Revealed! ‘Pro Biafran protests sponsored by Jonathan’s associates’- says Igbo group

Those who served in the administration of former President, Goodluck Jonathan, have been fingered as being responsible for the recent wave of pro-Biafran protests.
A pan-Igbo group, The Igbo Conscience, said the claim can be backed by the fact that the momentum and frequency of the protests increased right after Jonathan was defeated by President Muhammadu Buhari, at the last election.
Leader of the group, Monday Ubani, made the allegation at a news conference in Lagos on Wednesday, November 18.

According to Ubani, several Igbo politicians were given juicy appointments dueing the administration of Jonathan, yet failed to improve the standard of living of their people.
“As recently as six months ago, the Igbo occupied and boasted of occupying prime positions in the country during the six years of President Jonathan’s rule. Why is it that immediately after the defeat of the past regime in March, the cries of Igbo marginalisation rose to high heavens with slanderous allegations against the President-elect?
“What were the merits the Ndigbo derived from this much-vaunted strategic placing in critical positions for six years? Should the Igbo be crying of marginalisation just a few months after sitting on the upper echelons of the country’s political and economic spheres if these political beneficiaries benefitted the Ndigbo with their positions?
“Should roads and other facilities in the South-East be as dilapidated as they are today if we benefitted from these former office holders, some of whom are sponsoring the present agitations?”
 Furthermore, Ubani said the late leader of the defunct Republic of Biafra, Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu, never identified with the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra, because of a difference in philosophy.
Ubani added that Nnamdi Kanu, Director of Radio Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, was a phony individual, fighting a selfish cause.
