We call on all foreign missions in Nigeria to extend such gestures to all freedom fighters and proponents of self determination groups in the country, as it will help to end reckless (state)sponsored violence against biafra agitators, and bring FG to deploy peaceful mechanisms to ensure that the remote causes of biafra agitation are properly addressed, like issues of FG , following the strict adherence to the principles of Federal character in appointments, promotion of rule of law, equal opportunity and distribution of National wealth to all the zones without nepotistic tendencies coming into play.
This is the best time, Federal authorities should address the marginalization of Southeast and compensations of the zones should be inevitable with huge projects.
