The British heir to the throne, Prince Charles, delivers a very strong message to Biafrans in just one picture as he wraps up his three African nations visit. He arrived Nigeria on Tuesday alongside his wife, Camilla who were received by President Muhammadu Buhari at the Abuja state house.
The prince was however abandoned by his wife, Camilla,Duchess of Cornwall, in Lagos on their final leg of a tour of three African nations, Gambia, Ghana and Nigeria. The Prince of Wales, took over as head of the 53-member Commonwealth of Nations in April, succeeding his mother, Queen Elizabeth II.
As he concludes his three African nations tour, he will be leaving behind some memorable quotes and images that’ll take some time to digest.
One of such images that quickly captured the imagination of millions of Biafrans is the image below.
He was well seated in Front of Nigeria’s foremost traditional rulers kings, Obas, Chiefs, Emirs, all behind.
However, the placement of the traditional rulers is what has kept Biafrans talking on social media. while some have dismissed it, others have aired out their opinion about the image.
That single picture says a lot about British involvement in Nigeria’s murky History.
“His dearest child is seated by his right hand followed by his second most loved by his left side and others behind including his most hated” as quoted by one social media user, Uche.
It is no secret that Biafrans are fed up this ungodly arrangement and demand their God given freedom.
Its worth noting that the British Prince of wales also tested his Pidgin English skills with quotes like,
“How you dey? (How are you?)” he asked assembled dignitaries, politicians and formal heads of states.
“If life dey show you pepper, make pepper soup,” he said, which roughly translates to “life is what you make it”.
“The appalling atrocity of the slave trade, and the unimaginable suffering it caused, left an indelible stain on the history of our world.”
