Nwodo reveals only way Biafra could be achieved


President-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, John Nnia Nwodo has said that Biafra would not come by fighting, quarreling, name calling or insulting others.

Nwodo said this in Enugu yesterday at a lecture series organised by the Student Affairs Department of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, UNN, with the theme: “Excellence in Character and Learning as a tool for Restoration of the Dignity of Man.”

Nwodo said that for Biafra to be actualised, it has to by ‘political diplomacy.’

The Ohanaeze chieftain who was the chairman of the first excellence lecture series delivered by erudite scholar cum politician, Prof. Pat Utomi, opined that things could be changed through the ballot box and urged all and sundry to participate in the electoral process.

Nwodo said in part, ”we cannot get Biafra by fighting and insulting people. We cannot get restructuring by shouting, we can get it through political diplomacy. I must tell you the truth.”

Nwodo advised the student and management of the University’s College of Medicine to use the knowledge they acquired to effect changes in the society.
