JUST FOR A PLATE OF PORRIDGE

Share it:
Many times, we read some scriptures and bible stories we feel like bringing those people in the stories back to life and flog hell out of them.  I remember those days in the children's catechism class we were told that, everybody is suffering today in the world because of ordinary fruit eaten by Adam and his wife. I was like, why couldn't   Adam and his wife control their appetite knowing that the fate and destiny of the whole humanity is hanging on their shoulders at that point in time when Satan came up with that temptation.

What then can we say of Esau, who sold his birth right and the birth right of his future generation because of a plate of porridge? Hunger, lust and lasciviousness has destroyed individuals and organisations today because of wrong decision taken by an individual in the time of hunger or temptation by the flesh. Many men could not take the right decision at sight of the pubic area of the opposite sex or even the memory of it. Many ladies throw chasity and sanity to the wind at the sight of hard currency from men even those old enough to be their grandfathers.

Our politicians are in the know of what the people really want, but fear of losing their positions has made them to sell and betray their people at the altar of egocentrism. Is Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe the only Igbo senator in Nigeria, where are others? They have really sold the interest of their people for ordinary political appointment and some financial gratification in form of lobbying. "Ogbenye onu ntu" Poor wretched, and most miserable individuals.

When we told you that we need referendum not election, you told us that our votes will count, why have you all gone mute? Apostles of PVC, I guess you are coming back to your senses now. You cannot eat your cake and have it back. You accepted a plate of porridge at the expense of our lives and future. There is an Igbo proverb that says, "when a blind man finishes licking the Udara fruit he stepped on, by chance, let him go and get another one."

Until we begin to understand that power belongs to the people, we may not get it right as other advanced countries. We have all waited for the National Assembly of Nigeria to make laws to protect the vulnerable members of the public from incessant attacks from Boko Haram, Fulani Herdsmen and bandits but you were all concerned about hate speech oozing out from the victims of terror attacks out of frustration. Unfortunately, there is no man enough in the house to stop the anti-hate speech crusaders as many of them have sold their birth right for a plate of porridge to quench their insatiable hunger for wealth.  They could no longer stand on the side of the people as the powers that be will single them out as rebels and crush them adequately with the government's institutions for having a different opinion from the power brokers.

Just a reminder, after Esau sold his birth right to his smart younger brother Jacob, the stage was set for a generational war that lingers up till this moment. The war in the middle East is part of it. Majority of the Palestinians today are descendants of Esau and so the war for the blessed land of Abraham an Isaac lingers till this day. The curse that follows political class of this day for selling their birth right may not be erased in the next 100yrs. That is how bad it is. If you are a politician the best you can do is to stand with the people and allow the people to protect you, all we want is Biafra and you all know it. We don't want war, that is why we opt for a referendum, for people to decide where they want to belong. No matter what anyone does, Biafrans must be free.
