“This is not the time to pop champagne but a time for conscious reflection on the road we have passed, where we are and where we intend to be in the years ahead.

“As Igbos, we must stop listening to people who says Biafra is possible. If we want Biafra we must first ensure that referendum is included in the constitutional review. “Nigeria should be thinking of annexing other Africa country rather than dividing it

China is 2 billion and not talking about secession. But Nigeria with less than 200 million populace is talking secession.”
