Ohaneze NdiIgbo has advised Igbos to forget Biafra and rather push for restructuring.
President General of the pan Igbo group, John Nwodo stated this while speaking at the 3rd inauguration of the state and local government executives of the Abia State chapter of Ohaneze Ndi Igbo.
He said realizing Biafra was a tall order which would not be in the general interest of the Igbo in their socio economic and political relationships with other Nigerians.
“We should forget Biafra and insist on restructuring. We must seek for peaceful ways of resolving the issues,” Nwodo said.
Nwodo also urged members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to tone down their words, as hate speeches would not resolve any problem.
He said the proscription of the activities of IPOB by the South-East governors prevented bloodshed.
