British Government Declares Support For A United Nigeria.
The British high commissioner to Nigeria, Mr. Paul Arkwright, has spoken out on the wish of his government for Nigeria to remain a single, united entity.
The diplomat was of the opinion that as much as those agitating for Biafra have a right to be heard, the British government would not support any activity that would lead to the break up of Nigeria.
Arkwright made the position on Biafra, restructuring and activities of IPOB known while speaking on Joy 109.1 FM during a visit to Jos, the Plateau state capital.
“We are in favour of a united Nigeria; we do not support IPOB, we do not support secessionists.
“Equally, they have a right to be heard because the constitution provides for freedom of expression, even as restructuring is going to be a major factor in the 2019 elections.”
“Although I do not know how exactly the restructuring will look like, I am sure that it is going to be a major determinant in the 2019 elections.” He said.
