Nobel laureate, Prof Wole Soyinka, has said those calling for the sovereign nations of Biafra and Oduduwa have rights as free citizens to call for secession. In a statement, the professor criticised the use of force against the agitators of self- determination, insisting it is the responsibility of the leadership to persuade them.

@augustine: Now he knows better. When he was campaigning for Buhari, he never thought of him as an impending doom warming up to graze this country? He is one of the people who brought this woes cum cataclysm to us in the name of Buhari.
@whelsea: If you read about the history of Nigeria thoroughly, you’ ll know that this whole ” one Nigeria” is a big myth. It was bound for failure. Nigeria was a country created by the British strictly for financial purposes at that time.
@beemj: Thank you baba. We shall get to our promised land by the Grace of God. God didn’ t create Nigeria. Britain did.
Nigeria still remains the only country that Britain artificially created that hasn’ t divided. Separation is inevitable.
@pristine: The right to self- determination for ethnic nationalities is sacrosanct. No one must be forced to stay in any union much more a murderous union which projects a Jihadist Fulanization agenda at the expense of other ethnic nationalities. Free yourselves Southern Nigerians. NOW!
@oladiji: It was bound to happen, this cosmetic set up, this stupid charade clothed in filthy rags, called ” NIGERIA” had to gave in at some point, it was just a matter of time, a house built on the foundation of deceit cannot stand the storm of reality. We are now at the eye of the storm.
@Godwill: Are we all from the same source? Must we stay together? It is time for everyone to be focus. Is it a crime if I choose to bear my father’ s name and to develop the God given resources within my domain? No one has the right to encroach on family land.
@gloduchess: At this rate anyone that wants to go should be able allowed to go. A union that is not working should break up so that everyone can have peace.
