As pro-Biafrans continue to say that the Nigerian government is discriminating and marginalising them and demand a sovereign Biafran nation, Governor Hope Uzodimma of Imo State has warned Igbo people not to resort to war.
Newsbreak.ng reports that the governor made the remark on Saturday at a maiden lecture series organised in honour of elder statesman, Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu by the Correspondents’ Chapel of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Imo Council, in Owerri.
“Ndigbo believes in live and let live. There is no better way to assert our unity,” Uzodimma said.
“We must, therefore, not resort to war in a bid to fight marginalisation. We must eschew violence, and embrace peace and unity.
“We may have our flaws as a race but a man cannot live in a land he loathes and remain progressive in his business and other endeavours.
“We love Nigeria dearly and this is without a doubt.”
