Referendum In The South East Nigeria by Zetra7: 11:41am On Sep 10
For an international observer, how do you think a referendum will go in the South east part of Nigeria if given the opportunity?

Many trend showed huge numbers of Igbos will support the idea of their own country Nevertheless, many have also argued that a greater number will prefer to remain.

A research recorded less than 30 percent of the south westerners are really serious of having their own country..


Therefore, will like an honest opinion in percentage and rationale.

If you have a referendum now Igbo people will vote massively to leave (90%)
While in the south west the Yoruba will barely get 30% in support of leaving.
The loudest advocates of one Nigeria have always come from the west and historically they have been been collaborators of the men on horseback.

Yoruba's still believe Nigeria can work.I don't really blame them because they have never being persecuted for their ethnicity unlike igbos who have have being killed in millions just because they are Igbo..

What of Tiv, Idoma, Igala, Nupe, Urhobo, Gbagyi, Jukun, Chamba or Kanuri? Do they believe in One Nigeria or what should they do?
Re: Referendum In The South East Nigeria by Allsouls: 12:25pm On Sep 10
Igbos will vote 99% to leave Nigeria, even some Politicians in the east will join the moving tran. One told me that he can't stand alone but will join his people. Even Buhari knows that politicians one leg is in Nigeria the other in BIAFRA,
