Reacting to former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s anti-Biafra statements on Friday, some prominent Igbo leaders claim the former President is talking rubbish.
The Sun reports that the Archbishop of Enugu Ecclesiastic Province, Most Rev Dr. Emmanuel Chukwuma in his reaction said Biafra cannot be wished away so long as Ndigbo are still being neglected and marginalised in the Nigerian state.
The fiery cleric said that it was nonsensical for Obasanjo to say that the Biafran agitators have commercialised the cause
Also, leader of Movement for the Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) Solomon Chukwu, said the former president was talking nonsense.
”We know where we are going. Chief Obasanjo is talking nonsense. Whether the likes of Obasanjo like it or not, very soon Biafra will be a reality. We are not ignorant people as he said. We know what we are doing and very soon we will get there”
