Erstwhile Minister of Information, Jerry Gana, has
dissociated himself from Benjamin Onwuka of the
Biafra Zionist Federation (BZF) who appointed him
as Minister in his secessionist federation.

Onwuka had announced an interim government to
run the affairs of Biafra, in which Gana was
appointed Minister of Transport.

However, Gana in a press release signed and
issued by his Special Assistant [Political], Adakole
Ijogi, said he was too much in love with the
Federal Republic of Nigeria to contemplate
allegiance to any other nation, real or imaginary.

The statement reads: “We received with utter
dismay and incongruity the recent press release
and media report purportedly appointing Prof. Jerry
Gana, CON as Minister in the cabinet of a certain
Biafra Zionist Federation by one Barr. Benjamin
Onwuka.

“Prof. Jerry Gana, wishes to resolutely dissociate
himself from both the so-called Biafra Zionist
Federation and its activities. Prof. Gana remains
very loyal and firmly committed to the integrity of
the Federal Republic of Nigerian.

“We wish to re-state very clearly that, Prof. Gana,
and our people, are too much in love with the
Federal Republic of Nigeria to contemplate
allegiance to any other nation, real or imaginary.

“While he appreciates the strong desires of some
compatriots for greater inclusion, fairness, justice,
and equitable development, Prof. Gana remains
strongly of the view that a transformed, balanced
and united Federal Republic of Nigeria is a far
better and sustainable solution than dis-integration
into small nation-states.”

Meanwhile, the Department of State Services (DSS)
has concluded plans to invite Gana and some other
prominent Nigerians for questioning over their
purported appointment into the interim Biafra
Cabinet.
