President Muhammadu Buhari has received South East Group for Change led by Senator Ken Nnamani in Statehouse on May 31, 2016.
This came a day after the pro-Biafran activists commemorating the anniversary of the defunct Biafra Republic clashed with the Nigerian army in Onitsha.
Late General Ojukwu had led the secession of the old Eastern Region and declared the region the Republic of Biafra on May 30, 1967.
His attempt to break away from Nigeria led to the three-year Nigerian Civil War and Biafra’s defeat.
Meanwhile, in recent years, MASSOB and later IPOB have appeared, with its members attempting to revive the ghost of Biafra.
The 18-member delegation included mainly members of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC).
The delegation comprised the national auditor of APC, George Moghalu; former senators Ifeanyi Ararume and Osita Izunaso; former House of Representatives member, Sharon Ikeazor and former executive vice-chairman of Nigeria Communications Commission (NCC), Ernest Ndukwe.
Also in the team were the APC national vice-chairman (South East), Hon. Emma Eneukwu; member of the APC Board of Trustees, Chief Austin Edeze; Dr. Uzoma Obiyo and Chris Akomas.
Nnamani being asked by the journalists on whether the issue of Biafra came up for discussion during the meeting with: “No, no, not now.”
President Buhari has said that agitation for an independent state of Biafra “would not be tolerated” as Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the group is accused of treasonable felony.
Buhari insisted that his government would ensure continuous existence of Nigeria as a united entity.
