The Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige, has said members of the Indigenous People of Biafra cannot attack him outside Nigeria.
He said the secessionists would have a moral burden to attack him because he protected them and their interests when he was the governor of Anambra State
They knew I fed and protected them when I was in office as governor. I have said it several times that Biafra cannot be achieved the IPOB way
“The Igbo should stop shouting marginalisation. They should stand up and assert themselves to be counted. Nigeria belongs to all of us. “Equity favours the Igbo to produce the next president of the country, but they must work hard and position themselves for it. “We should stop political sentiments. Politicians don’t give power based on sentiment and emotion. President Muhammadu Buhari has said he is favourable to an Igbo president.
We must support him and associate with the APC. Nobody will give you president of Nigeria in your bedroom.”
