The composer of Biafra Anthem, All Hail Biafra, Chief Charles Okereke, has weighed in on the renewed agitation for an independent Biafra championed by leader of the Indigenious People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.
In his words;
“The Biafra agitators should realize they should be lawful till Biafra comes,” he told journalists in Umuahia weekend.
“I have no issues with the way agitators like IPOB are going about their agitation but I feel that discussing it through seeking opinion is better.
“For me, I don’t think that the UN will come to conduct referendum with the approval of the Federal Government and the National Assembly.
‘Even if they approve it, members of the National Assembly will have to talk to the people they represent.
“Our leaders will not be interested because they may lose. To me, I have a different way to correct things like bad governance, and that is by being involved in elections to elect good leaders.”
Okereke however said that he was not involved in Biafran activities.
