Popular Nigerian author and novelist, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie has shared her opinion about the unity of people from the Igbo tribe.
In an interview, the award-winning writer wondered how Igbos can achieve Biafra when they can’t unite towards selecting a someone as a candidate for the seat of a president who is from the region.
“There is no Biafra. There are new movements but, for me, it’s a question of being practical. Where would the border be? What is propelling these movements is a sense of marginalization, which I think is completely valid.
“But this idea that the answer is independence is what I’m not convinced of. Nobody has made a logical case for me. Quite frankly, I’ve observed the terrible leadership that we have in the southeast
“Igbo people cannot unite if, for example, we say we want an Igbo president. And then we’re talking about Biafra. There is a lot of political work we need to do in the southeast.
“We need to do a lot of rethinking on how we strategise politically before we can talk about Biafra.”
