Biafra: Britain to Frustrate Breakup in Nigeria




Paul Arkwright, the British High Commissioner to Nigeria has stated that the United Kingdom is behind one and indivisible Nigeria.


Arkwright made this affirmation at a public lecture titled “‎Brexit: Lessons, Challenges and Opportunities for Nigeria”, at the Federal University, Lokoja, on Thursday.

Speaking on the position of Britain on the groups pushing to break from Nigeria, the envoy ‎ said the UK remained firm in its support for one Nigeria.

He noted that the unity of Nigeria should not be negotiable, stressing that the country will be better under one umbrella.

“The strength of Nigeria is not in her money or oil but her greatest asset remains her well-endowed and resourceful people,” Arkwright said.

He said that Britain would support Nigeria in the areas of education and business development, and will also strive to increase our market by encouraging more investments in Nigeria.”

Meanwhile, the Presidency had revealed that the British Government will give the Federal Government information about Nigerians who own property in that country next year.
