The minister of foreign affairs Geofrey Onyeama has given his advice to all agitators for a Biafran state.
Onyeama who spoke over the weekend in Enugu state said all groups agitating for the independence of Biafra must adhere to the constitution and the diplomatic rules in achieving the demand.
He urged the group to desist from disorderliness and disruptive agitation as a means of justifying their emotion.
The minister also said the Biafra agitators are yet to establish a mandate of the Igbo nation as was the case in the United Kingdom where the Scottish separatists group have the mandate of their representatives at the parliament.
“I strongly believe the agitators are not speaking for Ndigbo as they do not have the mandate of the Igbo race to do so. My advice is for them to embrace dialogue rather than violence at all times,”Onyeama said.
Onyeama also advised the people of South East and other tribes in Nigeria to continue their support for the All Progressives Congress-led government.
He said this support will help stir Nigeria out of the present socio-economic and political doldrums occasioned by endemic corruption from the previous administration in the country.
Onyeama also said that President Muhammadu Buhari has put necessary mechanism in place to address the present economic crisis ravaging the country.
Also speaking, the Enugu State Chairman of the APC Ben Nwoye assured the national leadership of the party that the state chapter is highly committed in wrestling power from the Peoples Democratic party (PDP) in 2019.
Nwoye said the existing political structures are currently been oiled and strengthened at all levels in the state.
Meanwhile, some Igbo leader have called on President Buhari to release the incarcerated leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu.
The leaders during a World Igbo Summit Group led by a former senator Ike Nwachukwu said the Igbo race in committed to work for one Nigeria.
The group also released a 10-point communique calling for the release of Kanu and other detainees “since they do not constitute a threat to national security.”
