Governor Dave Umahi Tells IPOB That We Will Lose Our Investment In Nigeria If We Achieve Biafra.
Governor Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State has advised the people clamoring for secession in the Southeast to reconsider their decision since it would cause the zone to lose a massive amount of investments.
Umahi averred that the Southeast had invested so much in every part of Nigeria and so if they suddenly withdraw from Nigeria, they would be the biggest losers.
Umahi made his submission as he spoke on Channels Television. He advised the agitators to exercise some restraint in fighting for their freedom.
Umahi said: “Meanwhile, every elite in South-East is not desirous of Biafra, we don’t want Biafra; we want to be treated equally like other regions in Nigeria.
“So, this idea of Biafra is madness and we have said, ‘No’, we don’t want Biafra.
“If we go our separate ways, South-East people will lose a lot because we’ve invested a lot in every part of this nation. It is not to our advantage to leave our investment and walk away.”
