    TRANSCRIPT: SEQ. 8: REPORTER: "HOW WAS THE CONFERENCE?"



    ENAHORO: " THE CONCLUSION WAS DISAPPOINTING. THINGS SEEMED TO BE GOING FAIRLY WELL IN THE LAST TWO DAYS BUT IT SEEMED CLEAR TOWARDS THE END THAT THE REBEL DELEGATION WERE UNDER INSTRUCTIONS ESPECIALLY AFTER MR. OJUKWU'S BROADCAST. AND I THINK WE ENDED WHERE WE BEGAN."



    REPORTER: "WHAT HOPE IS NOW LEFT FOR A NEGOTIATED SETTLEMENT OF THE NIGERIAN CRISIS, CHIEF ENAHORO?"



    ENAHORO: CLEARLY ONE SIDE OF THE OTHER MUST MOVE FORWARD. WE ARE IN NO POSITION TO COMPROMISE ON THE QUESTION OF ONE NIGERIA BUT ITS POSSIBLE TO REACH AGREEMENT ON THE VARIOUS STEPS OF STAGES WHICH SHOULD BE TAKEN OVER AN AGREED PERIOD TO ARRIVE AT OUR ULTIMATE GOAL. BUT WE CANNOT GIVE UP THAT GOAL. IT SEEMS FOR THE TIME BEING AT ANY RATE, THAT THE REBELS INSIST ON NEGOTIATING AS A SOVEREIGN STATE AND WE CANNOT RECOGNISE THAT POSITION. SO CLEARLY ONE SIDE OR THE OTHER MUST GIVE IF THERE IS TO BE A NEGOTIATED SETTLEMENT.
