Former Nigerian Special adviser Reno Omokiri. Posted this on his Instagram account.
“During the civil war, Biafra made her own weapons, including guns, armoured cars and the famous ogbunigwe. Biafra also refined her own petrol. Please don’t take my word for it. Research it. 50 years after defeating Biafra, Nigeria can’t make her own weapons or refine fuel. We are dependent on others to fight Boko Haram. Our brothers and sisters are being killed like chickens in Northern Nigeria. And we import every drop of petrol sold in Nigeria. Why didn’t we learn from the Biafrans? Why did we not turn those Biafran war era scientists into Nigerian scientists to drive our technology? Nigeria should not fear the Igbos. Nigeria should be fair to the Igbos!
