Responding to the development, Kanu while speaking to members of the groups said the appointment humbled him and assured them of inclusive participation in decision making.

His word, “I am humbled by this decision of the groups. We started together and we have all ended up together because we are sincere and purposeful. I am not in the habit of letting my friends down.

“Everybody will be carried along; if I am invited for any meeting, I will take some people along. Today is a great day for Biafrans all over the world. Today, we have shamed our enemies that think that we cannot come together, who think that if we get Biafra, we will kill ourselves, we have shamed them.”
