Iwuanyanwu advised President Buhari not to treat the IPOB leader as an important personality by keeping him in detention for months but to quickly try him in court.

Iwuanyanwu, who spoke on Friday at the National Executive Council meeting of the Nigerian Union of journalists in Owerri, the Imo state capital, said Igbo desired to produce the president of the country and not to separate from it.

He said, “Igbo people are majority tribe in Nigeria. We are everywhere and doing greatly.”

He urged the President to quickly summon a meeting of elders in the country in order to find a permanent solution to the Niger Delta problems and insurgency.

Iwuanyanwu also berated the Niger Delta militants for blowing up oil pipelines, describing the act as stupidity capable of hindering the progress in the region.


  1. I think its about time we all sit down together and decide collectively what we want as a people in our own best interests. Majority of the Igbo population are really not in support of Biafra but rather wants to experience a real sense of belonging as enjoyed by other major tribes in the Country.

    And one way to achieve that is by giving them a chance to also produce a president from that region. And in my own opinion I think that can only be fair.
