Senator Shehu Sani, believes that the agitators of the Movement for the Actualisation of Sovereign State of Biafra, working for former President Goodluck Jonathan.
Sani, who represents Kaduna Central Senatorial District at the National Assembly, said on Monday, that the new Biafra agitators were carrying out the ‘Plan B’ of Pro-Jonathan loyalists.
He said the Biafra forces were upset that Jonathan was defeated at the 2015 presidential election.
According to the activist turned politician, the intention of the Biafra agitators is to destabilise the Muhammadu Buhari-led APC administration.
Sani said the new agitation was misguided, ill-conceived and ill-fated but an ill-wind that would blow no one any good, while also noting that it was not the true reflection of the Igbo or the South-East people.
The Senator said activities of the Biafran group is a hopeless cause by people in search of attention.
“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. Nigeria must be patient enough with the President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.”
