Rising from its consultative strategic closed door meeting in Owerri weekend, the leadership of the Coalition of pro-Biafra groups and the Alaigbo Development Foundation (ADF) critically examined the current challenges of Ndigbo in Nigeria today.
The meeting also considered the need to explore and cement what it saw as “the much needed relationship with the leadership of Pro Biafra groups and other Igbo leaders.
“The need to draw the attention and reassurance of other anti self determination elements in Igbo society into driving their political ships towards the yearnings and desires of Ndigbo.”
Though details of the meeting was not made public, the leader of the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra(MASSOB), Uchenna Madu confided in The Oracle.
He said that it “also harped on the need for pro-Biafra and self determination leadership heads and figures to swallow their individual prides/egos and establish a spirited and brotherly working relationship among themselves for the overall interest of our people”.
He noted that generally the meeting centered mostly on the current political, religious, cultural and economic challenges in Igbo land including the agitation and clamour for Biafra State actualization.
The representatives of the Coalition of pro Biafra groups, he added, restated their earlier submission to work and collaborate with every Igbo progressive and Biafranized group and movement including ADF for the reestablishment of the legendary Igbo dignity as a people.
Other matters of prime importance to Ndigbo that were discussed included the conscious securing of Igbo land, 2019 general election and other diplomatic contacts.
