Over the past few weeks, we have been hearing about demands for the break up of Nigeria. Many of them are claiming they are being marginalized by the government and as such, they can’t remain as Nigerians anymore.
As we all know, Nnamdi Kanu has been constantly demanding the establishment of Biafra and of recent, popular Yoruba activist, Sunday Igboho recently declared that the Yoruba nation is no longer another Nigeria while agitating for the Oduduwa Republic.
So also, a former Niger Delta Militant, Asari Dokubo also announced the establishment of the Biafra customary government.
As a result, a lot of people have been reacting. Some have been in support of the demands, while others have been against them.
One of those people who have come out to speak against them is Femi Falana. Femi Falana is a respected senior Advocate of Nigeria. He said the likes Of Nnamdi Kanu, Sunday Igboho, and Asari Dokubo are short-sighted.
He said Nigeria is the most populated black nation on earth. According to him, those calling for the breakup of the country are only transferring National oppression to themselves.
In addition, Femi Falana said Nnamdi Kanu, Sunday Igboho are the rest are calling for separation yet, they don’t talk about education for their People in the republic they intend to set up. He said none of them is talking about the kind of economy that will promote prosperity in the republic of their dreams.
What do you have to say about this, do you agree with Femi Falana that Sunday Igboho and the rest are short-sighted?
