I am too much in love with Nigeria to become Biafra minister – Jerry Gana


Erstwhile Minister of Information, Jerry Gana, has dissociated himself from Benjamin Onwuka of the Biafra Zionist Federation (BZF) who appointed him as Minister in his secessionist federation.

Onwuka had announced an interim ‎government to run the affairs of Biafra, in which Gana was appointed Minister of Transport.

However, Gana in a press release signed and issued by his Special Assistant [Political], Adakole Ijogi, said he was too much in love with the Federal Republic of Nigeria to contemplate allegiance to any other nation, real or imaginary.

The statement reads: “We received with utter dismay and incongruity the recent press release and media report purportedly appointing Prof. Jerry Gana, CON as Minister in the cabinet of a certain Biafra Zionist Federation by one Barr. Benjamin Onwuka.

“Prof. Jerry Gana, wishes to resolutely dissociate himself from both the so-called Biafra Zionist Federation and its activities. Prof. Gana remains very loyal and firmly committed to the integrity of the Federal Republic of Nigerian.

“We wish to re-state very clearly that, Prof. Gana, and our people, are too much in love with the Federal Republic of Nigeria to contemplate allegiance to any other nation, real or imaginary.

“While he appreciates the strong desires of some compatriots for greater inclusion, fairness, justice, and equitable development, Prof. Gana remains strongly of the view that a transformed, balanced and united Federal Republic of Nigeria is a far better and sustainable solution than dis-integration into small nation-states.”

Meanwhile, the Department of State Services (DSS) has concluded plans to invite Gana and some other prominent Nigerians for questioning over their purported appointment into the interim Biafra Cabinet.
