Legitimacy is derived from the people. In other words, anyone who does not derive the right of representation from the people is an illegitimate individual or group as the case may be. There are conventional procedures at determining the veracity of right of representation. It is observable through conventional instruments like election through the polls, by a general consensus among the population or via traditional or customary inheritance, Legitimacy of representation which comes through any of the established procedures qualifies for legality.

The political system in Nigeria was established in a manner that follows a pattern where a section of the country was handed the mantle of leadership in a bid to sustain mediocrity. The political power in Nigeria was deliberately handed down to the Hausa-Fulani constituents of northern Nigeria, historically also known as the Muhammadan Emirate of the north. These northern political lords, alongside their neocolonial masters from the Western World, have a running conspiracy, to do all within their powers to ensure a tradition of power change, which keeps power rotating among the northern political fold. These northern political lords in absolute conformity with this running political tradition, not only control the polity at the centre of governance, but also desecrate other constituent ethnic traditional institutions, in a system of desperation, where a northern overlord influences to a large extent, the eventual ascendancy to the throne of power among other constituent ethnic traditional institutions in Nigeria, using any known and sworn stooge, to sustain their control of the target ethnic block.

This running desperation to sustain control over all other ethnic people in Nigeria, gave birth to what is today known as THE OHANAEZE NDI-IGBO (A supposed ethnopolitical, traditional and cultural Assembly of the IGBO people of Biafra). The political strength of the so-called Ohanaeze Ndi-Igbo however, does not stretch across the entire Biafraland except among the core IGBO speaking enclave of the old eastern parts of Nigeria originally addressed as Biafra. The constancy of this influence on the political realities of other ethnic nationalities in Nigeria, demands that for anyone to ascend the throne of rulership in other parts of Nigeria, the person must first obtain the support and go-ahead from the northern feudal lords.

Mr. John Nnia Nwodo, the president of the now proscribed Ohanaeze Ndi-Igbo is an archetypal product of this system of cultic ascendancy among the IGBO speaking people of Biafra. The entire political gladiators of the Eastern parts of what is today known as Nigeria,  such as the governors, the senators, and speakers of the various state assemblies and members of Nigeria's house of representatives, the entire political appointees from the named Eastern parts of Nigeria,  are all products of same political mishap. They serve as the extended arms of rulership for the northern oligarchy. They speak, act and do all the biddings of the northern feudal lords. These political sons and daughters to the northern overlords are consistently in deliberate and stern opposition to the yearnings and cryings of their supposed constituents(Biafrans).

The northern feudal lords use these political stooges in all acts of perpetrating atrocities among the harmless but vulnerable people of Biafra. One of the very obvious instances is the September 14th, 2017 confederation, in the enforced disappearance of the leader of the indigenous people of Biafra, Mazi Prince Nnamdi Kanu, his royal father, HRH. Eze Israel Okwu Kanu, the Paramount ruler of Afara-Ibeku autonomous community, of Umuahia, Abia state, and the queen mother, Lolo Okwu Kanu. And the regrettable massacre of peaceful BIAFRAN nationalists, who paid homage to the palace home of the Supreme Leader of the indigenous people of Biafra, Mazi Prince Nnamdi Kanu on the same fateful day of September 14th, 2017.

The shameful face of decay of infrastructures across Eastern Nigeria and Biafraland is also one of the many biddings of these northern feudal lords. The enforcement of an entrenchment of avoidable hardship among Biafrans is one Among others. The deliberate dichotomy in tuition fees from northern Nigeria to Eastern Nigeria, that ensures Biafrans who occupy the Eastern parts of what is today called Nigeria pay excessive tuition fees without reasonable logic is a means to suffer Biafrans out of education. The decade-long establishment of checkpoints for illegal extortion across Eastern parts of same country, despite being declared the most peaceful part of the country, Nigeria, by a World searchlight on Nigeria, without same in the chaotic Northern Nigeria, is another type of economic warfare against peace-loving Biafrans which no political representative from Eastern Nigeria has ever spoken and fought against, except the organized civilian population of the  indigenous people of Biafra(IPOB).

This consistency of opposition to the yearnings of the people of Biafra( indigenous occupants of the old eastern part of Nigeria) by the Nnia Nwodo-led OHANAEZE NDI-IGBO and the entire political institutions in Eastern Nigeria, completely occupied by these afore-explained charade of northern political stooges in Biafraland(Eastern Nigeria) and the deliberate economic emasculation, led the people of Biafra into declaring them all (Political institutions of eastern Nigeria), political-nongrata as long as the opinions and binding consensus of the larger population of the people of Biafraland(Eastern Nigeria) is concerned. They have completely lost any form of political influence on the people of Biafra(Eastern Nigeria). Having observed where the political loyalty of these bandwagons, OHANAEZE, and the political faces lie.

The people of Biafra (Eastern Nigeria) have accordingly chosen to completely lay their political future in the hands of the organized civilian population of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB). This  unarguable analysis and existing FACT is observable from the many compliances to the various sit-at-home orders, given by the same Biafra nationalist population (IPOB), in honour of Biafrans who died through the Nigerian and worldwide enforced genocide of 1967-70, erroneously and deceitfully tagged the Nigeria-Biafra war of 1967-70, remembered every 30th of May. The recent absolute or complete lockdown of activities in Biafraland on 14th of September, 2018, in honour of Biafra nationalists, unreasonably murdered at the Afra-Ibeku home of the supreme leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Prince Nnamdi Kanu, and also to mark one year anniversary of same.

The various unhidden compliances from the people of Biafra to various civil disobedience, which push to force the Federal government of Nigeria into listening to the plea by Biafrans for an independence referendum. The numerous goodwill and support from the BIAFRAN population also shows the level of legitimacy the BIAFRAN nationalists enjoy from the people of Biafra from homeland and diaspora.

The OHANAEZE NDI-IGBO and the political institutions in Biafraland (Eastern Nigeria), have in fact, no iota of influence on the wills of the BIAFRAN people. The world must begin to see this OHANAEZE and all Eastern political representatives as the greatest enemy of the BIAFRAN population. No form of consultation with these charades and bandwagon of mostly octogenarian grand criminals that mortgage the future of the very vulnerable BIAFRAN population is welcome at all. They hate populist opinions to the core and by extension see the interest of the BIAFRAN population as merchandise for personal aggrandizement and substances for individual political bargaining for advancement.

The continued enslavement of the people is their strength for brighter individual economic growth. The Nigeria estate is a jamboree in reality and a congregating house of the most brutal, inhumane, criminal, satanic oppressors ever known to humanity. The United Nations and the World at large must see any commitment to these explained malefactors as an aiding and abetting of mass murder, human rights violations, entrenchment of poverty and overall oppression of the poor and vulnerable human population.

Any sincere consultation on behalf of the people of Biafra must be with the organized civilian population of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), with global headquarters in Germany. Biafrans have suffered too many hardships that the United Nations and the World must rise up and avoid any further avoidable bureaucratic commitments in any move to rescue the suffering human population in Biafra.

Alex C. Okeke is a genuine comrade of the peaceful Biafra restoration campaign under the global leadership of the uncompromising IPOB.
