'Biafra agitators are working for Jonathan' - Senator alleges

Sani, who made the statement in Kaduna, said the ultimate plot was to destabilise President Muhammadu Buhari's government.

 

Senator Shehu Sani representing the Kaduna Central Senatorial District, on Monday, November 2, alleged that those pushing for the realisation of Biafra, under the umbrella of  the Movement for the Actualisation of Sovereign State of Biafra, are working for former President Goodluck Jonathan.

Sani, who made the statement in Kaduna, said the ultimate plot was to destabilise President Muhammadu Buhari's government.

He noted that the Biafra agitators were aggrieved that Jonathan lost the 2015 President election to Buhari.

He said, “The Igbos have made tremendous progress since after the civil war. They have recorded successes as businessmen, as entrepreneurs, as academics and as politicians.

“As long as we will realise the change agenda, entrench good governance and run an all-inclusive government, the Biafran agitation will naturally fizzle out.

“Nigerians must be patient enough with the President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.”

Sani affirmed that the future of Igbo people was better guaranteed within a united Nigeria.
