If they want a Biafra Republic, let them separate from the rest of Nigeria. The Igbo youth have started a revolution the Yoruba and Hausa youths have long be scared of facing. It will take such a revolution to CHANGE Nigeria. Jobs, education, quality of life has diminished in Nigeria. As a Social media influencer and community activist, I know that social media will take this into a new direction.
We have a freedom of speech and expression in the Nigerian constitution. The world will hear their VOICES. The youth own Nigeria. They have constantly been told by their teachers that they are the future of Nigeria but yet none are in government or gainfully represented.
These youth have no jobs nor will they see a pension. If they do, many may lose it to the same kind of thieves who stole the N10 billion Oyo state pension. The EFCC already destroyed that case with corruption in the civil service not dealt with. We only see the EFCC successfully prosecuting fraudulent youth. Many are stuck in Nigeria and then you complain they are resorting to Internet fraud, money rituals or brazen armed robberies as a means of survival.
Let us learn from Burkina Faso and Sudan. Northern and Southern Sudan are thriving separately. Even North Korea and South Korea are two totally different countries. This is not the Ojukwu era you President/Generals lived. This is their own era. Let them find their way. Free them.
Lets not forget that many Igbos were slaughtered in Northern Nigeria when the #BokoHaram insurgency started in 2009. Many perished in church explosions. #RIP to their people and families.
To the Biafrans, please say NO to violence.
It is well with you!
