I don`t blame most Nigeria leaders and their subjects for having a very poor opinion of Ndigbo and their raw emotion toward unproductive and retrogressive Nigeria state.   The Igbo are known to be republican in nature and industrious. Before the coming of the Europeans the Igbos have already establish leadership style that were based on merit not inheritance. They were very proud of their origin although often exploits outside their enclave in search of greener pasture. In 1967 the Igbo went to war because war was inevitable. The civil war was catastrophic to Ndigbo, the human casualties were higher but the economic casualties were much higher.  The outcome of the war remains the defining moment of today`s reality of Ndi-Igbo in Nigeria political space.  The war changed everything, the leaders become the lead and the person at the front seat relegated to the back seat, those who survived the bloodshed whether civilians or combatants tried to rebuild their shattered lives. Many could not. It was pronounced to be over in 1970 but till date the war is still on going in a cold form. Economic blockade of Igbo land, federal government systematic marginalization of Igbo enclave is a policy making agenda of successive regime. Finally, and perhaps most important, the civil War devastated a  generation, leaving not only social, political, and economic devastation , but also  spiritual chaos in its wake.  The war destroyed the hope that Igbo industrial revolution was on the front foot and its making inexorable progress toward the creation of a more rational, more just, and more enlightened black race.   In many respects, the war marked the death of old Igbo man. The Igbo had lost its vitality and its meaning, and was poised on the threshold of collapse. Confidence in the perfectibility of Igbo nation and assurance of Igbo supremacy had evaporated. In their place emerged a culture of fragility, vulnerable, and leaders who chose to serve Fulani caliphate instead of their own people.  Despite their extraordinary technology accomplishments during the war and the trail of destruction the war left behind, the Igbo must accept the sad truth that there is need for readiness to engage in combat if they want dignity from Nigeria state. The truth being that “strength” is the only assured path to glory and mutual respect. They said; “if you want peace you must prepare for war”. For Nigeria state, the civil war is a war without end and we must accept it and confront it head on. The recent purported downgrading and eventual closer of ENUGU international airport is another assurance that Nigeria state has not left the battle field.  Until Ndigbo accept this reality there could be no remedy.
