Yesterday, the Delta State Government said that, the people of Delta State are not a part of Biafra.
Chief Festus Agas, the Secretary to Delta State Government (SSG), who reaffirmed their belief in one Nigeria said in a statement he made available to the public that, Delta State object in its totality the inclusion of the state in the proposed Biafra Republic.
The statement reads;
“we object in its totality, the inclusion of Delta State without our consent in the proposed Biafra Republic. This clarification has become necessary to avoid any confusion or misunderstanding regarding the status of Delta State in the renewed Biafra agitation.”
“while some communities in Delta state may have cultural affinity with the people of the South East , it is clearly a patent error for anybody or group to suggest or insinuate that Delta state or more specifically the Anioma people have been or are part of the South East that is supposed to make up the proposed Biafra Republic”.
