Ojukwu's Speach In 1994 by Burruchaga71(m): 7:52am On Oct 08, 2019
In Ojukwu's first post war speech in February 1994 at the Lagos Law school.

He said the following:

''The war has come and gone but we remember with pride and hope, the three heady years of freedom. These were the three years when we had the opportunity to demonstrate what Nigeria would have been even before 1970.
In the three years of war, necessity gave birth to invention. During those three years, we built bombs, we built rockets, we designed and built our own delivery system. We guided our rockets, we guided them far and guided them accurately.

For three years, blockaded without the hope of imports, we maintained engines, machines and technical equipments. The state extracted and refined petrol with our own indigenous technology called the ' The Biafran pot '.
Individuals refined petrol in their backyards gardens.

We built and maintained airports and air strips. We maintained them under heavy bombardment. We spoke to the world through a telecommunication system engineered by local ingenuity. The world heard us and spoke back at us.

We built armoured tanks, built cars and refined crude oil, etc. We modified aircraft from trainers to fighters, from passenger aircraft to bombers. In three years of freedom, we became the most civilized, the most technologically advanced black people on earth''

One of the reasons why they've refused to open the seaports in Biafra land was that they can't allow the seaports to function otherwise we'll import arm through to fight the government again and also for economic emasculation and underdevelopment of the region.

The hatred the Nigerian government has for Biafrans cannot be hidden. If they had allow us to built those ammunitions, we wouldn't be talking of buying arms and ammunitions.
Biafra was able to achieve much in war time under strict and harsh condition what Nigeria has not been able to achieve in its long years of peace.

To show their deep hatred for Biafrans, out of jealousy they destroyed all the feats achieved by Biafrans. The Biafran research documents were burnt, what a waste of ingenuity.
Nigeria all along has what it needed to compete with the world but fear and jealousy blinded them and a people's ingenuity has been left to waste while the whole populace wallow in ignorance.

What they've been trying to avoid all these years is here before them. After the war, they thought they can now have their peace because Biafra is dead and buried, not knowing the worse is about to come and the should welcome it when it comes to their doorsteps.

When you hear "Truth hurts" and "Truth is bitter", this is an example.

But soon, the world will know that Biafra is the pride of Africa.

"In Biafra, Africa died." Therefore, only in Biafra can Africa resurrect. It does not matter if you like it or not, it is a fact, and it is the reality.

Nigeria is like a family that joined hand to crush the child that'll make them proud do to envy.
