When contacted by our reporter on why his office is organising this noble initiative, the Head of Directorate of the Indigenous People of Biafra (HOD), Mazi Uchenna Asiegbu had this to say "One of the major reasons that we are putting this exhibition together is to avoid a situation where tomorrow the genocide committed against Biafrans will be denied. We are aware of the ongoing move by the British government as well as the Nigerian government to rewrite history and claim that the genocide never happened. We want to use exhibitions like this to put the genocide against our people in the consciousness of the world especially the media"
The Head of Directorate equally believes that it is in preparation for the denial of the genocide and pogrom against Biafrans that history was removed as a subject of study in Nigerian schools.

He also hinted that foreign friends of Biafra are also invited to the exhibition to come and witness first-hand the atrocities committed against Biafra by the Nigerian government and her British collaborator.
