For Ndigbo, another possibility allures in 2019. Truly, in 2019, Nigeria will experience another decision procedure. After oneself delivered catastrophe of 2015, the coming decision ought to be an open door for Igbo to retouch or further blemish their odds in a Nigeria that is based on multi-ethnic skeleton.
Will it be a period for Igbo to fix the error they did to themselves in 2015, which has compounded their destiny? Will Ndigbo utilize that brilliant chance to make political harmony with the remainder of Nigeria and above all, connote their aim, their availability, and their appropriateness to deal with the cudgel in 2023? Or on the other hand will Ndigbo neglect to catch the current and rather make another offensive political error that will lessen their odds of driving the nation in 2023? These are basic inquiries, whose answers are as yet spinning in the breeze yet which, one way or the other, must be replied by how well the Igbo play their card in 2019.
All things considered, Igbo committed a grievous error in 2015, by pressing all their political eggs in one delicate bushel. Call it political naivety. Call it political nearsightedness or anything other than it was an expensive mix-up that boomeranged. The progressively outstretching influences of that unfortunate political mix-up resound in the baneful clanking the Igbo have made their essential business in Nigeria since 2015.
That oversight discovers articulation in an ineffectively enunciated and outrageously brought forth Biafran ideal world, whose logical inconsistencies charges completely at the disorganized interest for it. Ndigbo may endeavor to underplay the impacts of the 2015 political mix-up however the caustic darts and enraged charges of minimization and contradicting rackets that radiated after the 2015 decision demonstrate that Igbo is looked with the outcomes of its political decision in the last race.
As dreamer as the Biafra disturbance may be, Ndigbo must remain in Nigeria and battle it out with other constituent units. Requesting to be given Biafra, with all the inchoate contentions and the genuine guarantees of an all the more clashing life in said Biafra, whenever in all actuality, adds up to a pessimist method for leaving an issue one incurred on oneself and which one must stand up to.
To get what they want or what has a place with them in Nigeria, Ndigbo must understand that there is no easy route; there is no space for the self indulgence, which had specked a large portion of their tumults since 2015. There is no space for penniless intrigue. There is no space for the unfortunate casualty attitude the race has determinedly adhered to. There is no space for the sort of gathering think Ndigbo have embraced since 2015. Ndigbo must understand that they will make their bed in Nigeria the manner in which they need to lie on it.
In governmental issues, control is never given on a platter of gold. It doesn't desire free. It doesn't arrive on your laps since you have sufficiently made intrigue to be felt sorry for by others. It doesn't come to you since you have made the most intense clamor. It doesn't come to you since you have cried most intense. It is battled for and the most ideal approach to battle for power is for a race to first, grasp contemplation. This is a period the race goes into its internal covens, surveys its moves and methodologies up until now, discloses to itself the home truth and embraces new, functional and satisfactory techniques to get what it needs.
Tragically, one of the significant inadequacies Igbo have is the absence of limit with respect to contemplation. Igbo have not yet fangled out a gathering where it looks itself in the mirror and discloses to itself reality, regardless of how unpalatable it might be. This insufficiency has represented why any heretic, fraud and miscreant catches the inside stage, with shabby mainstream mantra and each other individual pursues. This is the dismal stage Igbo are today and this can never raise the race in any circle of human undertaking, talk less of legislative issues.
Igbo must reproduce its general public and permit the scholar ruler to expect his legitimate spot to manage where and how the general public is going. Igbo must scatter the unskilled riffraff that has caught its position of royalty and get for themselves a solid administration that would not evade from disclosing to them the unpalatable truth and outcast the riffraff from the honored position to the least rung of the general public where it has a place. A tail does not manipulate everything else, as we are seeing in Igboland today.
Next, Igbo must advance a solid political administration that isn't controlled by egotistical and restricted interests and who won't sink the aggregate ship for its personal responsibility. This scourge has been the particular most omen decay that has held Igbo down at present. Those clubs of evergreen political profiteers who have made a real existence business of making a benefit from Ndigbo must be resigned. This developing political initiative must plunk down and assemble the great minds in Igboland to diagram a political route forward.
Nobody ought to fear hearing contradicting suppositions on how best to accomplish the objectives. Nobody should try to take the journey to the careless crowd, accepting to procure the result. This is the thing that driven Igbo to the political valley it is in today. Whatever political guide Ndigbo comes up, on the way and past 2019 should take full respect that Nigeria is a multi-ethnic and multi-social element so whatever political course should satisfactorily deal with the interests, the feelings of trepidation and the affirmations of other ethnic gatherings. It must, while taking care of the Igbo political needs, suit the feelings of dread and interests of others.
At that point, Igbo must catch up by recognizing political stages that will make it for all intents and purposes workable for them to understand their interests and assemble support for that stage. This, in no way, shape or form, will add up to prohibiting different stages yet rather the convergence of endeavors at supporting or building such recognized stage. Such stage could be APC, PDP, APGA or some other stage yet Ndigbo must guarantee they live with the results of supporting such stage and living with the aftermaths and not sulk or look for dissection on the grounds that their picked stage lost in a decision. That implies in excess of a thin viewpoint will become possibly the most important factor in choosing what stage Igbo need to back to understand their political desire in Nigeria.
In light of the decision of stage, which I assume, must be based on future qualities and prospects, Ndigbo ought to continue promptly to fix and reconstruct harmed spans with each other ethnic gathering in Nigeria. Igbo should utilize its most splendid and best for this errand and guarantee that no stone is left unturned in establishing the profound fissure that have been imprudently made in the extension that connections Ndigbo and other ethnic gatherings in Nigeria. The point is to wipe out common doubt, outrage, and bitterness with different Nigerians for the 2019 and consequent decisions. Extensions repaired, Ndigbo should look sufficiently profound to get the best Igbo that isn't just Igbo enough yet trusted by other ethnic gatherings to guide the Nigerian ship to productive grapple and get ready such individual for the 2023 administration.
With the prior, Ndigbo can go into the 2019 decision with a profound conviction that whatever move they make in 2019 will influence the future connection among Igbo and different Nigerians and obviously, set up the justification for the since a long time ago expected Igbo administration in 2023. Igbo should take note of that how well they play the 2019 card will decide how they accomplish the 2023 objective. On the off chance that they abuse their cards again in 2019, they should grasp the truth that their 2023 journey for the country's administration will get enormously harmed.
Then again, if Igbo chooses to approach the 2019 race with the authoritative post-2015 decision mentality, with the resentment, harshness and profound fumed annoyance they are continuing from their verifiable slip-up of 2015, at that point they ought to be set up to warm that job longer than 2023.
After 2023, they will understand reality in the expression that power is never surrendered on a platter of gold. One needs to work to get the power he longs for. Once more, it is extremely troublesome in Nigeria today to get control while irritating or working at cross reason with most of different Nigerians. It is difficult to get control while building a mass of contempt, enmity, and sharpness. It is difficult to access control while raising antisocial battalions around oneself. We should open up, contact others and produce a container nation understanding that will enormously help us to understand our simply political aspiration. How we play our cards in 2019 will decide how prepared we are for power and Ndigbo must begin presently to progress in the direction of making the absolute best utilization of that brilliant chance. Descendants won't extra Ndigbo in the event that they flop again to utilize this brilliant window.
Biafra? Die that idea. It is an unrealizable perfect world for the present.
