As the new chief executive of TRIPOB, he declared: “I hereby issue executive order number one, which is that the planned ’surrender’ of the Biafran flag scheduled for January 15, 2017 is hereby cancelled.

“All preparations towards the ceremony must be put on hold with immediate effect.”

“The surrender of a people can only come from the inside. A man may surrender outwardly, but remain defiant inside. The spirit to be ‘free’ cannot be suppressed. We, as a people can only be bound by our mind and our fears,” he said.
