A chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress and erstwhile presidential candidate, Pat Utomi, has disowned a pro-Biafra group, Biafra Zionist Federation, BZF, for nominating him as a member of the ‘cabinet’ of the proposed Biafra Republic.
Recall that BZF had on Monday announced an interim government to run the affairs of Biafra.
The self-acclaimed President of Biafra, Barr. Benjamin Onwuka while making announcement in Enugu named Utomi, Chukwuma Soludo- Central Bank of Biafra, CBB; Mrs. Aruma Oteh- finance minister, Prof. Jerry Gana- transport; Labaran Maku- aviation, among others as part of Biafra cabinet.
But speaking with Punch, Utomi said he has never heard about them or met the group before.
He said, “I have never heard of those people before. I have never met them. Nnamdi Kanu was created by people who arrested him and we’re still making the same mistake all over again.
“When you people (media) give credence to those kinds of people and begin to discuss them, tomorrow, they get taken seriously. So, I think the best thing to do is to ignore those kinds of things.”
