Minority Leader of the Nigerian Senate and Former Governor of Akwa Ibom State, Godswill Akpabio has cautioned against the pro-Biafra struggle.
Speaking while receiving the members of the Akwa Ibom state House of Assembly led by its speaker, Aniekan Uko, who paid him a courtesy visit in the National Assembly in Abuja, the Senator aid for those who witnessed the civil war, this should be avoided.
Naij.com quoted the Governor;
“For those of us who witnessed the civil war, we should not be seen to be supporting this needless struggle because it is an ill wind that will blow no good, no matter your status or political affiliation.”
He stressed: “No matter the level of disaffection among different groups within the nation, there are better and lawful channels in which any aggrieved group or individuals can explore to get a redress instead of engaging in outright lawlessness. Let us all rise in unison to condemn any group that is bent on destroying the oneness of this country because our strength as a country lies in our unity.”
“Let us all shun all forms of divisiveness. President Muhammadu Buhari needs peace for sustainable development and this can only be achieved if he is focused.”
