Everyday that passes most Igbo rulers expose their ignorance of history through their arrogant or outright unimaginable actions.
Most of them forget that some ways of governance can never go down with Igbo people even in one million years to come
They forget the mistake of the colonial masters that came and imposed rulers, chiefs and kings on Igbo people forgetting that they had their ways of administration. They thought "since it was working in the north it would work for everyone, afterall all of them were just BLACK and PRIMITIVE" .
They forgot what history thought us: that most of these rulers then lost their senses and became semi Gods serving just the MASTERS (The British Empire) only.
They also forgot that some communities like mine (our great grand father et al) took the "WRONG" decision of taking back their honour and lives through beheading in the Market place their imposed ruler and helping the assailants to escape to far away lands. This however attracted he wrath of the EMPIRE which came and imposed inhumane conditions which the people not very tactically refused and rather challenged the EMPIRE by killing the first batch of the Empires soldiers. The empire came down with her Army and unmatched Fire -power and decimated my people. Their number decreased but their spirits to manage their destiny increased . They even as of then started to talk of the the good governance in a distant Cameroon by the Germans and expressed their wish to have the Germans come down to help them. The hammer of the empire fell on them again for this "assertions and day dreams"
We remember our history but these present rulers don't remember their history and the history of governance. The fire power of the 'present EMPIRE' is deceiving them to forgetting the biological aspect of being,actions and behaviour i.e that the mutation of the DNA takes a long and lengthy process though we all have learnt and advocate for non violent and less savage ways of doing things.
The set is the same now and the people are watching !
The people are the Igbo people and the story happened in Nenwe and to Nenwepeople of Igboland of the Federal Republic of Nigeria .
