The new proclamation by ex-militant leader, Asari Dokubo has moved the Biafra agitation for a new state.
The ex-warlord has dared the Federal Government to constitute a Biafran government.
Dokubo has on Sunday, declared that he is the leader of the new Biafra defacto Customary Government (BCG), The sun reports.
The Head of Information and Communication of the customary government, Uche Mefor, announced that George Onyibe will be Secretary to the government, while Emeka Esiri will be in charge of the legal matters.
In a statement, Mefor said the reason for the new government is due to the marginalization and injustice the Igbo are facing in the various zones of the country.
Dokubo promised that the defacto administration will tackle all the insecurity challenges faced by the Igbo and make the life of the people of the region improve.
Dokubo said he hesitated a little, “but I thank God that it’s time for us to do our duty and our service to the motherland, I have accepted this role. I have dedicated my life a hundred percent to play this role”.
“I want to call on our brother, George Onyibe to come on board to join as the secretary of the de facto customary government of the State of Biafra. He will take care of the administrative, day-to-day administration of the Biafra State. I also call on our brother Emeka Emeka Esiri to take care of the legal needs of this nascent government.
“My brothers and sisters, the four of us will kick start the process, others will come on board. We want volunteers who are committed, we want volunteers because there is nothing anymore. We are the people who have volunteered to salvage ourselves and the rest of us.
“I also call on Biafrans in the various province of the Biafra nations in Aba, Abakiliki, Anang, Awka, Calabar, Degema, Eket, Enough, Nsukka, Ogoja, Oji River, Okigwe, Onitsha, Opobo, Orlu, Owerri, Port Harcourt, Umuahia, Uyo, and Yenegoa province.
“We are going to proceed to set up provincial structures of government starting with provincial assemblies and provincial governance and administrators. Let nobody be mistaking that Biafra will be worse than Nigeria.”.
Dokubo stated the areas the new government will focus on, especially in securing the lives and properties of its citizens.
He assured of investment in science and technology “to increase the scientific and technological discoveries, fabrications and making life easier for people through science and technology.”
Dokubo condemned the food transportation to the South that was stopped and said the new government will also focus on education and agriculture.
“You are all aware of the recent plot where they decided to stop food from the north. They failed woefully, they will continue to fail. The Government of Biafra States will look to make sure that we only eat what we can produce.
“Nobody can stop us. Nobody can blockade us as they did in the first war. We’re not going to fight any war with anybody, we’re walking to freedom. We will not shoot any gun with them, they will prepare their weapon but they will have nobody to kill with their weapon,” he added.
