BIAFRA: We Are Ready For Discussion – Northern Elders

On May 20, 2017 211 Comments

The Northern Elders Forum (NEF) have announced their readiness to join the ongoing discussion on restructuring Nigeria or supporting secession of South East.

The group said claims by South East leaders that they are sabotaging efforts to restructure the nation is untrue and that South East leaders are likely feeding on assumption.

This statement was made by the spokesperson of NEF, Professor Ango Abdullahi during an interview with The Sun newspaper. Abdullahi said: “You see the issue of restructuring is one of the fundamental issues that shape Nigerian history from 1914 up to 1960.

“In fact, we are not aware of any sabotage, may be the South East leaders were working on assumption.

“But if restructuring will save Nigeria, I think it is a matter that affects every Nigerian including those in the North and we are ready to engage in it to correct the anomalies in Nigeria starting from 1914.”

While reacting to the agitation in the South East for Biafra, Abdullahi said: “You see, the issue of Biafra is all part of the discussion of restructuring Nigeria.

“Yes, if Biafra means negotiations, yes, it’s all a matter of discussion, if it means Igbo want to have a country of their own separate from Nigeria, it means a matter of discussion and we are prepared for the discussion.

“This is all I have been saying that if Nigerians are tired of staying together, they should be prepared to accept divisions instead of remaining in agony and disappointment of one another.

“You see, what I am saying is that every Nigerian should be able to speak his opinion about the state of the country, and the country has laws.

“If it is discovered that the law of a country is violated, that some somebody has gone beyond his fundamental rights, the law is very clear on this.

“What perhaps government is concerned about is that violence was part of Kanu’s agitation, to realize his dream by force, I think that is what government is trying to tackle to my understanding.

“So if Kanu is talking about Biafra, he is free to talk about Biafra and everybody is free to talk about his understanding of the Nigerian state.

“We are always talking that the Nigerian state is not working and how can we make it to work? And if the best option, is to call for separate countries, why not?

“Well, if you read our communiqué in Kano recently, we categorically stated that the Northern Elders Forum is prepared to engage in any discussion with any group that is supporting restructuring of Nigeria, so, this means that we are fully supporting restructuring.”

    Because we southerners have the fear of GOD and can’t hurt fellow human beings because of positions and so far have been keeping the unity of the country,you northerners have been killing our leaders without the fear of GOD,and thought you people are wise,it’s a pity and shame on your race

  2. Uzoma N. Okezie says:

    Who are these bunch of jokers that call themselves Northern Elders? What section of the Constitution created them? Who elected them into what office? Why do they think that they are relevant? Arrant Nonsense.

  3. Sire Berry says:

    Instead of them to think of how Nigeria can make them president. So that we can trust them again. The greed in them won’t let them have peace. Am Yoruba. The reality of biaffra depends on south south which south have denied them. Greedy fools. They said they are creative. When u guys live Nigeria. U will see creativity among other tribe. The business they do is it lesser biaffra population that will buy it. The rubbish goods they produce that do not meet global standards.

    Biafffra

    • Sire Berry says:

      talking about business. what do u tink is the reason why ur business are moving in nigeria. u guys dont tink beyond the box. nigeria is one of the most populous black nation. so whatever business u do. people will buy. whats is igbo population. are u guys up to 20 million? keep producing goods in biaffra and ur 20 million population will patronise. tahts if they have d money. double coincidence of goods. ur goods dont meet global standard.

    • Sire Berry says:

      we yorubas we dont about religion. we are flexible in both ways. God knows who serves him. so igbos u guys should tink outside the box and set standards before ur fellow brothers will risk their life for biaffra the second time.

    • Sire Berry says:

Or u have forgotten that we were slaves wen we fought for independence from colonial masters. U guys are slaves to be factual. Until u fight pay with blood. Then ur children will be free. Not u

    • Sire Berry says:

      When isrealites were in Egypt as slaves. God helped them out of slavery to promise land. I pray biaffrans story will be like that. Cos seriously I pity these agitators a lot. I wish I am president I would given u guys ur freedom without looking back. Lol

  4. Sire Berry says:

    Biaffrans should be freed. They have nothing to the economy of Nigeria. They will become a land locked country without south. I wonder what a landlocked conurty to be great. No sea or ocean for import nd export. No majour river. Non fertile land. No land mass. Yet biaffra.

  5. Ikechukwu Okolo says:

  8. Adigwe Solomon says:

    Let me tell argument people: all these things happening in Nigeria to day, it’s because of the innocent Biafra blood that Nigeria wrested. Now the consequences has came in heavily

  9. Chijioke Lasbrey says:

  11. Chris John says:

    Discuss what?.Are you answering the same surname with Biafra? .Are you tired of war now that Biafra is ready to correct their little past mistakes in war?.Is naija no longer ur inheritance? .The best and lasting solution in naija is for every region or tribes to have a country of their own,GOD Almighty did not made naija to be a country that’s why HE made everything differences in language, climate, attire,customs and traditions,religions and beliefs, characters,etc.
    “Unity in diversity”, is it not so deceitful????
