Founder of the Biafra Independence Movement, BIM, and Movement for Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra, BIM-MASOB, Chief Ralph Uwazuruike, has accused Western leaders, including Britain and the United States of America, of being hypocritical on the issue of Biafran independence.
He also demanded to know from the Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organization, UNPO, Secretary-General, Ralph Bunche, why the African case different.
Uwazuruike asked this question while delivering a speech during the virtual plenary of the African Union, AU, Chapter of UNPO, due to travel restriction occasioned by the Covid-19 pandemic.
His words: “Many countries in Europe and America were granted independent status on yearly bases but when it comes to Africa, they will say we would remain one country. I do not know why should we remain one in the face of palpable injustices.”
