Metro Gani Adams, OPC Leader Reacts to the Clamour For Biafra State

#1
The National President of the Oodua People’s Congress, Chief Gani Adams, has reacted that the Federal Government must hold talks with the Movement for the Actualisation of Sovereign State of Biafra and others agitating for Biafra for peace to reign.

According to Adams, it is only through dialogue that the agitators can be made to drop the idea of a Biafra state; as the use of force is incapable of guaranteeing the unity of the country.

The OPC leader spoke about the agitation and the clash between the Nigerian Army and the Islamic Movement of Nigeria in Osogbo after he was honoured as a culture ambassador by the Nigeria Union of Journalists Correspondents Chapel, Osun State.

He said, “I will just say that they (Biafra agitators) are entitled to their own self-determination. Look, there is a law in Africa that recognises right to self-determination. Also, there is a law in United Nations that recognises right to self-determination. There is a country in the United Nations that has a population of not up to 50,000 and their flag is at the United Nations.

Adams condemned the killing of members of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria by soldiers in Zaria.
