The Archbishop of Enugu Ecclesiastical Province and Bishop of Enugu Diocese, Rt. Rev Emmanuel Chukwuma, yesterday expressed displeasure that those who
gave Ndigbo three months to quit the northern part of the country were still walking freely and charged the Federal Government to live to its responsibilities.

Chukwuma also berated pro-Biafra agitators over the recently held sit at home to mark Biafra day, urging them to look for other ways of carrying out their agitation, rather than a sit at home.

He also stated that hunger and betrayal were the root causes of the rampant movement from one political party to another, especially by Igbo politicians, and asked them to retrace their steps.

In a presidential address he read at the third session of the 16th Synod of Enugu Diocese, Chukwuma condemned the quit order, saying the inability of the Federal Government to arrest those behind it was a serious signal to danger.

“This is worst than what Kanu was being persecuted for. This Synod hereby appreciates, however, the statement of some elders in the north in condemning the actions of these unscrupulous youths.

“We, however, warn that we will not tolerate what happened in 1966 to reoccur or else this country will be in total disarray.

“We are warning that our Igbo should be allowed to do their business anywhere, as others, and if the situation becomes unbearable for them, they should come back, but we will demand for referendum for us to be on our own,” he stated.
