Biafra Is A Lost Cause, Restructuring Is The Answer To Agitations – Fayose

SHARE:



Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has called for the total restructuring of the country, noting that moves to split the country is already too late to materialize.

Fayose was responding to Wednesday’s meeting between the governors of the South-East states and the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.

He said the meeting had provided a useful platform which all Igbos must take advantage of to advance their cause in Nigeria.

He appealed to the Federal Government to allow political solutions to agitations by Nigerians as against the use of brute force, saying he remained “committed to the call for full and total restructuring of Nigeria through dialogue and negotiation because it is too late for Nigeria to disintegrate.”

In the statement issued in Ado Ekiti on Thursday by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, Fayose said he was “particularly glad that South-East governors have come to the realisation that they cannot ignore their own in times like this as agitation is normal and must not be ignored, although the approach should be handled with caution.”

He blamed the actions and utterances of President Muhammadu Buhari for the agitations going on in the country.

The governor said, “The father figure of this country is President Buhari and if his language does not represent unity, there will be agitations like we are witnessing now.

“A father figure rallies even the bad boys in his house. The utterances and actions of Buhari when he became President were against the unity of this country.

“How can a president say that he will only attend to the needs of those who gave him 97 per cent vote and neglect others who didn’t vote for him?

“For Nigeria to move forward and in unity; there must be no sectionalism, there must be no oppression and there must be justice and equity.”

Fayose also commended northern leaders for intervening to get the Arewa youths’ quit notice against the Igbos in the North withdrawn without necessitating the arrest or detention of anyone.

While expressing optimism that the same could be achieved by the Igbo leaders, he warned that arresting or re-arresting Kanu “may be counter-productive as it may be perceived as vilification of the entire South-East geopolitical zone, not necessarily Kanu as a person”.
