ASARI DOKUBO THESE MONTH IS MY MONTH 
This month is Biafra month.I have started my
tributes to the most resilient and uncelebrated
Biafrans.Today I will celebrate three distinguished
Biafra gentlemen who rejected the Rivers and South
Eastern(later renamed Cross River) states dangled as bait to them on 27 May 1967 and chose Biafra.
1.Matthew Tawo Mbu from Ogoja was Biafra foreign
minister from start to finish.
2.Capt Willy Murray-Bruce was the second in
command of the Biafra Air Force.This Ijaw man
fought to the last breath to defend his country. 3.Ambassador Ignatius Kogbara was Biafra envoy
to London.This incredible Ogoni man saw the future
but unfortunately his kinsman Ken Saro-Wiwa did
not believe him.He was the very last Biafran to
surrender.
Nigeria will never be able to successfully rewrite the history of this 3 wise men.
Next time, I will celebrate the father of Biafra; Biafra
provincial administrator of Yenagoa; Mr Frank
Opigo.
He gave the country its name!
30th of May we shall remember them
