A new group known as the Biafran Independence Movement (BIM) has called on South-east Governors who are not performing to vacate office.

BIM also alleged that most of the projects the Governors claim to have carried out in the media, are not in existence.

According to the Biafra Zonal Information Director, Anselm Ogbonna, the Governors have not added value to the lives of people.

He said “l really mean my word, they should vacate their political offices now because they have lost focus. They have fed the citizens with the dividend of lies instead of dividend of democracy. Workers’ salaries are being paid over the radios and on the pages of newspapers; not in the offices.

“Pensioners who worked with their blood to uphold the integrity of Nigeria are neglected; the politicians abandoned their pension payment. This has resulted in their death on a daily basis. Youth empowerments to these leaders of tomorrow are tricycles and motorcycles on hire purchase. Behind them, they will give out contracts to their loyalists to hunt the Okada riders and Keke NAPEP operators who would pay a huge amount of money. This makes it difficult for them to be free from the Okada and Keke NAPEP hire purchases they have collected. In other words, they are slaves to this contract. They are slaves in order to find their daily bread.”

Adding that “Majority of these politicians have tactically supported the grazing bill because they have cattle which these Fulani are raring for them. The worst of it all is that these Fulani are raping women of those communities at gunpoint. I want to tell them that if such continues in any of the communities in Igbo land, we must hold these politicians responsible.”

Meanwhile, Apostle Johnson Suleman, the Senior pastor and General Overseer of Omega Fire Ministry has advised Nigerians from the East to put an end to the agitation for the Republic of Biafra, saying it is dead and buried.
