A priest of the Catholic Archdiocese of Abuja, Reverend Father Oluoma Chinenye John in a video on YouTube minutes ago, sent a message to those agitating for Biafra and Oduduwa Republic. The Reverend noted that conflicts are not caused by differences but conflicts are caused because it is human nature.
He therefore added that anyone who thinks the issues in Nigeria will stop if separation is allowed, then such person needs to think again because even those homogeneous tribes that are agitating have their own unresolved internal issues.
According to Rev. Fr. Oluoma from the video: “I know that we have issues in Nigeria but if you think that division is what will solve Nigeria’s problems, then you have to think again. You are probably thinking that conflicts in Nigeria are as a result of our differences. You are simply confusing correlationality with lcausality.
That things are correlated doesn’t mean that they are cursed. That an Igbo man is succeeding in business does not mean it is because of his Igbo nature. That a part is more developed than others does not mean the others are cursed.
Many people keep saying the whites are smarter than us in terms of development and inventions. Why? They sat down to learn the Art of Development & Invention. We need to put all these agitations aside and learn the Art of Governance & Development to grow our nation”.
