SINCE 1983 THERE HAS NOT BEEN ANY ATTEMPT TO ADDRESS NBM OBJECTIVES – FF

Interesting view point from Founding Father Idemudia Nicholas.

“SINCE 1983 THERE HAS NOT BEEN ANY ATTEMPT TO ADDRESS NBM OBJECTIVES. ROWLAND OKOLO AND HIS FRIENDS NEVER SAT DOWN TO DRAW UP BLUE PRINTS BEFORE THEY STARTED CREATING NEW TEMPLES, SO THIS MEANT THAT ALL THE SUBSEQUENT TEMPLES NEVER REALLY ADDRESSED THIS QUESTION. CLEARLY ROWLAND OKOLO AND HIS FRIENDS BELIEVED NBM WAS ABOUT DRINKING OGOGORO,DANCING IN THE BUSH AND FIGHTING WITH PYRATES WHICH WAS ALL THEY DID AND ALL THEY TAUGHT THE OTHER TEMPLES TO DO. EVEN WHEN THEY REGISTERED THE MOVEMENT, THEY DID NOT THINK DEEPLY ABOUT HOW TO ACHIEVE THE MOVEMENTS OBJECTIVES AS MOST OF THEM NEVER UNDERSTOOD THOSE OBJECTIVES IN THE FIRST PLACE EVEN AS SOCIAL SCIENCE STUDENTS. JOE OGUFERE WHO USURPED THE HEADSHIP FROM FEMI ( BANDA KAMUZO) STUDIED HISTORY, ROWLAND OKOLO ( IBN YASHIN) SOCIOLOGY AND POLITICAL SCIENCE, TONY EJIOFOR (JEZEBEL) SOCIOLOGY AND POLITICAL SCIENCE. THERE IS NO WAY YOU CAN STUDY POLITICAL SCIENCE AND SOCIOLOGY WITHOUT STUDYING ABOUT AFRICAN LIBERATION MOVEMENTS,ORGANISATION OF AFRICAN UNITY,PAN-AFRICANISM, THE PARTITION OF AFRICA,FEDERALISM IN NIGERIA AND OTHER SUCH TOPICS OF RELEVANCE TO THE NEO-BLACK MOVEMENT, YET THEY FAILED TO MAKE THE CONNECTION BETWEEN WHAT THEY WERE LEARNING IN THE LECTURE ROOMS AND THE NEO-BLACK MOVEMENT THEY WERE LEADING. EVEN NOW TONY EJIOFOR STILL REASONS AND WRITES LIKE AN IMBECILE EVEN AT OVER SIXTY YEARS OF AGE. THE FIRST NATIONAL HEAD AUSTIN EDOROR WAS A FORMER PYRATE AND AN ENGINEERING GRADUATE SO KNEW NEXT TO NOTHING ABOUT PAN-AFRICANISM OR BLACK HISTORY AND NATIONALISM. WHAT HE UNDERSTOOD WAS FIGHTING PYRATES WHICH HE SEEMED TO SPEND ALL HIS TIME DOING. THE DONATING OF ITEMS TO MOTHERLESS BABIES HOMES WAS SOMETHING THE PYRATES DID AND WITH MORE MEMBERS,AND NEW TEMPLES IN IBADAN AND IFE THIS WAS INCORPORATED INTO THE NBM UNDER THE MOTTO SOCIAL JUSTICE AND EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES FOR ALL. THIS WAS ACTUALLY THE MOTTO FOR THE DEFUNCT REPUBLIC OF BIAFRA AND MUST HAVE BEEN SUGGESTED BY SOMEBODY WHO WAS A BIAFRAN SYMPATHISER WHICH QUITE A FEW OF THE 1983 MEN WERE AS MOST OF THEM WERE FROM THE EAST AND SOME WERE MEMBERS OF THE BOYS COMPANY ATTACHED TO THE BIAFRAN ARMY DURING THE CIVIL WAR. THE MINDLESS VIOLENCE A FEW OF THEM WERE CAPABLE OFF CLEARLY INFLUENCED THEIR CHOICE OF CANDIDATES FOR RECRUITMENT AND THEY SIMPLY MOVED FROM CAMPUS TO CAMPUS RECRUITING ALL MANNER OF HARD-MEN AND STARTED CALLING MEMBERS STRONG MEN. AT SOME POINT THEY DECIDED TO MOVE FROM STUDENT UNION POLITICS TO NATIONAL POLITICS AND DR FRED AMADASUN THE RABID POLITICIAN WAS AT THE FOREFRONT OF THIS. AGAIN POLITICS IS ABOUT IDEOLOGY NOT RABID SELF INTEREST BUT DR AMADASUN AND THE NBM POLITICIANS HAD NO IDEOLOGY BEYOND NAKED POWER,SELF INTEREST AND VIOLENCE WHICH WAS WHAT THEY STOOD FOR NEPOTISM,FAVOURITISM, CORRUPTION. NBM HAS PRODUCED SEVERAL TOP GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS BUT ONLY VICTOR EKHATOR CAN POINT TO WHAT HE ACHIEVED IN GOVERNMENT. MOST OF THE OTHERS SIMPLY BEHAVED LIKE THE FREEBOOTING AND FILIBUSTERING BUCCANEERS THEY ARE AT HEART” – FF – Idemudia Nicholas
