Don’t Ignore Oduduwa, Biafra Agitations – Fani-Kayode Warns




Nnamdi Kanu

A former Minister of Aviation in Nigeria, Femi Fani-Kayode, has warned that ignoring Oduduwa and Biafra agitations is not advisable.

Naija News reports that leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, who is also the Director of Radio Biafra, is agitating for the Republic of Biafra. His group, the IPOB which is also seeking to break away from Nigeria had since been proscribed by the Nigerian government led by President Buhari.

Like Nnamdi Kanu, a British from the southeastern part of Nigeria is agitating for the Biafra Republic, some Yorubas from the southwestern part of the country are also agitating for the Oduduwa Republic.

Reacting to this in a tweet on the micro-blogging site, Twitter, Fani-Kayode said: Never in the history of post-civil war Nig. has the agitation for Oduduwa & Biafra been as strong as it is today.

“Never have our independent celebrations been drowned by the cry for the dismemberment & Balkanisation of Nig. in this way. We ignore & dismiss these agitations at our peril,” the former minister tweeted.

In a related development, Fani-Kayode has lamented that Nigeria may not be one for much longer.

Naija News reports that the Ex-Minister who made this comment on the micro-blogging site, Twitter, cited “the cracks are widening” and “rising anger” in the country as the reasons for his claim that Nigeria may not be one for much longer.

This online news platform recalls that Nigeria marked her 60th anniversary on Thursday, October 1. In the commemoration of Nigeria’s Independence Day celebration, Fani-Kayode said he was “constrained” to ask if Nigeria’s unity can be sustained.

The former minister tweeted: “Today we celebrate 60 years of independence from our former colonial masters. I wish my compatriots happy independence day but I am constrained to ask the following: can our “unity” be sustained? The cracks are widening& anger is rising. Nigeria may not be one for much longer.”
