The presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC) in Nigeria’s 2019 election, Omoyele Sowore, has explained that if the Biafra agitation is assented to, “Nigeria is too small for Igbo“, Concise News reports. Also, Sowore said that former President Olusegun Obasanjo and President Muhammadu Buhari do not deserve to enter the South East sub-region because they participated in the civil war that killed so many citizens of Igbo extraction. He called on the Nigerian government to deliver justice for ‘Biafrans’. Sowore made the call while responding to a question on the Biafran agitation when he spoke in a town hall meeting organised by the Take It Back Movement in Greece. He said, “People are agitating for Biafra because they are looking for justice, the kind of justice that eluded them before the war, during the war and after the war. “If they are guaranteed the justice that they are looking for, Nigeria is too small for Igbos. Igbos have conquered the world in terms of sports, business and professionalism. “There is nowhere you go to in America that you don’t find them in health care and sports, the same with the Yoruba and the Hausa but in their situation, the Igbos were unjustly oppressed, killed, destroyed and emasculated within the Nigerian nation. “The biggest error, however, is that Biafran leaders are very quick to vote for people who participated in the war. “Didn’t Buhari participate in the war? Why was he allowed to even campaign in the East? Didn’t Obasanjo participate in the war? “Every time there is an opportunity to have a new President that comes from the South-east, the first people they will bring to reject it are South-easterners. When Babangida wanted to leave, it was Nzeribe who said he must stay forever. Read more here.
