The Federal Government says the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) is ignorant of the depth of unity in the diversity of Nigeria.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed stated this on Wednesday in Abuja when he featured on “Embelembe” a phone-in radio programme on 101.1 Human Rights Radio.
The Minister also faulted the call by Nnamdi Kanu on the Igbo “not to attend any Church where the pastor is a Yoruba man”.
Mohammed said that the Mountain of Fire Ministry established by an Igbo, has a Football Club owned by a Yoruba, with a coach from Igbo extraction and players across all the regions and tribes of the country.
Mohammed noted that the Federal government was not adverse to agitations from any quarter provided it was carried out in a manner that would not result into violence and war.
He commended the military, the state governors particularly from the East and the North, the traditional rulers and religious leaders for their timely intervention to nip the crises started by IPOB’s in the bud.
The Minister said the government of President Muhammadu Buhari is passionate about the plight of Nigerians and would not rest until it makes life easier for everyone.
Mohammed also disclosed that no fewer than 3 million pupils were being fed in 14 states while 30,000 cooks were engaged through the Federal Government feeding programme.
