The former governor of Abia State and now a chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress APC, Chief Orji Uzor Kalu says the actualization of a sovereign state of Biafra out of Nigeria as being conceived by IPOB and others is not feasible considering the present power dynamics in Nigeria and the global community.

Speaking while fielding questions in a no holds barred interactive media chat with Independent Newspaper Publishers from Owerri who paid him a courtesy call at his Igbere country home recently , the business mogul and Publisher of three national newspapers advised Ndi Igbo to concentrate on agitating for their fair share of the national cake instead.

The former governor said “ I have been with the late Ojukwu for many many years in this house before his death. ” “ Everything we discussed is what I can’t disclose in public but If the leader who pressed through this Biafra , went to contest for senate , went to contest for Nigerian President.

The unity of it, we should be able to define what our Biafra should be. Our Biafra should be good roads, equality in the nation, respect for human rights, atmosphere of respect for the rule of law and not killing people unnecessarily without the rule of law” he said.

He was emphatic that the idea of creating an independent Biafra state is no longer feasible. Igbos in his view should close their ranks and control the economy of the country. He continued “ I love Igbos more than the young youths, I for one has fought for the Igbos”

On the Presidency of Nigeria, he says the southeast has what it takes to produce Nigerian President and revealed his ambition to contest for the seat while affirming his support for incumbent President Buhari. For him, the greatest thing anybody can do is to give the Igbo the Presidency of Nigeria after Buhari.
