The independence of Biafra from the occupational Islamic Nigerian government can no longer be disputed as that eventful day closes in. The acceptance of the global community of the agitation of Biafra, remains an irrefutable testimonial to that fact. Premised on the foregoing successful diplomatic moves around the world, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the global leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has pointedly given assurances to all nations that share bilateral economic cum political relationship with Nigeria, wherein the assets and liabilities which will be inherited by the regions emerging as the sovereign nation of Biafra, that they will be accorded due respect and accountability by the Biafran government. This declaration was made by the IPOB leader himself before the full glare of the international community in his response to a question fielded to him by Mazi Iyke Peters, a Biafra veteran and an astute Radio Biafra USA Radio 2 (New York City) On-Air Presenter, during a townhall meeting in Atlanta - Georgia, United States of America, on Thursday 30th of May 2019.
The question presented before the IPOB leader went thus:-
Mazi Iyke Peters: "Mazi, Biafran people have been calling into our live Radio broadcasts and asking if the Biafran government when inaugurated, will partake in foreign debt payments presently being recklessly accumulated by the outgoing occupational Nigerian government"?
Mazi Nnamdi Kanu: ".....the hard truth is that the government of Biafra must certainly partake in paying back those debts because we are artificially presently together in the country called Nigeria when those monies were borrowed. There is absolutely no way we will not partake in paying them back. This is because saying anything contrary will attract the opposition of the affected nations like China, Britain and others against our struggle for independence. In fact, Biafra will have to pay all debts when the time comes".
With the above concise response from the IPOB leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, speaking with the mandate of Biafrans all over the world, it is quite obvious that the Biafran government when inaugurated, will never pose any threat to the political, economic and other related bilateral interests of any nation. All assets and liabilities inherited from Nigeria, will receive full respect and be duly accounted for. Neither any country on this earth nor it's nationales domiciled within the territories of Biafra will stand any form of bilateral risk concerning relative economic and security interests. In fact, with the peaceful and hospitable antecedents of the Biafran people, all countries globally, stand a better chance of having conducive business atmosphere as well as economic/social security in a sovereign Biafra nation than what presently obtains in the Islamic terrorist-infested Nigerian federation. It will therefore be awesomely good for all nations of the world to fully support the quest for the independence of Biafra. The nation of Biafra remains a very civilized society where all relevant bilateral assets and liabilities can be honored and respected. The Biafra sovereignty will never ever pose any threat to the political, economic or social interest of any nation. Biafrans are incomparably peaceful, trustworthy, accommodating, ingenious and civilized. These are the sterling qualities that stand us out as a people.
