Joe Igbokwe opposes Biafra, demands additional South-East state
An All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain, Joe Igbokwe has opposed Biafra agitation.
The Special Adviser on Drainage and Water Resources to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, insisted that separation is not the answer.
He, in spite of that, urged the Feferal Government to create one more state in the South-East.
In a chat with BBC News Pidgin, Igbokwe said the Igbos have married and made friends with people from across Nigeria.
“Some have mothers that are Igbos, and fathers Hausa. There have been inter-ethnic relationships for years.
“The only thing I want the federal government to do is the creation of additional state in the South-East. I have been advocating this.
“We will have 6 governors, more Senators, House of Representatives members, State of Assembly, state capital, university, take-off funds, more local governments.
“So many things will come up. 12,000 jobs will be created created immediately as there will be instant development in the zone”, Igbokwe said.
