Some of the Names in the attendance were the former governor of Anambra State who was the Vice Presidential candidate of PDP in the 2019 Presidential elections.
Senator Abaribe who is currently a principal officer in the ninth assembly (minority Leader of the Senate) and othe senior citizens in Igbo Land.
Recalled that the Former President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, who was also the deputy national leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Dr. Dozie Ikedife, some years ago told President Muhammadu Buhari to forget the thought of wishing Biafra away saying that Igbo people would never forget Biafra.
Also, Ikedife, who was a strong supporter of President Buhari during the electioneering campaigns, stressed that nothing would make Igbo to abandon the Biafra struggle.
His words: “How can we forget Biafra when the life of every Igbo man was reduced to be worth only 20 pounds, and some of us refused to collect our own till date?
“How can we forget Biafra when the Reconciliation, Rehabilitation and Reintegration which was declared after the war was never implemented?
He went further to expressed his anger and optimism on the actualization of Biafra.
“How can we forget Biafra when for 30 months our territory was landlocked and we watched our children die of starvation? Tell us how we can forget Biafra? Tell President Buhari that we will never forget Biafra. Never!
“Even if all the people that experienced the war died, Biafra would never be forgotten as the story would always be told from generation to generation.”
He called on the Nigerian government to do the needful and stop delaying the future of others, call for referendum and see if it will work or not.
