Igbo-Biafra Nationalists Commend Moves To Address South East Marginalisation

 

 

The de-marginalization of the South-East Zone and integration of Igbo political stakeholders into national politics have been praised by the Igbo-Biafra Nationalists. This was said by the group’s convener, Mazi Uche Mefor, in a statement released on Thursday in Owerri in response to the colloquium that Igbo political stakeholders sponsored and hosted in Anambra state last week.

 

“Professor Charles Okechukwu Esimone made a case for the South-East adopting the initiative and proposal of the Igbo-Biafra Nationalists and the Indigenous People of Igbo Nation for Self-Determination on creating additional state(s) for the South-East as a plausible solution to the long-standing issues of Ndigbo marginalisation in Nigeria,” according to Mazi Mefor. The colloquium was held in Nnewi, Anambra State, on Friday, and was attended by Igbo political stakeholders of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

 

He stated that by providing palliative care and other necessities to his constituents, the group recognised Sen. Ifeanyi Ubah’s services to the social and economic welfare of the people. The Igbo-Biafra Nationalists’ Convener, IBN & IPINS, denied being partisan and emphasised that they had no particular interest in any one person, political party platform, or social-cultural group.

However, he gave the assurance that “no one’s enemy can be our enemy” and that they will always support any initiatives meant to allay the complaints of those going through a critical crisis in Nigeria’s democratic system. The organisation urged the elected officials in the South-East to go beyond words and implement their ideas into real, concrete steps that would alleviate the long-standing marginalisation of their people.

He said: ” 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.”

 

With great responsibility, the group noted that the ongoing campaign is having an impact, as seen by the recent colloquium held by South-East stakeholders to address the marginalisation of our area. According to him, the meeting held last week is proof positive that the Indigenous People of Igbo Nation for Self-Determination and the Igbo-Biafra Nationalists are headed in the correct direction. Mefor announced at the colloquium that Prof. Charles Esimone publicly agreed with our position that the Southeast’s small number of five states significantly contributes to our marginalisation.

 

He said: “This admission underscores the validity of our cause and reinforces the urgent need for action”.
