David Umahi, governor of Ebonyi, says the state “can never” be part of the proposed nation of Biafra.
The governor spoke on Thursday at an event organised for him in Abakaliki, the Ebonyi capital.
Umahi said the state will not secede from the country and join Biafra, adding that “we are better in a fair and equitable Nigeria”.
“Let nobody be afraid of the presidency of an Igbo man. The Igbo man is a builder and not a destroyer. There is no Igbo man that will be the president of this country and would like to divide or destroy it because we have investments everywhere,” he said.
