|‘you Can’t Be More Biafran Than Ojukwu Who Abandoned Struggle’ Ben Apugo by udeagbalaC(m): 8:56pm On Dec 12, 2015|
Chief Ben Apugo was a member of the Board of Trustees (BoT) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the former ruling party at the centre.
In this interview, Apugo speaks on why he, alongside Senate President Bukola Saraki, former Governor Nyako of Adamawa State, and Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso, quit the PDP. He also speaks on the fate of the APC in the South-East and the pro-Biafra quest by some Igbo elements, among other issues.
Pro-Biafra agitators have been protesting across the South-East and some parts of the South-South. Are you in support of their agitation?
The civil war ended a long ago time and we are all Nigerians. No reasonable human being should come out today to talk about Biafra. Our people have to speak up and make our children understand the situation of things. Those things they should be protesting for are employment, roads, water, airports and other amenities that are lacking in the zone. If they are agitating for these things, they should not block roads; they should talk to the government of the states in the South-East, not the Federal Government.
These people you are talking about are small boys whose mothers were not even born during the civil war. So, what I am saying is that the governors of the South-East should enlighten the youths and make them know that there is nothing like Biafra today. People should not be using Biafra as a tool for causing confusion and defrauding uninformed people.
The Federal Government should not be looking at the South-East, especially Umuahia, since they said their leader,Nnamdi Kanu, is from here, as not supporting Buhari. Buhari did not create any problem in the South-East. All the while, (former President Goodluck) Jonathan was there, they should have gone to demonstrate about Biafra. Buhari will tackle all the problems we are facing now, our former governors did not perform, and they did not create avenues for employment, no empowerment. My advice to our children is that they should forget about hoping against hope. We have cancelled Biafra.
Let them look for the betterment of this country and themselves. They should avoid this protest because it will not yield any fruit. Their leaders will not fight more than Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu and Joe Effiong, who despite their efforts, Biafra failed at the end.

The man has made his own observation. And I believe it deserves a good hearing.
If the major proponent of Biafra could abandon the struggle at the end of the day, when he saw there was no hope of making it a reality anymore, why are the youths of today who were not even born during the war, now romanticising the idea of resurrecting Biafra? Is it only due to lack of amenities in Igboland?
Is there any part of Nigeria that has not suffered from underdevelopment? Is there any part of this country that has not experienced poor infrastructure? Even the few states that appear to have some semblance of infrastructure, have realised that many of those structures are overstretched, decaying and dying in installments!

The Biafran military high command had made a decision to surrender, and Ikemba Ojukwu handed over to his second in command and left the country! So what did he 'abandon'? Or you wanted him to remain in Nigeria so those evil Nigerian soldiers -that see nothing wrong in slaughtering the entire male youths of a village, and who delight in shooting at any and everything that moves- could get their blood-stained hands on him?
