‘Nigeria cease to exist if we don’t restructure now’ – Afenifere leader warns
Afenifere leader, Ayo Adebanjo said anyone opposed to the restructuring of Nigeria is an enemy of the country.
Speaking in Abuja at an event to commemorate 50 years after the Nigerian Civil War on Thursday, May 25, 2017, Adebanjo noted that except the country is restructured now, it would collapse.
He revealed another side to the Biafra agitation in Nigeria
“The question of Biafra is not about separation,” Adebanjo said.
“The question is how we want to leave in peace on agreed terms. Anybody opposed to restructuring is an enemy of Nigeria. That is why I put it to northerners that are opposed to restructuring, you cannot be more northerner than the late Sardauna who was not opposed to it.
“Our problem remains the military. The military did not allow us to settle our problems.
“Restructure now or Nigeria will not exist,” he concluded.
Earlier, former president Olusegun Obasanjo had advised Nigerians to avoid all events that led to the Nigerian Civil War.
Acting President Yemi Osinbajo noted that Nigeria is better as one nation.
