A former member, Hospital Management Board in Nasarawa state, Chief Davidson Okechekwu Amadi, has declared Biafra dead .Chief Amadi said the Republic of Biafra is no longer feasible. He also described the leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, as a selfish man who should be ignored A former member, Hospital Management Board in Nasarawa state, Chief Davidson Okechekwu Amadi, has said that the actualisation of the Republic of Biafra was no longer feasible. Amadi, a native of Imo state who was born and brought up in Northern Nigeria, said this in an interview with Daily Sun. He added that the leader of IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, is leading the agitation for his selfish interest and should not be taken seriously. He stated that when the chips are down, Kanu would run out of the country and leave the poor and innocent people that he is leading to suffer and die.
He, therefore, requested Igbo leaders to call the agitators to order in order to ensure peace across the country. He went further to say the reason behind the agitation was poverty and desire to get cheap popularity. He urged the people of the south-east to remember what Ojukwu did when he flew out of the country and allowed the helpless people to their faith, adding that Biafra died since 1970 when Col. Effiong handed over the region to then General Yakubu Gowon. His words: “Nwazurike who started this struggle has amassed wealth for himself and has property scattered all over the world. “Kanu is also looking for money and popularity. He lives in London while his brother lives in Germany but the innocent people they are leading are the poor ones in Nigeria.
” Meanwhile, the senior special assistant to President Muhammdu Buhari on media and publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, has decried the rate at which social media users in Nigeria promote tribalism on various mediums. Speaking at the Positive Voices Campaign Project showcase event in Abuja on Thursday, July 13, Mallam Shehu noted that Nigeria had dealt with the problem of tribalism in the 1960s but it is unfortunate that the social media is bringing back this dangerous trend. He stressed that it is important that Nigeria remains peaceful, stating that every Nigerian is free to live in any part of the country and cannot be threatened by any violence.
