Bauchi State Governor and presidential aspirant of the People Democratic Party, PDP, Bala Mohammed, said it would be difficult for
the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, to achieve self-determination in Nigeria because of the proportion of Igbos’ investment in the country.
The former FCT minister, Mohammed stated this while wooing party’s delegates in Anambra State on Friday.
Mohammed, who downplayed the possibility of a Biafra Republic said; “When I was minister of Federal Capital Territory, the Igbo capital investment in Abuja was over 50 percent.
“That is the true position, not only in Abuja, but in Kano, Lagos, Kaduna and other states. So, we are interrelated and connected as a people in Nigeria.
“We need to stabilise that symbiotic bond that binds us together. When IPOB is talking about self determination and self actualization, for where? When you owe over half of the country.
“God may not give you everything. He has given something to you. That is the truth. Because of this, I am calling for this unity and fraternity among us. If the Igbo youth understand this, they will now know the need for peace and unity in the country.”
