UNBELIEVABLE, BUT TRUE.
My mum lost her phone a few days and surprisingly, the person who stole the phone usually would put it on and flash me intermittently and then, switch off immediately.
So this morning I called her through someone's phone and guess what she told me??She was told by some Igbo boys around her house that her phone was stolen because of her unrelenting support for President Muhammadu Buhari and her unwillingness to support Biafra and I just busted out loud with laughter.
Imagine what they have reduced themselves to??
Stealing a poor woman's phone because she is not in support of Biafra?? So, the Biafra they are clamouring for is one where no one would have a different opinion on an issue??
NB: When I asked her why the support for Buhari that much, she asked me a question.
Nna, CAN'T YOU SEE THAT THE HAND OF GOD IS UPON THAT MAN??
DON'T YOU THINK THAT IF GOD IS NOT WITH BUHARI, HE WOULD HAVE DIED OUT OF THE HATRED AND PRAYERS OF NDI-IGBO??
Atleast, according to her, I have witnessed the death of two people who had been praying for Buhari to die but instead, they died in his place, while he goes in and out of hospital and comes out ALIVE. Doesn't that show you that there is something that man is doing right for Nigeria??
Me, I was SHOCKED that my own mother without even knowing the level of support I give to Buhari had this kind of conviction about the man.
But I jokingly asked her what she would do if they return the phone (impossible though) now that the governor's has PROSCRIBED them and she said, never will she collect.
YOU KNOW, I SINCERELY DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY IGBO PEOPLE ARE THIS WAY? You need to see the messages I had received between yesterday morning and now, you will pity me but surprisingly like my mother, I am now more resolute and there is no going back for me.
Biafra my foot.
