It said Kurubo, who is a graduate of international Universities with versatile knowledge of International relations, peace and conflict resolution as well as strategic studies, will pilot the affairs of the RE-IPOB until Biafra is actualized or the Nigerian government demonstrates its sincerity to fully re-integrate the people of Biafra through negotiations.
RE-IPOB also unveiled a list of eminent personalities and elders of Biafra who are expected to lead its negotiation with the Nigerian government.
The list include; Dr Arthur Nwankwo, Dr kenneth Opigo, Dr. Okey Emordi, Barr.

The statement added that: “We warn that RE-IPOB is not negotiating out of fear. Our position is not out of cowardice, we want peace. Butthe federal government should return our goodwill and readiness for talks with honesty and sincerity.”
“Nnamdi Kanu should henceforth desist from issuing any statement on behalf of Biafra in his own interest,” the statement read.
The group urged security agents to stop molesting or killing members of RE-IPOB as its security arm, Ogbunigwe, had been set up to protect Biafra people.
