Donald Trump, who has been a long-time supporter of Biafra, has granted his political power to the Biafran movement. This development has been a long time coming. For years, members of IPOB and other pro-Biafra organizations have been rallying and protesting, trying to make their voice heard by the Nigerian government. For example, before the date for the referendum was announced, IPOB threatened to sabotage the government elections in Anambra State. Now that the date for the referendum is set, they are one step closer to the recognition of Biafra.

Biafra supporters and believers rejoice, as they see this referendum as a guarantee that Biafra will rise again. Their positive attitude is also fueled by government officials from other countries. State representatives from Great Britain and Turkey voiced their support of the movement for the independence of Biafra. However, many claim that the referendum will not necessarily grant Biafra freedom. One of those people is Governor Aminu Bello Masari.

In a recent interview, he said that, referendum or no referendum, Biafra has no place in the world. He thinks that Nigeria should stay united, as it is stronger when the three main tribe (Igbo, Hausa and Yoruba) stand together. In Masari’s opinion, Biafra is just another fluke. He compared Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of IPOB, to Boko Haram, who tried to forge an empire.

He also drew an analogy between IPOB and the O’odua People’s Congress (a Yoruba nationalist organization). Governor Masari said that members of pro-Biafra groups are not fighting for the idea, but more for the political power it will bring them.
