It is quite unfortunate that many Igbos have chosen to join the agitations for Biafra nation instead of believing in the sovereignty of Nigeria as a great nation. The oppositions offered by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in Nigerian political affairs have become a major issue of interest in recent times. As a result of this, the South Eastern region of the country which was previously deemed to be very peaceful, have become a place of high criminality and insecurity. Although, it is quite relieving that the governors of South East are seriously at work to bring back the region to its normal peaceful state.
However, here are two Igbo politicians among others who have overtly kicked against the secession of Igbos and made clarion calls for Igbos to embrace unity and peaceful coexistence in Nigeria. These two South East (SE) politicians have made it clear to Igbos that part of the reasons why they won't achieve Biafra is this: many Igbos across the country have lots of investments that cannot be left behind.
GOVERNOR DAVE UMAHI
Sometime ago, while Dave Umahi was advising Igbos to forget the idea of Biafra and embrace unity, he vividly exposed the fact that the people of the South East have lots of investments in every part of the nation. Hence, he noted that if Igbos should continue with their Biafra madness and separate from Nigeria, they will lose their huge investments. On this basis, he stated that it won't be an advantage for them to leave their investments and walk away. This is why Umahi has been counted as one of the Igbo politicians who have noted that Biafra won't come because Igbos cannot leave their investments.
FORMER SENATE PRESIDENT KEN NNAMANI
Recently, Ken Nnamani, the Igbo politician who occupied the seat of the Senate President from 2005 to 2007, overtly noted in one of his recent statements that Igbos won't get Biafra because they have lots of investments which they cannot leave behind. He made mention of Banana Island and Victoria Island in Lagos, stating that Igbos own lots of skyscrapers in these places & also lots of hotels in Abuja. From this viewpoint, he made it clear that these investments cannot be moved, thereby encouraging Igbos to embrace a united Nigeria.
In conclusion, it is imperative at this time for Igbos to consider there huge investments across Nigeria and have a rethink on Biafra agitation.
