2023: Northern governors planning to break-up Nigeria – Ohanaeze
The apex Igbo socio-cultural group in Nigeria, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide on Tuesday said that Northern governors are planning to break-up Nigeria.
The Igbo group’s comment comes one day after Northern Governors’ Forum rejected the position of the Southern Governors Forum that power must go to the South in 2023.
In a statement signed by its Secretary-General, Mazi Okechukwu Osiguzoro the group described the move by the NGF as ‘weakness’ towards sustaining the unity of the country.
The statement read in part; “Ohanaeze Ndigbo worldwide maintains that attempts to jettison the rotational presidency in 2023, and the North insisting to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari will be unfavorable and weakness towards sustaining the unity and stability in the country as it will favor the declarations of Oduduwa and Biafra nations by 2024.”
“Northern Governors’ miscalculation on 2023 and meandering on blind excitements of opposing the position of southern Governors’ standpoints has put the Northern Governors as exponents of Nigeria’s breakup.”
“If another Northerner succeeds President Buhari in 2023, he/she might not be able to be the superintendent over the affairs of the country as Nigeria might face brutal challenges from secessionist groups with full backing up from ethnic groups as a result of a revolt against the injustice against South and excesses of the North.”
