General of apex Igbo Socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief John Nnia, has revealed his reasons why he is not against the agitation for Biafra by Igbo youths.

Nwodo yesterday, while addressing Ndigbo in Lagos at the practice pitch of the National Stadium stated that Igbos are truly marginalized in Nigeria.

Recalling how he lost his best friend at the war front during the Nigeria-Biafra war, how more than two million Igbo lost their lives and how many dreams were aborted, Nwodo said as a leader he would not fold his arms and watch his people suffer such destruction again.

Nwodo said he is not against the agitation for Biafra self determination and cries of the Indigenous
People of Biafra, IPOB because the Igbo are truly marginalised and oppressed in Nigeria.

However, he said is opposed to the methodology of the agitators because it cannot work in Nigeria as currently constituted.

The only way out, he argued, is restructuring and enthronement of fiscal federalism which will allow the states to control their resources, handle issues like police, education, health, mineral resources, etc while the Federal Government handle functions like immigration, customs, central banking, aviation and external affairs.
