Following this was a brief historical narrative about the Biafra restoration struggle captioned: "ANALYSIS OF OUR JOURNEY TO BIAFRA RESTORATION SINCE 1967". It was given by the Obio/Akpor Area 2 General Secretary cum Igweocha Elders Council Chairman, Deacon (Elder) Sam Izodinma. The lecture was both informative and educative.

The Area 2 Coordinator, Mazi Wisdom Elochukwu Okafor, gave detailed updates on very salient issues pertaining the struggle and seriously warned against fluttering the orders of the IPOB leadership as clearly outlined. He passionately encouraged all to remain strong, focused and dedicated to the restoration cause, assuring that Biafra is already here with us. He reiterated the need for all zonal coordinators to equip their media personnel with relevant media gadgets that will enhance their performances. The urgency attached for all the zones to have their respective twitter handles was equally stressed. Collaborating his call for a vibrant media in the local government, the Area 2 Media Head, Mazi Prince C. Iheukwumere harped on the importance of information dissemination through the internet. He encouraged all the zones through their media officers, to create online platforms including facebook pages, whatsapp accounts and most essentially, twitter handles. These he maintained are indispensable necessities in information dissemination in the Biafra restoration struggle from the area, amongst others.

Elder Njoku Ikechukwu Chukwunonyerem, the Obio/Akpor Area 2 Elders Council Chairman, called on all the zonal coordinators to as a matter of urgency, forward the names of their elders to his office. This demand he maintained, is of utmost importance and has an attached timeline.
