Some estimate that the proposed Lower Niger Referendum shall engage as many as 50 million people who inhabit the most densely populated part of Nigeria in an exercise that is anticipated to be concluded within a 24-hour period or so. This is more than a quarter of the country’s total population. The Referendum, therefore, is going to be a daunting logistical undertaking which shall require all the manpower and material resources that we can mobilize in order to ensure that the process is smooth, orderly and peaceful.
Since no one anticipates the central government of Nigeria and its peripheral outlets to contribute or assist toward the planning and execution of the 2017 Lower Niger Referendum, the LNC has established a robust fundraising platform to lead the effort at mobilizing the manpower and material resources, including cash, which shall be deployed in all the villages, hamlets, towns and cities in the target area to prepare the people for this epoch-making event.

I believe that each Nigerian state or region should have self-determination and autonomy, like in the United States. After all, that is how a “Federal Republic” should operate.
I used to believe in One Nigeria, but the level of corruption and neglect has caused me to re-think a centrally controlled government, where the ordinary citizen has no real voice. The ability for each state to manage their own resources and affairs will significantly increase accountability and reduce corruption.
Why must Enugu State wait for Abuja to fix the power problem in Nigeria when we have abundance of coal in Enugu. Why isn’t the Oji River Plant up-and-running? Why must we wait for Abuja to allocate resources to Enugu State in order to fix the Oji River Plant, or to handle the gully erosion in my village? This is ridiculous!
