The member representing Delta Central Senatorial District at the National Assembly, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, has condemned the inclusion of Urhobo ethnic nationality as part of Biafra, noting that such an action is a blunt disrespect to the Urhobo Nation.

The senator, who is a former Secretary to the Delta State Government, pointed out that “while Article 1 (2) of the United Nations Charter recognises the principle of equal rights and self-determination of peoples such act obviously does not grant any group the right to arbitrarily usurp the self-determination right of others.”

Omo-Agege said, “With the deluge of concerns being raised by my people, it has become necessary to state with absolute clarity as the senator for the Urhobo Nation in the 8th Senate of our Federal Republic of Nigeria that the Urhobo Nation has never been, is not and does not wish to be part of Biafra.
