As we all know, Biafra, officially the Republic of Biafra, was a secessionist state in West Africa that existed from May 1967 to January 1970 during the Nigerian Civil War.
You will all agree with me that over the years, secessionists has been fighting for Biafra to stand alone as a country due to one reason or the other. So because of that, i decided to put up this article, to outline two reasons why Biafra can never be materialize in Nigeria.
1. Politicians Won’t Support Them. Recall that the 1999 constitution declared Nigeria as a federation, and as such, for another country to exist from Nigeria, the constitution must be amended by the Nigerian lawmakers.
And as we all know, majority of the Nigerian lawmakers are in support of one Nigeria and as such, the constitution won’t be reviewed.
2. Lastly, Igbos In The South-west Don’t Support Biafra. Many Igbos in the South-west don’t support Biafra due to the facts that they already have a lot of establishment and investment in the South-west, which they are not ready to let go all in the name of a divided country.
In conclusion, Igbos, IPOB, MASSOB and Mazi Nnamdi Kanu should just forget the possibility of Biafra and embrace one Nigeria in other for peace to continue in the country.
