To Resolve Biafra Agitation We Must Go Back To ‘1963 Republican Constitution’ – Gani Adams

The National Coordinator of the Oodua Peoples Congres  (OPC), Otunba Gani Adams has revealed that the current agitation for the republic of Biafra by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), can only be resolved through the consideration of the1963 Republican constitution.

Adams who made this assertion during an interview with ‘The Sun newspaper, stressed that the Yorubas are solidly behind the Igbo people in the struggle for their own country called Biafra.
Speaking further, the OPC national coordinator noted that he would be that last person to go against the agitation of pro-Biafra groups. Giving reason for his decision, Adams stressed that the Igbos are now more sophisticated than in 1967-1970, calling on Nigeria to let them go.

 According to him, “I would be the last person that would ask the Igbo people to stop the agitation for the Republic of Biafra. It is their right for self-determination. “Look at the population of the Igbo people now and they are the most vibrant and widely travelled Nigerians. ‘When people are saying that they would crush the Igbo people the way they crushed them in 1967, I always laugh at them. “The people you have now are not the Igbo of 1967 to 1970. “We have a new Igbo society that is more organized and sophisticated.

 “I was one of those that supported the release of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra(IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu. “The crackdown on IPOB would not help matters because if they are determined for liberation, you cannot stop them no matter the force you use against them.

“So, I believe that the only way to resolves all these agitations is to go back to the Republican Constitution of 1963,” the OPC national coordinator opined.
