Elder statesman, Chief Edwin Clark, has insisted that the South-South region will not be part of the Republic of Biafra when actualised.

According to him, the Indigenous People of Biafra was wrong to include the region as part of Biafraland.

He maintained that the detained IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu, was fighting a good cause but using a wrong approach.

Clark maintained that the South-East deserves a sixth state, noting that the region had been shortchanged in federal appointments.

The elder statesman said this during an interview with BBC Pidgin.

He said,.“They are very unrealistic boys. To me, IPOB is not pursuing the right thing.

“I told him (Kanu) that he has a good fight, that the people of the East are being neglected.

“They have only five states, whereas other regions have six. In fact, one has seven. Based on what? Nobody knows.

“For every appointment that is being made in this country, the Igbo are shortchanged. If universities are being distributed per state, they will have five. Others will have six while North-West will have seven.”
