You are dreaming, South South can’t be part of Biafra – Edwin Clark tells IPOB
Elder statesman, Edwin Clark, has said that the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, is dreaming by including the South South states in map of Biafra.
The Nnamdi Kanu-led IPOB is agitating to break out the Old Eastern region from Nigeria to form Biafra Republic.
And Clark, who spoke in an interview with BBC Pidgin, said the IPOB is very unrealistic in their quest to break the South South and South East out of Nigeria, adding, “To me, IPOB is not pursuing the right thing.”

However, Clark maintained that Nnamdi Kanu is fighting a good fight, adding that the people of the South East are being neglected in Nigeria.
Clark explained that South East only has five states, whereas other regions in the country have six and seven respectively, “Based on what? Nobody knows.”
"For every appointment that is being made in this country, the Igbo are shortchanged. If Universities are being distributed per state, they will have five. Others will have six while North-West will have seven. This is despite the Igbo forming the third leg when this country was created.
"So, they have a good complaint, but going about it wrongly."
Speaking further, he said, "How can Delta be part of Biafra? In what way? Is Biafra older or bigger than Delta?
"How can Rivers State or Akwa Ibom become part of Biafra? They are dreaming for still thinking about the Eastern Region of those days."
