Igbos don’t want Biafra! – Iwuanyanwu reveals what they are really after

- Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu advised President Buhari to speed up Nnamdi Kanu's trial

- He noted that his detention is turing him into a hero

- The politician said Igbos only want to be president and not secede
Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu has revealed that the Igbo people are not really agitating for secession but actually desire to produce the country’s president

The detention of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) has sparked the agitation for an independent Biafra state but Iwuanyanwu believes that what the Igbos actually want is to have a president from the region.

The Punch reports that the businessman and politician said this on Friday, November 25 at the National Executive Council meeting of the Nigerian Union of journalists in Owerri, the Imo state capital.

Iwuanyanwu noted that the continued detention of Kanu was turning him into a hero and advised President Muhammadu Buhari to speed up his court trial.

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

The statesman also lashed out at Niger Delta militants for blowing-up oil and gas pipelines.

He described their act as stupidity capable of hindering the progress in the region and urged Buhari to quickly summon a meeting of elders in the country in order to find a permanent solution to the problem of insurgency and militancy.

Governor Rochas Okorocha also noted that the unity of Nigeria was non-negotiable.

He said: “I see myself as an unusual Nigerian. While Igbo parents gave birth to me, I was born in the North, went to school there and even married in the North there. I was empowered by the West. For me, there is no better place to call our own than Nigeria. We must do everything possible to protect the country from those who seek its downfall.”
