All Progressives Congress (APC) Senator Dapo Tejuoso from Ogun state has said that the agitation for an independent state of Biafra remains a joke as long as the south-east region continues to be represented in the National Assembly.
According to ThisDay, Tejuoso said the Biafra issue will only be taken seriously when these representatives demand for a new country at the National Assembly through a democratic process.
He said: “As far as I am concerned, the South East is still represented in the senate; they have their own senators, they have their House of Representatives members, they have not come up through any of these process to say they want to form another country; those who are shouting are those outside the system.
“So, for me, it is the day, senators start talking about it, that House of Representatives members start talking about it, it is then that it will make serious importance, but we are running democracy.
“The day they said people should stay at home and they too stayed at home; their House of Representatives members did not stay at home and these are the people representing them.”
