Sovereign Biafra State is Not Realisable Now- Okorocha

Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, has said a sovereign state of Biafra was a misplaced priority, stressing the agitation as championed by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) was out of place, at least for now.
Okorocha, who spoke on Wednesday when he in company of other members of the Progressives Governors’ Forum visited the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) and victims of the recent Benue flood disaster in Benue State, emphasised that no reasonable Igbo man was backing the agitation.
Okorocha used the opportunity of the visit to personally donate N10m to the victims.
He said: “I have always said that IPOB is an agitation group, but the captioning is bad when you talk of sovereignty within a sovereign nation and also talking of secession.
He said: “Let me assure you that no Igbo person or man is in support of secession and people must see this as a childish act. We must stand up to address it before it becomes a national problem.
“As for us leaders in that area, it will be insane for anyone to think that the IPOB leader will ask us to follow him to seek secession.
“So Nigerians must learn to address it specifically. If you are addressing IPOB you should be specific and not to address it as if it is an Igbo affair.”
