The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has embarked on reduction of graduate unemployment and infrastructure decay in the Southeast, South-South and parts of Northcentral through the establishment of small-scale hi-tech companies.
IPOB spokesman, Comrade Emma Powerful, said this in a statement on Friday.
He said that the hi-tech companies will focus on road and sewage maintenance as well as latest mechanised farming technology as practised in Israel.
He said in a matter of weeks, the pro-Biafra group will begin recruiting the first batch of graduates of Agricultural Engineering and Agro-Economics from specific states.
The statement said: “These small scale high-tech companies will take care of road and sewage maintenance while Agro companies will focus on the latest methods of mechanized farming as practiced in Israel.
“These initiatives is as a result of hard work and decisive diplomatic moves designed to position the day to day needs of ordinary Biafrans at heart of our mission.
“We have resolved to salvage what is left of the infrastructure in Biafraland to minimize the level of hardship resulting from years of misrule and mediocrity by a political class bereft of ideas.
“We shall work very hard to reduce the number of unemployed Biafran graduates rendered hopeless by the political arrangement in Nigeria.
“Therefore we appeal to all right thinking people both home and abroad to join hands in making sure this project is the resounding success we all want it to be.”
IPOB thanked individuals and groups that have so far made donations and pledges of huge plots of land towards the landmark projects, stressing that “IPOB is about making the lives of Biafran masses bearable in the climate of poverty driven economic strangulation and political servitude prior to the advent of Biafra and beyond.”
