-Ohaneze Ndigbo may have finally bowed to pressure from the Indigenous People of Biafra by setting a time frame for the break up of Nigeria if the Federal Government continues to pay a deaf ear to the restructuring of the country.
-This was contained in a statement issued and delivered to newsmen by the President General of Ohaneze Ndigbo, John Nnia Nwodo when he led a delegation of the Igbo Socioculutural group to comiserate with the people and government of Benue State over the killings that occurred in two local government areas of the state following the armed Fulani herdsmen invasion.
-He insisted that if Nigeria is not restructured soon, it shall cease to exist in the next ten years.
He said: “I have never seen a country practice democracy and does not respect the voice of the people. We need to restructure Nigeria now or in the next seven years, Nigeria will be extinct.
“Restructuring is a national imperative. How can we have a security council consisting of a people from a particular section of the country? It is not fair. Are we a conquered people?
“I recall that the global terrorist index rated herdsmen as the fourth most dangerous terrorist group in the world but the federal government has continued to look the other way as they continue to wreak havoc in the country. Nigerians must rise and fight against tyranny in our land.
“If politicians fail to address these issues and fail to restructure the country, a time will come when Nigerians will dance on their graves.
The truth is that the people of Nigeria are tired of this country. “We must commend Governor Samuel Ortom for his uncommon courage in the face of adversity, he has shown that he is a civilian general.’’
