in very many ways,
Her Excellency, Mrs. Bianca Ojukwu’s advisory
is
highly perceptive and very pragmatic

especially when the counsel is viewed from

🟣🟩 the perspective of the political history of Nigeria thus far

🟣🟩 the perspective of the political history of the igbo/tribe within the context of the Federal Republic of Nigeria thus far

🟣🟩 the perspective of the interplay between the various tribes of Nigeria
🔶️ in the area of the ruler-ship? of Nigeria
🔶️ in the area of political? reign? and influence? reign? of/in Nigeria
thus far



🟩🟦🟣 on the issue of
UNITY
she is very correct especially as human wisdom around the world advises that

🟥 A HOUSE DIVIDED AGAINST ITSELF CAN NOT STAND

🟥 A HOUSE DIVIDED AGAINST ITSELF CAN EASILY BE DESTROYED
BY ENEMIES

🟥 A HOUSE DIVIDED AGAINST ITSELF WILL FALL

this wisdom which has been demonstrated to be
of empirical value and empirical application
around the globe
i.e everywhere on earth
is reflected in her counsel,
which advises, inter-alia, that :

” We must unite to achieve our common goal.

…. we cannot make progress by becoming internally divided,
with some of our major stakeholders working against our collective interests.

But we must not box ourselves into a corner.

We must continue to build pragmatic partnerships
and
anchor our aspirations on
strategic engagements, alliances and negotiations

which,
while tapping into our collective goodwill and progressive agenda,
will advance our political interests. ”

🟩🟦🟣 on her advisory that
WE MUST NOT BOX OURSELVES INTO A CORNER
the inherent pragmatism therein becomes self-evident if we take a step in
the direction of learning lessons from Nigeria history.

to illustrate, let us look, first, at back in the day 1979.
