The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, has said the actualisation of the Republic of Biafra is possible.
He said that in realisation of this, South-East governors were afraid of losing their positions and political relevance in the area.
He said that was why the governors in the zone were not supporting the Biafra struggle.
Kanu stated this in a chat with our correspondent in his father’s palace at Afaraukwu, Umuahia, Abia State.
He said the fear being entertained by such people was neither here nor there because the Biafra republic would be founded on the principles of justice, equity and fairness.
He said, “I don’t know why they are just afraid. Biafra will be a home for all people who agree with our values.
“If you are from Sokoto, you can be a ‘Biafran’ if you believe in our value system of equity, justice and fairness.
“I don’t even intend to be the head of the Biafra republic in the end. I don’t like to always lead. I want to be led so that I can proffer solutions.
“If Uwazuruike had done well, I won’t be doing what I’m doing today. I’m into this struggle because of leadership vacuum.
“I’m into this fight because my people are suffering; they are being denied their rights and privileges. Nothing will stop this fight. And I must assure you, we are almost there. Biafra is almost here with us.” (Punchng.com)
