Our mandate is to realise an Igbo Presidency, not to actualize the Sovereign State of Biafra – Ohanaeze Ndigbo

Ohanaeze Ndigbo, the apex Igbo socio-political organization, has stated that its mandate was not to actualize the sovereignty of Biafra, but to realize an Igbo Presidency.  

Chief Damian Okeke-Ogene, the President of Ohanaeze Ndigbo in Anambra State, made the statement at the end of a meeting in Awka, the capital of Anambra.

“We are pursuing Igbo presidency because the executive of Ohanaeze, led by Chief Nnia Nwodo, has the mandate of Ndigbo to negotiate the Igbo position in Nigeria.

“He wasn’t given a mandate for the Sovereign State of Biafra. That’s why we are saying, give us what is due for us and Nigeria’s president of Igbo extraction is what we are looking for,” he said.

Okeke-Ogene further commended the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) for deregistration of a factional Ohanaeze group.
