BRGIE Adopts Charter On Biafra Declaration In Helsinki Finland
The Biafra Republic Government in Exile, BRGIE has adopted a charter on the Biafra Declaration in an extraordinary conference held in Helsinki Finland.
Mazi Simon Ekpa, the Prime Minister Biafra Republic Government in Exile and Finland-based lawyer disclosed this in a statement on Friday at the two-day convention.
He said there is no going back on the actualization of the Biafra referendum as BRGIE voted and adopted the Biafra Charter called the Biafra Helsinki Declaration 2023.
Speaking at the convention now known as the ‘Biafra Helsinki Declaration October 20-21, 2023’, Ekpa stated that the Nigerian government is yet to tackle the root of Biafra agitation.
He explained that the Biafra agitation, which started due to the marginalization of Igbos in Nigeria, has degenerated into self-preservation.
He accused the Nigerian government of continued injustice and unfairness against the people of Biafra.
Ekpa insisted that without equity and fairness, the idea of ‘one Nigeria’ is not sustainable.
Consequently, Ekpa noted that Igbos have declared Biafra De Facto Government (BDFG) and BRGIE to serve the Nation and People of the southeast under the occupation of Nigeria.
He added that Biafra should be allowed to have its independence and liberation.
‘” It is as though there is an international conspiracy not to talk about the ongoing conflict in Nigeria. For over a decade now, Biafrans are again been agitating for freedom. What was initially motivated by agitation against marginalization has transformed into agitation for self-preservation.
“Agitation for Biafra that reemerged again more than a decade ago to protest exclusion from governance and marginalization regarding resource sharing and infrastructure development has since turned to agitation for self-preservation.
“They are yet to make any concessions regarding the fundamental causes of the agitation in the first place.
