Northern Group, Calling For Exit Of Igbos, Writes Osinbajo; Asks Him To Allow Bi by shaddoww: 12:10pm On Jun 19, 2017
The coalition of northern youth groups that recently gave Igbos resident in Northern Nigeria three months ultimatum to vacate the region has urged Acting President Yemi Osinbajo to allow Biafran secessionists succeed through peaceful means.
The group, in an open letter to the acting president, urged him to take “steps to facilitate the actualization of the Biafran nation in line with the principle of self-determination as an integral part of contemporary customary international law.”
The coalition commended Mr. Osinbajo for initiating series of discussions with leaders from the north and south-east. The signatories, however, said they believe the talks would not yield any positive results.
The letter, which was signed by five leaders of the group and sent to PREMIUM TIMES on Monday, said the principle of self-determination has, since World War II become a part of the United Nations Charter which states in Article 1(2), that one of the purposes of the UN is “to develop friendly relations among nations based on respect for the principle of equal rights and self-determination of peoples”.
“We submit that this protocol envisages that people of any nation have the right to self-determination, and although the Charter did not categorically impose direct legal obligations on member States; it implies that member States allow agitating or minority groups to self-govern as much as possible,” they said.By
