David Umahi, the Ebonyi State Governor, has reportedly made it known that Ebonyi State will never be part of Biafra.
The governor reportedly disclosed this at the Ecumenical Centre, Abakaliki, on Thursday.
According to him, “Let nobody be afraid of the Presidency of an Igbo man. The Igbo man is a builder and not a destroyer. There is no Igbo man that will be the President of this country and would like to divide or destroy it because we have investments everywhere.”
He noted “First and foremost, I have been saying it. If anybody tells you about Biafra, Ebonyi State will never be part of Biafra. We are not Biafra.”
He added, “We have been so oppressed and now we are finding our feet and you want us to go back. We will not. We will not.”
The Governor remarked, “Some enemies of the South-East say if we become President we will divide the country. How will we divide the country? We have investments everywhere.”
