Cletus Obun, the vice chairman of the All Progressive Congress (APC) central senatorial district of cross River state, declared that Igbos are asking for presidency to carve out their country.
Obun regretted that the elites including the ministers, the senators, House of Representatives members, business men and women have not called their people to order as expected.
He said: ''You asked us to give you presidency so that you use it to create an Igbo Nation, to build an Igbo federation, you make your case for presidency weaker. I for one will not want an Igbo to be president so that he will not come and ask me in Cross River to become a Biafra.

''Look at the map of Biafra starting from Ogoja; you want to make me a Biafra, that is conscription, you want to conscript me into a place I am not, there is no referendum that I say I want to be part of it from Cross River, I don’t think any Akwa Ibom person would like to be a member of Biafra given our experience after Independence''.
He, however said he wondered if Nnamdi Kanu, the leader Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) was born before the civil war.
He said: ''I am not sure he was born during the war, he think that Biafra is a song that must be re-enacted and re-invented, he cannot do that for his Father and Mother who are keeping quiet about it, they are not doing the Igbos any good.
''Even Ojukwu before he died said Biafra was dead, Ojukwu said so, so what Kanu is fighting for, I no longer know. He wants to resurrect the dead body, he must be Jesus to do that and those who are supporting and funding him must know that they are carrying the joke too far''.
The APC chieftain advised Nigerian government to petition international communities over the action of any country involved in supporting IPOB.
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had reported that members of the Indigenous People of Biafra marched to the British Embassy in Berlin, Germany, to protest the Nigerian army presence in the southeast.
