The Media and Publicity Secretary of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Comrade Emma Powerful, has called for dissolution of Nigeria.
Powerful said those clamouring for the restructuring of Nigeria should have a rethink because the nation has totally collapsed, stressing that repackaging an already crumbled country would cause more harm than good.
The IPOB spokesman also flayed the apex socio cultural group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo for compounding the suffering of their people by not speaking against injustice.
Powerful, in a chat with Punch, said: “Referendum is the will of the people. No right-thinking, intelligent being would subscribe to the ludicrous notion of one Nigeria unless that person is a thief, suffering from identity crisis or lacking in self-confidence that can only hide by belonging to a wider Nigeria. If Ohanaeze Ndigbo is in doubt as to what our people truly desire, they should conduct a plebiscite.
“Restructuring is not a panacea for the ills bedeviling Nigeria. The only solution is outright dissolution. Restructuring is a product of a flawed intellectual argument devoid of common sense and rational thinking. You cannot fuse together divergent, competing and often irreconcilable value systems into one monolithic geopolitical space.
“Ohanaeze Ndigbo has outlived its usefulness. An organisation that claims to represent the interest of the people but is actively engaged in undermining the collective aspiration of the same people it claims to be working for should not exist. Ohanaeze Ndigbo is an organisation that has soiled its hands in the blood of the innocent. Nnia Nwodo (Ohanaeze President-General), Gov. Dave Umahi (Ebonyi State) and Gov. Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia State) are the brains behind Operation Python Dance II”.
