A Presidential aspirant of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in 2019, Chief Charles Udeogaranya, has declared that with the current happenings in the country, Ndigbo Republic may emerge instead of Biafra.
Udeogaranya said that the South-East has been sidelined to the extent that they may have no option than to emerge as one and protect their interest as a people.
He said: “This is not at prejudice to all our Nigerian brothers and sisters..The Ndigbo Republic will not drag anyone along as in Biafra but purely based on Willink minorities Commission map of Nigeria (1957-1958). This will not be necessary if the political power brokers do the right thing and ensure that the South-East produces the 2023 Presidency that is long overdue.
“Days of slavery are long gone and we must start creating a better life for all Nigerians. Japan has no oil but look how wonderfully they made their country by delving into so many areas of survival. I have confidence that Ndigbo will impress and organise Nigeria in such a way that even Northern Nigeria will record an unprecedented enormous success.
“Let me also point this out that Northerners are not lazy and are more sincere than most other ethnic nationalities in Nigeria. This was the same template that China has and with the right leadership was achieved.
