- Olisa Agbakoba, a prominent Nigerian lawyer and former president of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), has spoken on Biafra agitation in southeast
- Agbakoba said he will not glorify Nnamdi kanu, the leader of the Independent people of Biafra (IPOB) over his agitation
- He also said Kanu's strong desire for Igbo nation is legitimate but his approach is wrong
Olisa Agbakoba, a prominent Nigerian lawyer and former president of the Nigerian Bar Association, said Biafra is not viable based on his experience as a Biafran soldier.
Agbakoba said Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Independent people of Biafra (IPOB) does not have experience about war.
He noted that he is aware of Kanu’s call for Biafra nation as a legitimate aspiration but the leader of IPOB did not make the call in a right way.
He said: ''The problem of Nigeria is marginalisation. There are about 65 million unemployed youths in the country. Therefore, they are angry. As a president, I will recognise it. I will try turn IPOB issue to something that is recongnised.
''I will not glorify Kanu. I will tell him that he is wrong with his approach. However, both southeast governors and the Igbo politician should be blamed because they are worst among all Nigerian politicians.
''That is what Nnamdi is using as an opportunity. His called for Biafra nation is a legitimate aspiration but he does make the call in a right way.
''The issue of restructuring is a bit confusing. Nigerians have to understand the obstacles against the restructuring.''
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had reported that Agbakoba noted that the word ‘restructuring’ was first used by civil societies in 1979, and throughout the decades since it was uttered.
