Why Nigerian cleric calls Biafra agitators mad people


Those agitating for the actualization of creation of Biafra as an independent country has caught the attention of a Renowned cleric in Nigeria, Rev. Uma Ukpai,  who called them nothing but ‘mad people’.

Rev. Uma Ukpai in Uyo, the headquarters of his ministry, known as the Abia-Born Cleric condemned agitations for Biafra by the Movement for the Actualisation of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) and the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

The Cleric said, anyone agitating for Biafra only confirms the level of his or her madness, adding that everybody is mad, but the difference only being in the level of madness.

“There will always be crazy people, even when people are seen to be normal. Whoever is agitating for Biafra shows the level of his madness, but everybody is mad, the difference is the level of your madness,” Ukpai hinted.

The Man of God who assessed Nigeria at sixty (60) years begining Ist October, 1960, said he is disappointed, there are still divisive elements holding the country apart.

He observed that until Nigerians begin to love and respect another, it would not make any meaningful progress.

“In Nigeria we are all in a hurry to reach where we are going to, so much so that we have no regards for others, no time for others and no love for others.

“As a nation until we love one another, we cannot notice one another, only when we love that which we have, that we can develop. But in Nigeria, we don’t care whether others eat or not.If we have no respect for one another, it also mean we don’t care whether others exist or not,” the cleric noted.

Reacting to the clamour for restructuring by General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) and the controversies it generated, Ukpai said: "I don’t think that he (Adeboye) is not entitled to his opinion.

“He is a man of God and he must have seen what happened during the civil war, which would guide him in the deductions he made. But to me, everybody is entitled to his opinion."
