The Thread: “We are greater together than apart” “Nigeria must be treated as a love affair” | OBJ, Osinbajo speak on #Biafra50

30th May 1967 will mark 50 years since the late Colonel Emeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu announced the secession of Eastern Nigeria and the establishment of Biafra. What followed after was a civil war that has left an indelible mark of the souls of the Igbo.

To commemorate the gruesome war and teach some necessary lessons in history, the Shehu Musa Yar’Adua Foundation in partnership with Ford Foundation and the Open Society Initiative for West Africa (OSIWA), organised a one-day conference on the theme, “Memory and Nation Building – Biafra: 50 Years After”.

The keynote speaker was Prof. Osinbajo; former president Obasanjo was also in attendance.
