On the raging Igbo/Eastern Nigeria/Biafra Question in Nigeria with its bloody accompaniments and malfeasances,
no matter what else is said or done by the Igbo Leadership Collective including Governors, Senators, Ohanaeze, Individuals and any other groups or persons that lay claim to leading anyone or anything in Igboland, *the absolute objective minimum response imposed by the overall situation on such aforementioned persons or groups in any cadre of Leadership IS TO DEMAND THAT THE QUESTIONS ARISING FROM THE CONSTITUTIONAL GRIEVANCES OF EASTERN NIGERIA BE REFERRED TO GENERAL REFERENDUM OF THE PEOPLE.
Anything less, no matter how fancifully put or strenuously presented, falls squarely between prevarication and aiding the enemy.
*That is the sad truth and that is the fountain from which all the trust-related altercations around the Igbo Leadership Collective flows*.
This is very dangerous state of affairs in Igboland, amidst a volatile situation that can snap without notice.
There is a Chinese proverb that says that *no matter how long you travel on the wrong road, you must return to the right road, if you intend to reach your destination.*
No quantum of academic arguments, grandstanding, recriminations or rationalization will take the place of the urgently required bracing-up to meaningfully engage the issues staring us all in the face.
The consequences evading this responses as we are doing currently, leaves a wide berth for the emergence of other Leadership options including the disastrous mob-processed variety.
