A Pentecostal cleric, Bishop Abraham Udeh of Mount Zion Faith Global Liberation Ministries Inc Nnewi, on Wednesday said what the Igbos wanted was Biafra and not presidency.
Udeh made the disclosure in Nnewi while reeling out prophecies on Biafra’s actualization which he alleged was being frustrated by the Hausa-Fulani oligarchy.
He urged the Igbos to rise up and embrace the pursuit of Biafra actualization irrespective of their calling or social status.
He said, “The Igbo rejected the option of a president of Igbo extraction and rather faced the actualization of Sovereign State of Biafran with one mind.
“I saw in the spiritual realm an Hausa-Fulani agenda to allow an Igbo man to be elected president in 2023 only to be subjected to the control of the North.
“I also saw people from the Arab countries in collaboration with Moslems in Nigeria working against the actualization of Biafra in the spiritual realm, and hardening the hearts of prominent Igbo leaders not to have interest in Biafran struggle.”
The cleric insisted that he would never subscribe to violence in order to achieve Biafra in view of lives lost during the 30-month civil war.
He, however, regretted that agitations for freedom had been left in the hands of people in the lower cadre in society while the middle and upper classes who believed they were comfortable had remained silent.
“Most people in the religious circle are not talking. Our politicians are not talking. We need this freedom now,” he posited.
