The Biafran delegate in the company of their two attorneys will meet President Donald Trump and other White House officials tomorrow, 21st July 2017.
The details of the meeting and topic covered will be widely serialised by THE REPUBLICAN NEWS during and after the meeting.
This is the very first time Biafrans are being invited by the government or President of any country to hear their grievances with regard to their push for an independent state of Biafra.
This meeting could be a big turning point for the Biafran secessionist group.
Whatever transpires in this meeting could be a game changer for the entire struggle.
It could be recalled that the United States has stated its support for one United Nigeria, a message passed on by its ambassador to Nigeria.
But, it could also be recalled that the United States was indeed against the formation of the state of Israel but later agreed to it.
Could the same fate befall Biafra? The preamble to that question could be addressed in this first meeting with Biafrans in the White House tomorrow.
For the fact that this meeting is scheduled and the White House agreed to grant such audience to Biafrans is a giant step for Biafra.
