Restructure Nigeria or Biafra now

Chris Aniedobe, Esq., US-based lawyer and social activist, is a vocal advocate for geopolitical restructuring of Nigeria & self-determination right for all constituents.

Hear from Lugard himself why he created Nigeria. Nigeria was created by Britain for Britain. He also created “chiefs” in Igboland to extend indirect rule just like he already did in the Northern Region. 

After being forced into Nigeria without consent, Ndiigbo and indeed all Nigerian ethnicities are now old enough to decide, by Referendum, whether they wish to continue being in Nigeria or not. It is a mere democratic exercise and asking for Referendum should not conflate with secession. It is asking to make Nigeria a de-jure nation as opposed to a de-facto nation.

Nigeria cannot be a lawful nation until constituents voluntarily accede to it.

So, it is time to stop fighting and just do what is right … Referendum for all, not just Biafrans. 

If Arewa is tired of Nigeria, why not organize a Referendum for them instead of slaughtering fellow Nigerians? Arewaians are also old enough to decide whether to continue or not. Their “Quit Notice” given to Ndiigbo residing in the North through the conduit of Arewa Youths Consultative Form (AYCF) is a loud cry for Referendum and a strong desire to create Islamic Republic of Arewa. Why not grant it to them?

Nigerians, it is time to grow up and stop the threats of violence. Referendum for all!
