Do not Compare Boko Haram to Biafran Agitators – Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu


Former Abia State gover­nor, Dr Orji Uzor Kalu has called on those clamouring for Biafra Re­public to begin to see Nigeria as their country.

Kalu, however, said the ac­tivities of IPOB or MASSOB do not, in anyway, portend any threat to the unity of the country, stressing that Boko Haram was by far deadlier than the Biafran agitators.

The former Abia gover­nor made this remark while speaking in Minna, the Ni­ger State capital yesterday, shortly after paying a con­dolence visit to former gov­ernor of the state, Engineer Abdullahi Kure.

He said, “IPOB or MAS­SOB are armless people; they are different from Boko Ha­ram, so we will continue to appeal to Nigerians because there must be peace.

“What is happening in Southern Kaduna State is not right, people should stop killing their fellow Nigeri­ans, we should manage ru­mours very well.

“We are Nigerians, and we will remain in Nigeria because it is our place, we have no other place to go; there is no basis to compare the activities of Boko Haram insurgents with those of the Biafra agitators in the name of MASSOB and IPOB,” he said.

“None of those Biafra agi­tators carry arms; they are not violent. They don’t con­stitute any threat to the unity of Nigeria. Politicians should stop spreading rumours on social media to impress peo­ple. Nigeria is our home. We have no other country”, he added.

    those are the words of a wise man. a bird that mess its own nest is a sick one. China is 1.3billion in population and yet they are growing faster than any economy worldwide just because there is peace. Nigeria is the symbol of Black world, if Nigeria fails it means the the black nations has failed worldwide. if Nigeria is divided into 36 counties today it doesn’t guarantee economic success to any region. It’s only God Almighty that bless a nation not natural resources.
