Half of a Yellow Sun writer, Chimamanda Adichie, has slammed her kinsmen, the Igbos, who are clamouring for the actualization of Biafra and presidency under a cloud of disunity.
Speaking during an interview with Ebuka Obi-Uchendu on Bounce Radio, the Purple Hibiscus writer revealed that the Southeast people have terrible leadership.
As such, the 43-year-old posits that there is no Biafra and Igbo people can not unite if there is no clarity of purpose as the call for Biafra negates the call for an Igbo president.
“There is no Biafra. There are new movements. But for me, it’s a question of being practical. Where would the border be? What is propelling these movements is a sense of marginalization, which I think is completely valid.
“Quite frankly, I’ve observed the terrible leadership that we have in the southeast.
“Igbo people cannot unite. If for example, we say we want an Igbo president, why then are we talking about Biafra. There is a lot of political work we need to do in the Southeast.
“We need to do a lot of rethinking on how we can strategize politically before we can talk about Biafra,” says The Thing Around Your Neck writer.
