Dream Of One Nigeria Fading Fast, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Tells FG

Ohanaeze Ndigbo has warned the Buhari administration that the dream of one Nigeria is fast fading under its watch.

The apex Igbo socio-cultural group made this disclosure on Thursday, April 15.

President General of the group, Professor George Obiozor, stated this during a press conference in Enugu State.

He warned the federal government to rethink, reflect and act fast before the prophecy that Nigeria won’t stay together as one country in no distant time becomes a national reality and a national tragedy foretold.

Professor Obiozor said: “Sub-national consciousness or ethnocentric nationalism, which is a dangerous form of nationalism to national unity and empires, has taken over Nigeria; the dream of Nigeria unity is receding and fading fast with violence, crises, and conflicts.

“The result of all these is the rise of ethnic militias, agitation for secession, self-determination, insurgency, banditry among others. These are historical protracted and unwinnable wars by nations and empires and there will be no exception.

“The federal government must therefore learn a lesson from history by not fighting an unwinnable war against nationalism but seek possible peaceful options that are the only solution that guarantees national unity and peaceful co-existence,” Obiozor said.
