Nigeria: Government Must Halt Pro-Biafra Protests - Hon Rotimi Makinde

Honourable Rotimi Makinde, a former member of the House of Representatives has lent his voice to the burning issue of Pro-Biafra protests currently going on all over major cities in the world. According to Makinde, the federal government must halt the pro-Biafra protests as according to him, it is politically motivated.

Speaking on the issue, Makinde said “As a patriotic Nigerian, I condemn in strong terms the potential threat to Nigeria’s unity as a result of the activities of some pro-Biafra groups, which I believe is politically motivated by some treacherous individuals.

“Nigerians have put behind them the ugly memories of 1967 to 1970; Nigeria was the theatre of a cruel and bloody civil war that is commonly known as Biafra War. The conflict allegedly originated from internal crisis such as tribalism and political failures of the civil government after the independence, as well from external influences by the ex-colonial powers. The war, which ended with Biafra surrender, confirmed the military as holder of power starting a long period of political dominance in Nigeria history.

“Unfortunately, those who are currently behind the protests are youths who have little or no idea of what the war cost Nigerians as well as the collateral damage the country suffered as a result of the 30 months war. Although I believe very strongly that the campaign was being driven by just a few people, though it is true that, majority of the Igbo people do not share this secessionist view.”

Allow them to protest so far it is not violent. Any violent protest should be met with necessary actions from the law enforcement agents. With time, they will stop their agitation. Releasing a criminal to the protesters is going to promote crime.

No violence prepare a bill for a voting referendum to the national assembly to conduct an election to see those who are for and against leaving or staying in Nigeria. Many countries of the world did just that peacefully. God bless us all.
