Northern Women Protest In Abuja, Demand Referendum For South-East To Choose by Le124(m): 1:18pm On Jun 05
A group of women under the aegis of the Amalgamation of Northern Women Associations, on Saturday, demanded a referendum to allow Biafran agitators to chose whether or not to remain in Nigeria.

The coordinator of the group, Hadiza Adamu, spoke on behalf of other members, during a protest in Abuja, on Saturday.

She said, “Nigerian History has shown that women carry the heavy burden of war and acts of insurrections and terrorism. We have gone through it from 1967 to 1971, our men died and left us with the children to cater for out of nothing, other men that survived simply moved on but we never moved on.

The aftermath of the war and the sufferings left lifetime scars in our hearts and on our bodies. It is for this reason that we (have) come together today and say we don’t want another war, another insurrection.

We, therefore, unanimously call on President Muhammadu Buhari as the leader and father of the country; and the leadership of the National Assembly, President of the Senate, Dr. Ahmad Lawal; and the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila; to immediately call for a referendum in the country.

“Let people choose to live in peace in Nigeria or leave, any other group or nationality that wants to secede to exercise their rights of self-determination like the South-East has been agitated for decades to be allowed to leave Nigeria peacefully, without resorting to a second civil war.

Today the Igbo nation has turned the entire South-East to almost a war zone, northerners irrespective of their tribes are no longer safe, states’ infrastructures are no longer safe, service personnel from police to army are not safe, INEC offices and other symbols of democracy in the country are being destroyed on daily basis, our husbands that go to do business in South-East no longer return home safe, our political leaders who travel to the South-East on national assignments are assassinated in broad daylight.”

Every region should be allowed to choose what they want in this contraption. Sadly though, this is not the solution to the issues in this country - Nigerians we enjoy lawlessness and therefore the rich and powerful will always Lord it over the poor and weak and therefore the vicious circle continues in the smaller regions (new countries agitated for)

The power brokers won't allow this to happen.

A whole lot of happenings these days are just calculated distractions for the masses to ponder on.

Constitution review...... Scam

Northern women protest...... Scam

We better wake up from these planned sakamaje from these power drunks ruling US.

Why can't people choose their own destiny?

Almagamation doesn't mean they can't propose to leave when they are tired.

Nigerian government prefer to kill them than to allow them choose if to leave or not

Animals in human skin. The ruler and his online supporters

Thinking you can insult the Igbo man forever and keep him down because he lost a war that other countries like Britain helped you win is the greatest undoing of the Lugardian contraption. If dissolution cannot be done peacefully for others to decide where they belong, because you fulanis said so, then be ready to sleep with your eyes opened forever.

The day a window for referendum will open in Nigeria will mark the end of this shithole.

Like I always tell people, the only set of people happy with this contraption are those benefiaries of corruption.

The truth is, every common Nigerian is tired of this country Nigeria, whether North or South, only our leaders who see us as raw materials to their success remain hell bent to the unity of this unholy matrimony called Nigeria, it's not Hausa vs Igbo or Yoruba, it's our leaders who don't have other means of living except milking us dry

Now is the time to go for the bastard elites that refuses to the disintegration of Nigeria. From across all regions, all the politicians and elites that continue shouting against the division of Nigeria should sacrifice themselves for it. Enough of the killings of the suffering masses. The evil politicians and elites have not been able to safe guard the masses, why then should they insist the evil system continue to endure? Black people are full of evil.

sad

You really spoke well but this northerners generally dont think at all,always speak as it affects you only. I like your concerns but became angry when you started mentioning northerners being casualty really annoying.

You want me to mention to you the victims of your so called boko haram,bandits,fulanis herdsmen and kidnappers they are mostly igbos if you dont know.

Which national assignment,how many igbos were in the north or south west in the constitution review,be deceiving yourselves. You will see the truth you will not speak.

It is no longer 1963 ooooh,beware do not say you were not told. They do not want to retariate let igbos go.

You all are hypocrites

You are the type of Nigerians who tend to slow the process disintegration. The issue of the shithole called Nigeria has gone beyond the matter of region. It is every ethnicity in Nigeria should decide for themselves. I am for Republic of Igbo land.
