Edwin Clark condemned the Biafra agitation

The elder statesman, Edwin Clark, on Tuesday condemned the Biafra agitation led by Nnamdi Kanu.
Clark stated this when the Chairman, Senate Committee on Local and Foreign Debt, Sen. Shehu Sani, paid him a courtesy visit in his Abuja residence on Monday.

He also condemned the quit notice given by a coalition of Arewa Youth Groups to Igbos in the North, saying it was worrisome.
He warned that secession or agitation were not the way to go on restructuring the country.
He said: “When Kanu talks about Biafra, he is talking nonsense. We do not want a second war.
“America fought their civil war for a long time and they are not thinking of a second one. Kanu should drop the agitation.
“At the same time, it is arrogant and foolish on the part of some Northern youths to issue quit notice. You do not own the North. It is part of Nigeria and anybody can live there.
“The Igbos have been living in the North for over 100 years. I condemn all of them.”
The elder statesman, however, emphasised the need for restructuring for equity and balance in the country.
He said though the call for restructuring had been loud in recent times, the country had been undergoing restructuring.
