Igbo-Biafra Nationalists Commend Move To Integrate Southeast Into National Politics



On Monday, Igbo political stakeholders convened to discuss de-marginalization of the Southeast zone and integration into national politics. The Igbo-Biafra Nationalists organisation praised their efforts.

The group’s convener, Mazi Uche Mefor, made this declaration in a statement in response to a colloquium held last Friday in Anambra State by Igbo political stakeholders.


Mefor claimed that the Igbo people are now beginning to realise how important it is to unite and achieve liberation.


According to Mefor: “Professor Charles Okechukwu Esimone, at a colloquium themed ‘De-marginalisation of South-East Zone and Integration into National Politics,’ which was hosted in Nnewi, Anambra State, on Friday and attended by Igbo political stakeholders of the All Progressives Congress (APC), made a case for the Southeast adopting the initiative and proposal of the Igbo-Biafra Nationalists and the Indigenous People of Igbo Nation for Self-Determination regarding creating additional state(s) for the Southeast as a plausible solution to the longstanding issues of marginalization of Ndigbo in Nigeria.


“We also acknowledge Senator Ifeanyi Ubah’s contributions to the social and economic welfare of our people, which he has once again demonstrated by distributing palliatives and other essentials to his constituents.

“The Igbo-Biafra Nationalists and the Indigenous People of Igbo Nation, IBN & IPINS, therefore, use this medium to say that we are not partisan and we do not have special interest in any individual, political party platform, or social-cultural group.


“However, we will always accommodate any efforts geared towards addressing our grievances as a people facing serious crisis in Nigeria’s political space for “no one’s enemy can be our own enemy.” In the circumstances, therefore,this is a resounding call to action for the elected representatives in the South-East region.


“We urge them to transcend mere rhetoric and translate our proposals into tangible actions that address the longstanding marginalization of our people.


“It is imperative that our senators and members of the House of Representatives take concrete steps by sponsoring bills on the floor of the national assembly to address the systemic marginalization of the South-East region. Until they do so, they remain complicit in perpetuating the problem rather than being part of the solution.


“We observe with utmost responsibility that our relentless campaign is yielding results, as evidenced by the recent colloquium convened by Southeast stakeholders to discuss the marginalization of our region. This gathering serves as vindication of the fact that the Igbo-Biafra Nationalists and the Indigenous People of Igbo Nation for Self-Determination are on the right path.


“During the colloquium, Prof Charles Esimone openly acknowledged and concurred with our stance that the Southeast’s limited representation with only five states is a significant factor contributing to our marginalization. This admission underscores the validity of our cause and reinforces the urgent need for action,” he said.
