I think both parties have a lot to gain by staying together. Neither have in abundance resources of the other.
Do you think each party can survive independently without the other? Take a cue from the separation of Sudan and South Sudan
Happy Biafra day to my fellow Biafrans. No movement, so everyone sit_at_home. Well i don't think they can't survive without each other. Even if Biafra splits and this spirit of greed prevails they'll still end up having problems. But surely Nigeria needs a larger percentage of Biafra more than Biafra does.
The Unity of Nigeria is non negotiable. Sometimes I wonder if we have fully carried out a SWOT analysis of the impact of breakup in Nigeria. A breakup would leave this nations vulnerable to infestation by the external forces from other countries. It would take a very long time for the dust to settle and by then we would have regretted the decision a 1000 times over.
It is better for us to sit down and play a game of chess for all geo-political zones involved. Everyone should come together and agree on the way forward. Shekina.
Please if Biafra wants to leave. They should be allowed to. They are no longer enjoying the union and its time for them to move on. Whatever consequences it brings i'm sure they can handle. Anyways as for me, united we stand Divided we fall.
First of all, the Igbo's are not interested in anybody's oil.
Biafra is for those that are interested in building a prosperous future for themselves and that future will not be dependent on oil.
While it will be achieved thru diplomacy, those that feel they know how to fight should understand that this is 2017 and not 1966.
Britain itself is in disarray and will not be able to spoon feed and hold any one's hands this time around.
They say want to build a future for themselves and all. But the question is. What have they done for their states? How well have they developed it as Governors, local government chairmen, senators, house of Reps etc abi has the Nigerian government also stopped them from taking care of their own? Are they even United? How much do they love themselves to work as one? Until then.......
