  • 2023 Presidency: Don’t remind
    Nigerians of Biafra – Gov Ishaku

    cautions South-East

  • Governor Darius Ishaku of Taraba State has backed the Igbo people of the South East geo-political zone to produce Nigeria’s next President.
  • Governor Ishaku noted that there is no need to stop zoning at
    this critical time since it had been applied in the past, saying it would be like changing the rules of the game midway.
  • He said the zoning arrangement must be sustained, calling on
    the stakeholders to workout a formula that would keep Nigeria
    in one piece.
    “We must not do anything that would undermine our existence
    as one united country,” the Governor warned as quoted by
    Sun.
    “So, I support that the zoning arrangement should be allowed
    to continue so that everybody can have a taste of the pudie.
    “I believe that the Igbo have a legitimate aspiration, but what
    makes their case bad is the threat they always subjected the
    country to through their agitation for Biafra.
    “Biafra is an unfortunate development in the past and it
    belongs to the past and people should not be rubbing that on
    our faces,” he added.
    He said Nigeria had passed the stage where somebody
    should be threatened, insisting that if the Igbo “want the rest
    of the country to trust them and support their presidential bid,
    they should stop this agitation and caution their children.”

    The Governor further noted that most of the people leading the
    agitation for Biafra were not even born at the time of the war
    that claimed millions of lives “and they do not know the cost
    of war and the psychological implications of war.”
    He said the Igbo must not “be reminding Nigerians of Biafra”
    but instead demand for the presidency, which, according to
    him, “they have the right to demand for it because they are
    legitimate Nigerians.
