  • Description

    THE NIGERIAN HIGH COMMISSIONER IN GHANA, MR VICTOR ADEGOROYE, TOLD A PRESS CONFERENCE IN ACCRA ON THURSDAY THAT THE ULTIMATE DEFEAT OF THE FORCES OF THE "REBEL EASTERN REGION" NOW CALLING ITSELF BIAFRA WOULD NOT ALONE SOLVE THE PRESENT NIGERIAN PROBLEM. HOWEVER, HE SAID BIAFRA'S DEFEAT WAS A PREREQUISITE TO SOLVING THE PROBLEM AS IT WOULD HELP THE ESTABLISHMENT OF CIVIL RULE IN THE COUNTRY.

    MR ADEGOROYE PRAISED THE EFFORTS OF THE GHANAIAN NATIONAL LIBERATION COUNCIL (NLC) FOR ITS EFFORTS TO FIND A PEACEFUL SOLUTION TO THE NIGERIAN CRISIS. BUT HE DESCRIBED THE GHANAIAN PRESS AS "OVER SENSITIVE" ABOUT "CERTAIN MATTERS" CONCERNING NIGERIA, AND CALLED ON NIGERIAN NEWSMAN TO BE OBJECTIVE IN THEIR REPORTING AND SHOW SYMPATHY FOR A COURSE WHICH WAS "DESIGNED TO PREVENT DISINTEGRATION OF A SISTER-AFRICAN COUNTRY."
    USING A MAP, MR ADEGORYE SAID THAT, LAST MONTH, SEVERAL TOWNS AND VILLAGES IN BIAFRA HAD BEEN "LIBERATED BY FEDERAL FORCES"."
