I am on the verge of losing my friends from the West, my colleagues, and my associates in the field of research. I have been subsequently condemned and referred to my tweets as unguided utterances from the mischievous scholar but I laugh because they mostly come from a sect that is ignorant of the precolonial, colonial, and post-colonial history of my home country-Nigeria.
I must appreciate your love and support in the fight against injustice as we all dream of a world of equitable justice and fairness. I am not moved by the pressure and threat coming from mostly my Western associates as “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of convenience and comfort, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy,” Martin Luther King, Jr.
Engage your friends in the discourse, let’s interact together and find a strategy to achieve our dream as African people. Invite more people.
© Uju Anya Ph.D.A journey of a thousand miles starts with a step as rightly put, in the past few days I have been the global topic of discourse not that my assertions were manipulated but because I am a woman of honor, I should shy from the truth.
It’s pertinent to note that I have received backlash, condemnation, criticism, and all sort of attacks because I made an attempt to unravel the hidden truth.
In a follow-up post, she added, “I am very happy over the awareness I’ve created 48 hours ago. The likes of Jeff Bezos and many others have reacted. Questions are now been asked about the “British Empire”.
Factually, Ojukwu and Gowon had a meeting in Ghana, to avert this sad history. But because the British empire which is now under the leadership of King Charles lll was paranoid, they influenced Gowon to go ahead simply because they don’t want another Japan in Africa.
The history books are there. “There was a country” by Chinua Achebe is there for facts!. “The Biafra story” by Frederick Forsyth and many others.
Let me also state it once again that my family was a victim. There is no family in Igbo land who did not have a share of this sad history. To this day, there’s no apology!!.
Again, I only dropped a tweet. The Irish people celebrated it with fireworks. You can check #Irishtwitter hashtag on Twitter for emphasis.
We must speak up! The Igbo needs justice!. Africa needs justice!
The 56 commonwealth countries need justice!”
