Head of the Change Ambassadors of Nigeria, CAN, Chris Nwaokobia-Jnr III, on Tuesday called on Igbos across the country to demand for good governance from leaders in the zone rather than support the call for Biafra Republic.

Nwaokobia, a political, public and social analyst, gave the impression that the problems facing the region is mostly caused by bad leadership as well as the refusal of the indigenes to question some unfavourable policies of governments of the various states that make up the South-east.

In a Facebook posting concerning the agitation for Biafra, Nwaokobia said: “I know that we have the worst network of Inland Roads in the South East. I see baffling cronyism in state contracting protocols in Igboland.

“I hear fuel sells the highest in Igboland, my brothers hoard the product and sell at awkward times and price.

“I hear Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has sacked 3,000 workers. And I remember how the former Governor of Abia State, Theodore Orji, sacked all the civil servants in the state who were not from Abia.

“What we need in the South-east is Igbo renaissance, we must overhaul our values and mores.

“We must re-work our worn-out fabric of love and community. And we must insist on responsible and responsive governance within and outside Igboland, not Biafra.”
