Breaking: ‘We Rather All Die, Than To Watch The Igbos Break Out From Nigeria’ – Northern Leaders Spit Fire

It was shocking, as Northern leaders on Wednesday, vowed to resist any move by the Southerners, to pressurize President Muhamamdu Buhari, to restructure or divide Nigeria.

During a meeting in Abuja, the Northern leaders, who were members of the 2014 National Conference, spoke on the platform of the Northern Delegates Forum, NDF.

According to the forum: “The North was not given fair representation in the Conference with 189 delegates, despite its landmass of 70 percent and 55 percent of the country’s population.

“Therefore, we were not happy with the report, and have come out with this second report and communiqué.”

Bashiru Dalhatu, who was a Minister of Power and Steel in the Gen. Sani Abacha government, while presenting his keynote address said: “The 2014 National Conference had 492 members and the North, which constitutes about 70 percent of the country’s landmass, and 55 percent of its population was allocated 189 delegates, while the South with only 30 percent of the landmass, and 45 percent of its population was given an incredible 305 delegates.

“This went against sensible demographics, law, and practice, which could have hardly been done in good faith. Certainly, it was designed to put in particular our delegates, and the North in general at a disadvantage.

“All attempts to get the President Goodluck Jonathan administration, including pleas by well meaning Nigerians who genuinely wanted a National Conference, to reflect the diversity and complexity of the Nigerian society, fell on deaf ears.”

The leaders also noted that it had become fashionable these days for all manner of people to clamour for the restructuring of Nigeria, along some undefined contours and outside in some cases, contrary to the existing constitutional order.

“To reiterate and maintain our position that the report of the confab is of questionable legal validity, the outcome of a process that lacks popular mandate or support, and major decisions were arrived at by undemocratic means or at variance with due process.

“To disassociate the NDF from any attempt by any group to seek to implement or force the Federal Government or any of its institutions to use the report of the Conference, under any guise for the purpose of restructuring Nigeria.

“To call upon any group of sponsors or individuals agitating for any form of restructuring of the federation, first and foremost, to respect the existing constitutional order and to seek to do so within the bounds and parameters stipulated under our constitution and law. To suggest otherwise would lead to chaos and anarchy,” the NDF said.



"The North wouldn't fold their hands and watch the Igbos leave Nigeria"........ Northern Leaders

"Going to war again with the Biafrans will be such a risky and dangerous step to take now that they have virtually everything it takes to destroy and wipe out the entire northern region under the shortest possible time. During the civil war these people had nothing at all but they still were able to hold on with their limited resources for three years and some months, therefore going down that same lane with them again will be such a risky and dangerous step to take now"...........General Yakubu Gowon

To borrow Viola's words on a certain lout..... Are Igbos now god to the Hausas that they can't go a day without discussing Igbos?
