The Minister of information and culture Lai Mohammed in his recent statement have asked people of the South East to disregarded the claims that Federal government of Nigeria has no vision for the zone.
He further said in his statement that for South East group to enjoy being part of Nigeria, it only when they have aborted all activities seeking and agitating for Biafra.
In his statement he said:
“Igbos should stop saying that they are being neglected as part of Nigeria,
We neither neglect or have disregard for them it is the igbos that have disregarded Nigeria.
My master, president Muhammadu Buhari has targets and plans for igbos, in fact we are considering to hand over 2023 presidency to the South East, but it is only their Biafra agitation that is pending these plans.
Igbos has a lot to benefit if they abandon Biafra and consider us one Nigeria.
Their leader, Nnamdi Kanu does not know that he is preventing and seizing opportunities for the South East Group”.
