The Chairman, Defacto Customary Government of Biafra (Implementation Committee), Alhaji Mujahid Dokubo Asari has urged the people of the South-South and South-East geopolitical zones of the country to unite for the actualisation of Biafra independence.
Asari who made this known in an interview with our correspondent maintained that the founders of Biafra were people of the South-South and South-East regions when the country had the duo regions as Eastern Nigeria.
He said, “the only economic and security solutions for the South-south and South-east are Biafra independence.
“The North and South-west have always used the experience of the war that Nigeria won against Biafra to underrate the South-south and South-east.
“They will continue to politically and economically marginalize us if we remain as one Nigeria.
“Central power will continue to revolve around the North and South-west in order to ensure that the South-south and South-east remain weakened and voiceless.
“It is unfortunate that the northerners and south-westers have succeeded in making the leaders of the South-south and South-east hate the Biafra struggle for independence.
“I make bold to say that the freedom which the South-south and South-east are in serious need of can only be realized in Biafra independence.
“However, we will not relent in our pursuit for Biafra independence despite the shortsightedness of some of the South-south and South-east leaders who have placed their personal interest above the interest of our present and future generations.”
