The Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, representing Delta Central, has responded to the Biafra agitation headed by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), says that Urhobo was never part of Biafra.
Speaking in an interview extracted on facebook, Sen. Ovie stated that anyone who feels marginalised has the right to agitate, so long the country is not a perfect one, everybody should strive to correct those imperfections.
In his words “No one is saying that the Igbo do not have the right to agitate for themselves, I respect their right to self determination, I respect their right to agitate on behalf of there people.
He said that IPOB should have consulted Urhobo people before encrypting them as part of their territory in Biafra map.
What we will not countenance is for them without consulting the Urhobo people sow moto on their own including Urhobo people as part of their map for the republic of Biafra.
We are never part of the republic of Biafra, we are not now and we do not plan to be part of that, he clearly stated”. Click here to watch video.
