The Asagba of Asaba, Obi Chike Edozien, has traced the agitation for the state of Biafra by some people in the Eastern part of Nigeria to the injustice they have been reduced to for years.

He stated this Tuesday in Asaba at the beginning of the activities marking his 90th Birthday celebration, noting that he desires a country where everybody has a sense of belonging as he claimed injustice smacks agitation for separation among the ethnic groups.

HRM advised the President Muhammed Buhari to make sure that Nigeria with more than 200 tribes deserves justice so that it would not be truncated and Asaba would not be diminished.

He said Nigeria deserved to be a great country devoid of corruption.

On the National Assembly leadership crisis, the royal father said President Buhari and the All Progressive Congress, APC, should display the change they have advocated.

The royal father insisted that as an apostle of change he has to bring progress to humanity and that if there is a problem or issues dragging the country back, the government must have an urgent need to fix them.

HRM Edozien, while explaining his position on the Asaba Capital Bill passed by the State House of Assembly, said there existed confusion between the capital and capital territory Bill, he stated that Asaba remains the capital of Delta State as far as the constitution is concerned and that as far as he is concerned Asaba should be the focus and symbol of developments.
