Biafra Nations Youth League, BNYL, has said grassroots referendum programs will commence Monday, next week.

Princewill Obuka, BNYL Leader, said the group will converge in Akwa Ibom State, to honour late Biafra Chief of General Staff and Vice President General Philip Effiong, adding that BYNL faithful would witness the presence of war veterans from Akwa IBom and Crosss River State.

Obuka said Igbos and entire ethnic groups of former Eastern region would have been consumed by the civil war “if not that Effiong decided to swallow his ego and agreed with Ojukwu and the rest Easterners”.
