The director-general of Voice of Nigeria Radio, Osita Okechukwu, made this disclosure while speaking during a meeting of Ohaneze Ndigbo  in Abuja on Wednesday 28 September 2016.

His words:
"If we must tell ourselves the truth, the greatest obstacle to the actualization of Biafra, was glaringly demonstrated by successive national conferences; the Abacha Conference and Jonathan Conference. In each of the two conferences, the issue of region was voted against by Enugu and Ebonyi states.

"The Jonathan Conference of 2014, for instance, was made up of pro-Biafra elements whom a lot had assumed will support regionalism as a prelude to secession. Other states like Ogun, Lagos, Bayelsa, Cross River and majority of Northern states rejected regionalism. To cap it all, the Jonathan Conference recommended the creation of over 50 states.”
"The agitation for Biafra sounds as a good music, much fun and furry as if it is the only route to Eldorado.

"This is false as some of us who lived in the defunct Biafra enclave can narrate. The question one had always posed is, can Biafra be achieved via democracy or by force?

"Most people one had discussed with had always told me it will be achieved via peaceful means, which in other words means democracy."
