Oby Ezekwesili

Former presidential candidate, Oby Ezekwesili, has joined in the remembrance of victims who lost their lives in the struggle for actualisation of the Sovereign state of Biafra.

Biafra Remberance Day is observed on May 30 every year.

This year, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) called for a sit-at-home in the southeastern part of the country to mark Biafra Remberance Day.

While the order has succeeded in some states in the southeast, others have disregarded it.

“Biafra Remembrance Day celebration is on Thursday, May 30 (today) and Biafrans must not come out on that day. It will serve as a reminder to the overlords that we, Biafrans are united in our quest to be free from the iniquitous bondage called Nigeria,” IPOB had said.

In a tweet on Thursday, Mrs Ezekwesili said: “This year’s #BiafraRemberanceDay, we not only remember and pray for all families among us who lost sons, daughters, dads, moms, siblings and relatives in the war but specially thank the @cfmemories for starting the great work of documentation. People are not Statistics #Ozoemena.”

She added: “A country of leaders & people who quickly move on from every Horror it suffers and never learned how to properly grieve and empathize with victims. Just look at us…. forever repeating tragedies because we have refused to learn. May our children end the horrors. #OZOEMENA.”
