‘Nothing Can Stop Biafra’- Arthur Nwankwo

Posted by on June 20th, 2018



Chancellor of Eastern Mandate Union (EMU),
Dr. Arthur Nwankwo, has declared that no
amount of force could suppress the Biafra
spirit and the urge for self-determination by
people of the South East of Nigeria.
This is as Nwanwko lamented that the
conditions that instigated the civil war
between 1967 and 1970 are still as virulent as
These are some of the issues contained in his
just released book, entitled: “Nigeria and her
Path to Doom.”

to this restructuring.
“This agitation is legitimate and in tune with
international law on self-determination.
“The agitation is not different from the
Scottish agitation in the United Kingdom; the
Catalonia agitation in Spain, the Eritrean
agitation in Ethiopia, the South-Sudan
agitation in Sudan,” he said.
Taking a swipe at three years of President
Buhari’s administration, Nwaknwo said the
country needed a reconstructive surgeon who
must perform a painful operation to extricate
a painful ailment and not a bulldozer or robot.
“Buhari is not a constructive surgeon and,
therefore, lacks the requisite credentials to
perform Nigeria’s surgical operation,”
Nwankwo said.
