Rommy Ezeonwuka, a Board of Trustees member of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), has said that the agitation for Biafra is wrong if the Igbo continue ‘development of other cities outside Igboland.’
He expressed concerns over the continued establishment of factories by people of Igbo decent without recourse to investing in their homelands.
Ezeonwuka, who spoke to newsmen in Nnewi on Saturday, insisted that the Igbo must embrace the think-home philosophy before the Biafra republic could be achieved.
He said it would not be an overstatement to say that the Igbo were the most enterprising race in black Africa but have not been able to harness their potentialities to their best advantage.
He said, “Nobody should give Ndigbo Biafra. We already have Biafra here with us and Biafra belongs to us as was declared on May 30, 1967. It is an act of stupidity to ask anybody to give you Biafra.
“The land of Biafra is crying because our people in diaspora have abandoned it to develop other areas like Abuja, Lagos and other places and you are here telling them to give you Biafra.”
