Days after false reports circulated on social media that the
IPOB leader has dropped his agitation for the restoration of
the old Biafra Republic from Nigeria, Nnamdi Kanu has
debunked the claims.
Kanu made this known when he met with representatives
from two groups, ie ECA leader, Chief Maria Okwor, and IYM
founder, Evangelist Eliot Uko.
“I desire Biafra. I want Biafra. I want nothing
else other than Biafra. I will not settle for
anything else other than Biafra.
“That was what I was born to do and that is
what I will do till the day Biafra will come,
that we may live as free men on this very
earth as the Most High God, Chukwu Okike
Abiama, ordained it.
“I have chosen the option that we must be
free as a people, that we must be liberated
as a race and that we must have every
God-given freedom due to us.
“I would not want to go to heaven to
experience it (freedom). I want to experience
“I thank all of you that worked very hard,
especially the Igbo Youth Movement, I must
be specific, and the Eastern Consultative
Assembly, and all the market men, market
women, those that closed their shops to
see us and all those who made efforts to
ensure that I was not consumed.
“I thank all of you, those who contributed to
my being here today, because without your
pressure, I don’t think I will be here.
“However, the work is not done yet, we need
to finish it.”
