Nigeria will break up if South South decides to join Biafra struggle —Gov Okowa

DELTA: Okowa’s aides join 5,000 PDP members in mass defection to APC

The Federal Republic of Nigeria will break up the very day the South-South region decides to join the struggle for the actualisation of Biafra Republic, so says Delta State governor, Ifeanyi Okowa.

“Nigeria will divide the very day the South-South agrees to join Biafra,” Governor Okowa declared at the Niger Delta Peace and Security Summit held in Koko, Warri North Local Government Area.

According to Okowa who was represented at the summit by his Executive Assistant of Orientation, Eugene Uzum, some regions in Nigeria feel oppressed and until the people in the South-South unite, they cannot move forward.

He noted that the, “Federal Character system and ethnics” in the country have been grossly mismanaged by our leaders.

Governor Okowa, who identified ethnicity as one of the biggest problems of Nigeria said, “Unless you are from a particular tribe in this country, you cannot secure a job. Unless you have one big man somewhere, you cannot get a job.

“Those who control the security apparatus are Hausas. A particular tribe runs the security apparatus.”

Okowa also said “hate speeches” are also part of the problems of Nigeria.

The governor, who lamented the alleged injustice in the country, said the crude oil in the South-South region is being used to develop every part of the country, stressing that, “This is denigration.”
