The All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), on Tuesday, said that the ongoing agitation for secession of eastern Nigeria by Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) was caused by frustration over injustices in Nigeria.

This was revealed by the national chairman of APGA, Victor Oye, who spoke with journalist at the NUJ Press Centre, Awka.

Oye insisted that the agitation will end if the obvious imbalance and marginalization of Igbo people were properly dealt with.

He said, “The Igbo man does not believe in destruction. They suffered so much during the Nigeria civil war and they have not recovered from effects of that war. They believe in the unity of Nigeria, but the inequitable distribution of amenities, which is not in their favour, is what is driving the agitation. Once they are properly recognized and given a sense of belonging in the country, the whole world will see that Igbo people love Nigeria.

“If they are given good roads, jobs and treated fairly and equitably in the distribution of appointments, there would not be any agitation and this is certain. When the people drive on the dilapidated Onitsha – Enugu road, Oba – Nnewi – Okigwe road, Aba – Port Harcourt road, Owerri – Port Harcourt road, Enugu – Umuahia – Aba road which are all federal roads and watch the way appointments are being made in the country, naturally they should be agitated.”

He dismissed insinuation that there is a rift between former governor of Anambra state, Peter Obi, and his successor, Willie Obiano.

“Obiano and Obi are the same. It is the political turncoats that are making the situation look as if there is a rift between them. Obi laid a solid foundation for the development of the state and Obiano has continued to build the structures. As far as we are concerned, there is no rift between the two great sons of this state.”
