Igbos Can Leave Nigeria Says Northern Elders Forum by Built2last: 10:11am On Jun 08
The Northern Elders Forum (NEF) says it has reviewed events and tendencies which suggest that the country is headed for more crises amid the calls for Biafra, security challenges, among others.

Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, Director, Publicity and Advocacy, in a statement on Monday observed that Nigerians now live in fear of violence and uncertain future.

NEF said the capacity of the Nigerian State to secure citizens, protect the country’s territorial integrity and resist violent assaults is weakening to the levels of making threats that have no impact.

The elders lamented that armed criminals have increased their audacious stranglehold on the country.

They added that irredentists are increasingly asserting their influence in the South East and some other parts.

Their statement said all Nigerians are paying the price of failure of two sets of leaders.

“At the national level, the administration appears to have lost the capacity to halt the gradual descent of the country into anarchy. Political leaders in the South East appear to have submitted to violence and terror of IPOB and ESN.”

“At the national level, the administration appears to have lost the capacity to halt the gradual descent of the country into anarchy. Political leaders in the South East appear to have submitted to violence and terror of IPOB and ESN.”


The NEF said it appeared the secession demand by Igbo represents the popular choice.

“This nation has had to fight a terrible war to preserve the country. The North had paid its dues in that war, as indeed it did in many ways throughout the history of the country.”

Baba-Ahmed noted that under the current circumstances, no Nigerian should welcome another war to keep the country together.

The Northern leaders said the region has more than enough challenges, admitting they recognize that violent secession by any part of Nigeria will compound the problems all citizens live with.

The Forum declared that: “If support for secession among the Igbo is as widespread as it is being made to look, and Igbo leadership appears to be in support of it, then the country should be advised not to stand in its way.”

Baba-Ahmed, however, said it will not be the best choice for the Igbo or other Nigerians to leave a country all toiled to build and have the responsibility to fix.

It will not help a country already burdened with failures on its knees to fight another war to keep the Igbo in Nigeria”, the statement added.

Isn't that what they have been asking for all this while?? The same Yorubas who have always insulted and abused the Igbos for wanting to leave have also seen the light and also now want to leave

Once Igbos leave Nigeria. Others will leave.

Igbos don't want war. They want dialogue and referendum. Peaceful exit. No one wants war

There is no need for war since the so called oil may become worthless before 2030

Akụkọ.
All other regions better stay put and find a way to make their Nigeria work.
In fact I will campaign for it after our exit.
We are not leaving Nigeria for it to collapse, we are not like that wicked employee that wishes for her previous company to collapse because she resigned.
I will advise all the ethic groups in Nigeria, the Yorubas, Tiv, Hausa, fulani etc to find a way and come together, put aside their differences and make Nigeria work. They should stop tribalism and ethnocentrism so that their country can move forward.
I will like my grand Children to meet and see Nigeria so that I can tell them "you see that failure of a country? Their backwardness was why we left"

So Yorubas, Hausa, Fulani, Ijaw, Bini, Tiv, Igala etc that read this comment should try and prove is wrong, that they can make Nigeria work without us. They should stay and build this nation to retain her status as the Giant of Africa after we leave.
Goodluck and God bless their Nigeria
All hail Biafra

Since they like Nigeria that much, they should stay put and enjoy it.
After leaving, our next mission is to help the Government of Nigeria keep, tight and seal whatever remains with them as one indivisible entity. That will be their last favour that we will be pleased to oblige

If only we can get another to take over this mantle from ipob and get into the business of agitation and self determination,it will be a big one for the Fg to handle.
Oduduwa agitation.
Biafra agitation.
I bet the MB will join in too when it gets to that level.
Then the political and traditional leaders of the regions will understand that this issue has gone beyond them.
