The Biafra Memorial Project (BMP) is the harbinger that will herald the dawn of an era of Igbo renaissance. The Igbos, as a nationality, were edged out of the center stage of the national political arena because of the issues that surround Biafra. The BMP is the leading edge of a set of programs that will restore respect and dignity to the Igbo nation as well as enable Ndigbo to begin to focus their future plans in ways that will guarantee that they will never again allow a repeat of the horrid experiences of the past 30 years. The Biafra Memorial Project will consolidate the unity of the Igbo nation by creating monuments and symbols that will immortalize the struggle that we collectively endured in order to preserve honor and the inalienable right to live free in our ancestral homeland. ... - More
The proclamation of Biafra was marked by wild ecstasy amongst the generality of Easterners who, for the first time in the past 12 months, felt that they have found something concrete to hang their future hopes on. Overall morale was sky high and the new nation was predicted to become the showcase of Black African ingenuity in all aspects of human endeavour. ..... - More
Because of the unique cultural heritage of Ndigbo, it would be unrealistic to expect that our collective interests will be best articulated by a group of select elites or chieftains as are the practices in the North and West.

"All is fair in war, and starvation is one of the weapons of war. I don't see why we should feed our enemies fat in order for them to fight harder."
- Awolowo

Cutting of all sources of food from Biafran starving population was deliberate policy of federal government. "Starvation is a legitimate weapon of war, and we have every intention of using it against the rebels..." ..... - More
The strategic political interests of Ndigbo should be reflected at the local, regional and national levels. It will be a daunting task to optimize Igbo political interests in the Nigerian Federation if a regional operational agenda is not first evolved between the core Igbo states and the neighboring states of Cross River, Akwa Ibom, Rivers, Bayelsa and Delta. For Ndigbo to maximize their economic potential, they need a direct unimpeded access to the Atlantic shores. ......- More

Without any arsenal of armaments to rely on, Biafrans prepared to ward off the invaders with anything that they could lay their hands on. Machetes, Dane guns, spears, bows and arrows were brandished by irate but determined citizens who trooped out in thousands to demand to be sent to the warfront to repel the invaders. ..... - More
Of all the indignations of the Biafra War, being made to be refugees in one’s own fatherland was the most humiliating to Ndigbo. Igbos were stripped bare and left to die like flies as they fought for survival for more than 30 months while the world looked on.... - More
