She said:"I want to welcome our Ohamadike, Ihudike na anyu nma nko, Ogugua 1 of Biafra. I want to see him and tell welcome. I also want to thank Chukwu Okike Abiama for giving us director Nnamdi Kanu."
I came from Onitsha no matter the condition, to welcome Ohamadike, he is one out of a trillion, and nobody is like him.
I want to see him face to face and thank him first, then we discuss other issue; how to move our struggle forward and how to restore Baifra.
Biafra is already here, zoo is fallen!
Haven’t you seen my condition, all the president, all the governors, common sickness, common headache, they will travel out to America, UK, leaving the poor masses to die.
Immediately we restore Biafra you cannot see this kind of condition; even if you’re disabled, you’ll have something doing. Biafra is a good nation and a blessed land.
Nnamdi Kanu, God sent him ; God called Nnamdi Kanu like Jeremiah to restore this very Biafra,"Anthonia said.
She also called on all members of the IPOB to remain steadfast and work together for the actualization of their struggle.
She also urged members of the group to shun envy and jealousy, stating that it will hinder the struggle for Biafra.
Fani-Kayode also urged the IPOB leader to operate peacefully in his struggle and shun any efforts by the federal government to push him into armed struggle.
