Ex-presidential aspirant backs Biafra, Yoruba Nation agitation

Former Nigeria presidential aspirant Adamu Garba says those agitating for sovereign countries of Biafra and Yoruba Nation have the right to do so.

Featuring Wednesday night on Trust TV’s Daily Politics, Garba said there was nothing wrong in creating another republic in Nigeria, but cautioned that it must be with a constitutional backing.

His words: “Russia had a similar case similar to Indonesia. Now, if you go to Russia. There are 82 different states in Russia; 22 of these states are like mini countries. The president is elected by their constituency and then Moscow now validates that this guy is the president.

“What stops us from deploying this solution? If Biafrans say they need Biafra, what is wrong in having a Biafra republic in the Federal Republic of Nigeria? What is wrong in having the Oduduwa republic in the Federal Republic of Nigeria? What is wrong in having an Islamic party in Borno? There is nothing wrong with that. We have different Islamic parties in Islamic countries.

“If you say you’re going to form an Islamic party and create the government, create and make the governor, but you have to assent to the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“When you do that, you find out that you’re isolating the problem from where it is and bringing about long term stability.”

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that in recent times, calls for secession have heightened, especially in the south-east and south-west regions of the country, with agitators alleging that their regions have been unfairly treated by the federal government.
