. Promises free oil to Oduduwa , Arewa, other West African neighbours
By Steve Oko
Leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi kanu, has said that the Biafra republic when realised, would allow 100% resource control for the federating nations and units.
Kanu who made the declaration on a live broadcast in Jerusalem also allayed the fears of those who think Biafra’s exit from Nigeria would throw Nigeria into oil scarcity.
He promised to supply Biafran oil free of charge to the Youruba nation, Hausa /Fulani as well as other neighbouring countries in the West African sub-region in the spirit of brotherhood.
Kanu said that no ethnic dominance or marginalisation of any nation in Biafra, adding that the new republic will also maintain a healthy relationship with its African neighbours.
He assured the various nations in the territory under Biafra that they would have total control of the resources within their domain unlike the situation in the present Nigeria where resources are centrally controlled.
His words : “Biafra will be a confederation of ethnic nations, where each nation will be allowed to control 100% of their resources.
“I know that our brothers in Yorubaland are worried about their survival without oil revenue from Biafraland and rightly so.
” I want to assure them tonight that oil and gas will be piped free to Yorubaland for eternity to help them grow their economy.
“The same gesture will be extended to Hausa Fulani and every other part of Nigeria because I know that without oil, survival will be almost impossible in the north. “
