- Fredrick Onyeali defines who the people of Biafra are
- He sets the foundation of how a future Republic of Biafra should work with Nigeria to ensure peace and prosperity in the region for all
- He defines the role that the future Republic of Biafra needs to play to ensure there is regional security
Pro-Biafra Groups are well structured to gain inroads globally. Up until now, there has been a lack of cohesion of message that will allow Biafrans in Nigerian and in diaspora to operate as one homogenous unit. That necessitates defining what a genuine Biafran future should look like. It is therefore incumbent on Biafrans to codify a crystal clear Biafran National charter.
"The Republic of Biafra existed in the 60s and had a charter defined by General Ojukwu. It is now incumbent upon us to use that as inspiration in defining our position as Biafrans and fleshing out our demands for negotiations with Nigeria" Dr. Onyeali.
At the moment pro-Biafra factions have not offered Biafrans a unified vision of how they see Biafra. The only way all Biafrans will join the struggle is if they are presented with a path forward that clearly defines where they are and where they are going.
Out of its purity of intention, a preeminent National Charter of the future Republic of Biafra should include all voices in Biafra and in diaspora that are willing and ready to join the struggle for the restoration of Biafra.
"General Ojukwu charted a course that we must now follow in word and deed. Time for the individual is long gone. We must now focus on day to day issues that Biafrans have to deal with. We must also not forget Biafran women who have endured a life of hardship over the last 50 years" Dr. Fredrick Onyeali
A future Republic of Biafra should be defined by its spirit of inclusion irrespective of gender and religion. It should be welcoming to all Biafrans regardless of their personal convictions.
