Restructuring Not the Solution- MASSOB

Movement for the Actualisation of the Soverieng State of Biafra, MASSOB has disagreed with those calling for the restructuring of the country, saying the only solution to unending agitations is for the Federal Government to convene sovereign national conference where the various ethnic nationalities are allowed to determine their future. Sunny Okereafor, MASSOB Director of Information stated this while announcing the plans for the celebration of MASSOB’s 18th anniversary on September 13 in Aba, Abia State, on Sunday.
His words: “Restructuring is not the solution to the increasing agitations by several ethnic nationalities in Nigeria. Restructuring is akin to scratching the surface of the problems.
“Igbo want Biafra; Yoruba want Oduduwa Republic, Boko Haram want Islamic republic and the Hausa/Fulani wants the status quo to be maintained because it is their favour and others want resource control. The question is what are you restructuring for?
“Every section of Nigeria had agreed that the federation isn’t workable; Fulani herdsmen are killing and raping our women with the federal government playing the ostrich, the north heads all the military and Para military agencies, oil producing communities live in abject poverty, grade A positions are only reserved for natives of certain parts of the country.
“Ndigbo have been relegated to second class citizens. In the kind of situation prevailing in Nigeria, a sovereign national conference is the only solution. The federal government should convene a sovereign national conference without further delay.”
