Bishop Hezekiah, founder and leader of Living Christ Mission Worldwide a cleric in the South East,
in his recent chat with newsmen recently in Onitsha, Anambra State, Bishop Hezekiah who is also the founder and Chancellor of Hezekiah University in Imo State, looked at the protests by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), saying that there was nothing wrong for the Igbo to demand for a Biafran state, but stated Igbos would not be able to lead themselves He also spoke on other issues.

Excerpts:

About 40 something years ago, there was war: Nigeria/Biafra war and today IPOB, MASSOB are rearing up their heads again. What does God say about On Biafra, in 1967, I was in Class 3 and I was less than 15 years before the war. It was terrible. We suffered a lot. You can imagine a child that was less than 15, I trekked to Owerri and Orlu from my village. So you children of today that are chanting war songs should be very careful. War is never a pleasant experience anywhere. Listen to me very attentively on this issue of Biafra. When a nation begins to expand; I am not in support of having Biafra through war. Sometimes I am worried to ask: if we have Biafra today, who will lead us? Is it these governors that cannot lead their states effectively? Which of them? Otherwise, I can’t see anything wrong in having Biafra. If in the future we have Biafra, there is nothing wrong with it. I don’t want it through war but peace. Was six nations not created out of Yugoslavia which Macedonia is one of it? Was it not from Czechoslovakia that they created Czechs and Slovakia? Is it not true? Was Soviet Union not formerly 15 nations? So what is wrong? When a nation grows bigger and bigger there is nothing wrong in creating another nation out of it but let peace be the watchword. themselves? With the way we govern ourselves in Anambra, Imo and Abia states; can we really govern ourselves if dream of Biafra materializes? It’s worse in Abia State. I don’t like the way Abia State is. The people of Abia State are suffering too much. Look at it, somebody travelling to Port Harcourt through Umuagwo normally is stuck for about 10 hours due to bad roads. But when the governor will pass he would use helicopter. It’s very unfortunate. Let me stand and talk to these governments. You journalists should tell them. The blessings poured on these leaders by the people matter a lot. As well, the curses being rained on these governors and other leaders by these same people must come to pass. These old men and women raining curses on them because of their exploitation on them and their children will never spare these corrupt leaders. As well, those they are blessing will surely harvest their blessings. And another advice I am giving the governors is that they should govern their states well such that when they leave office, they would retain their respects such like that of Akanu Ibiam, Nelson Mandela, Nnamdi Azikiwe and so on. Let them know that money is not everything but the blessings of the righteous is always everything. God answers the prayers of the oppressed.
