Don’t dissipate your energy on Igbo presidency, go for Biafra, cleric tells Ndigbo: Politics : Nigerialog.com - Nigeria's Premier Online Forum
“I insist that what would favour Ndigbo is to expedite efforts to actualize Biafran nation and not an Igbo president because any Igbo man elected as Nigerian President would not last in office and would be subjected to the wishes and dictates of the power brokers in Nigeria”.[/size][/font]
He called on the British government to work out Biafra freedom “since they were the people who amalgamated the Northern and Southern parts of Nigeria that have remained incompatible till date.” He said that the British architects of one Nigeria would not have rest until they undo what they did “against the collective will of the people”.
Bishop Udeh maintained that the killings by the Boko Haram insurgents and other banditries in the Northern part of Nigeria that had refused to abate were consequences of the millions of the Igbo killed during the civil war, adding that the violence would only stop when the Igbo were allowed to have Biafra.
In his opinion, the best thing is for all the three major ethnic groups in Nigeria to rise up and fight for their individual nation-states diplomatically without violence, saying that the one Nigeria project had failed.
