Chief Ralph Uwazuruike, the leader of the Movement for the Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), on Monday says that Nigeria would break into s*x (6) different republics before 2023.
According to him, the 6 geo-political zones would metamorphose into 6 republics, saying that South-East becoming the long agitated New Biafra, while South-South becomes Niger-Delta Republic, just as South-West and North-Central become Oduduwa and Middle-Belt Republics respectively, leaving North-East and North-West as Arewa Republic.
Uwazuruike noted that; “the obvious lack of trust in the relationship or union between the northern and southern Nigeria is too inexplicable that Nigerians cannot continue to co-exist as one nation.”
He further contended that; “the faulty amalgamation of the northern and southern Nigeria in 1914 which expired since January 2014, also made it imperative that the country must surely break up in the near future, based on Biafran constitution which provided that any section of the country that is dissatisfied with the union will be at liberty to secede.”
Consequently, he urged Biafra leaders to “ensure that the federation is run in such a way that the citizens would be happy at all times and willing to belong to Biafra without being forced to do so.” Insisting that “it was only in a corrupt country like Nigeria where illegality thrives that citizens are forced to live together and always show allegiance to the state”, adding, “we do not deserve Biafra if the emerging republic cannot be better than Nigeria.”
