Elder statesman and a former President General of Ohanaeze, Dozie Ikedife has replied the British Government over its recent statement that Nigeria remains indivisible.
He declared that no one can stop the actualisation of the Republic of Biafra.
Ikedife was reacting to a recent statement credited to the British High Commissioner to Nigeria Paul Arkwright; where he affirmed that the United Kingdom was behind one and indivisible Nigeria.
“The strength of Nigeria is not in her money or oil but her greatest asset remains her well-endowed and resourceful people,” Arkwright had said.
Reacting however, the former Ohanaeze leader said Arkwright was only entitled to his opinion and such would not deter his people from achieving their aim.
He said, “such a statement or position is not a surprise because when people from the Southeast were being killed in some parts of Nigeria, and were virtually pushed out of Nigeria, and when they declared Republic of Biafra, as their own and home, the British government helped to suppress that by supporting Nigeria along with one or two European countries.
“No, it will only heighten our resolve to achieve what we set out to achieve, knowing that they are people or nations that oppose it for selfish reasons.”
