Share it:

Hon. Ghali Umar Na’Abba, the former speaker of the House of Representatives has pointed accusing fingers at former governors of the south east region for fueling the Biafra agitation due to their own failure.

Vanguard reports that Na’Abba said in Abuja that the inability of the former governors in the region to deliver to their people necessitated the shifting of blame and a renewed agitation for Biafra.

The former speaker said that the former governors targeted the vulnerable class in the region and oiled the protests and claimed that majority of Igbos were not in support of the agitation.


He noted that a lot of Igbos were scattered across the country doing business and it would be unfair to throw them into crises.

He said there was no need for Biafra and advised the Nigerian authority to handle the issue with care.

He said: “I think there is a sort of conspiracy. Most of the former governors from the south east did not do much for their states and this has been a source of frustration for the people of the south east. Let me add that it is not every body in the south east that is in support of this Biafra agitation. I think it is a misguided demand based on propaganda from people who are self serving.

“I don’t think there is any need for Biafra today. The Igbos are very hard working and enterprising. They are spread all over Africa. In Nigeria, there are over 25 million Igbos outside Igboland, achieving economic success.


“They are very dominant in the economies of all the states they live in. I don’t think it is fair to throw Igbos into some kind of crisis. I believe there must be some dialogue in order to douse the tension. The leadership of those agitators are just serving their interest. They target their propaganda towards a particular class of people who are ignorant. We have to handle it with much care.”
