Ulasi/ Oguta River Strategically located at Anambra/Imo, Ibaka River at Akwaibom with 30 nautical miles to the Atlantic Ocean”, he outlined.
Comrade Igboayaka, after evaluating the contents of the speech noted emphatically that; “Prof. George Obiozor technically unveiled to President Mohammadu Buhari the deliberately orchestrated conspiracy by Nigeria political actors to undermine development in Igbo land in the area of maritime business. Also, Calabar sea which is 45 nautical miles to the Atlantic Ocean, Onne Seaport 50 nautical miles, Bonny Sea 45 nautical miles to the Atlantic Ocean and Afikpo Osiza Beach are all sabotaged by the past Nigeria government.
Other demands Prof. Obiozor presented to Mr President, he revealed were: infrastructural development like railway connecting Ala Igbo to Modern Railway (all the cities in Igboland, Portharcourt, Aba, Nnewi, Asaba, Orlu, Okigwe, Umuahia, Onitsha, Obigbo, Ikwerre, Enugu, Nsukka, Afigbo, Owerri, Abakiliki, Calabar and Ibaka.

Furthermore, the youth leader applauded Obiozor for his courageous appeal for the release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu alongside other Ipob and pro-Biafra members who have been in detention.
Meanwhile, he used the medium to Implore presidential Buhari to support the call for a community security network in Igbo land, saying it will help compliment the effort of Nigeria security agents.
