The senator representing Kaduna North Senatorial zone, Kaduna state, Senator Shehu Sani, alleged that the new agitation for the sovereign state of Biafra was being sponsored by pro-Jonathan forces who lost the 2015 general elections.
According to him, their aim is to destroy the administration of President Mohammadu Buhari by igniting a national conflict , chaos and confusion in the country.
Sani, who spoke on Sunday when a youth group from southern Kaduna paid him a courtesy call in his office in Kaduna, described the renewed agitation for Biafra as misguided and ill conceived.
“The Biafra agitation is a new attempt to destroy the Muhammadu Buhari administration and to ignite a national conflict and cause chaos, pandemonium, confusion in the country.
“I see it as a plan B action of the pro-Jonathan forces who lost election in the 2015 national elections. I will also say that the agitation is not reflective of the generality of the interest of the Igbo people of the south-east,” Sani said.
According to him, since after the Nigerian civil war which ended in 1970, the Igbos have made tremendous progress in business, entrepreneurship, academics, politics and very sphere of life, stressing that their future is better guaranteed and sustained within a united Nigeria.
