Notable people keep questioning the Indigenous People of Biafra, what the essence of Biafra is and why we want her and not restructuring. I have tried severally to convince them that it is not a matter of wanting but having to restore the original right of ownership given naturally to us by Chukwu Okike Abiama.
Before the advent of the British, the Northern and Southern protectorate existed independently until Britain amalgamated these separate entities that is more or less "oil and water", a very bad combination that can never blend together. The evil empire out of greed and urge to serve their economic interest, not minding the negative impact of their actions went ahead to concoct what is today known as Nigeria.
Biafrans having being in slumber for too long, have been hit with great reawakening like a thunderbolt through Nnamdi Kanu’s eye opening enlightenment of her history. Therefore, we need Biafra because it is our identity and cannot be allowed to remain abducted for the continued exploitation and looting of her mineral resources by the British, Hausa-Fulanis and the Yorubas who are nothing but leeches and parasites.
while on the other hand, restructuring will continue to subject us to deprivation and limit our ability to take full control of our domain, resources and future. Biafra is our heritage and we have a right to dwell in her without oppression, invasion or extortion from strangers.
Biafra depicts our personality, cultural values and ways of life. She reveals our natural abilities, beliefs and common interests. How then can we not want to experience and enjoy the dividends God attributed to us as a people and settle for restructure which will still pave way for stealing of her wealth and destiny?

The blood thirsty government is so archaic that it has spilled many innocent Biafran blood and still not satisfied. What makes you think that restructuring will stop the killing of Biafrans? Can anyone justify the essence of a union characterized with killing of unarmed masses by joint government military forces armed to the teeth in armoury?

Can anyone tell why terrorists and marauding murderers are granted amnesty with financial benefits? Is it justifiable for people of separate beliefs, cultures and traditions be enforced and enclaved into a contrasting contraption?

Who can bear the pains of poverty amicably and with pride amid restructure? These and more are begging to be answered, and if no one can give a sincere answer to these questions, then the issue of restructure should be trashed into the bin.
Biafra is our heritage, it is our origin, it is our inheritance, it gives us our identity and therefore, we refuse to become a nonentity. As far as Nigeria is concerned, only her dismemberment into its original component parts will save Biafrans and her fellow occupants of the British estate called Nigeria.
