According to a study, the Igbo population is believed to be over 42 million people. While the number of people protesting in the streets does not even come close to this level, What hope do we have that those who aren't protesting will vote for Biafra's exit?
You will agree with me that the Igbos have more investments in other states than in their own. So, when it comes time to vote, how can we be certain that they will not choose their enterprises before freedom?
What are the ramifications of a failed referendum for Igbos and other Nigerians? That is the question posed by this essay. Will this result in a new round of marginalisation of the Southeast region? Would the South ever be considered for the presidency? These are significant questions.
One thing is certain: the agitators would never admit to having lost the referendum. The struggle would go on. They would point the finger at the process's transparency. If the referendum is held, I do not believe the Igbos will accept a loss.
I'm begging the federal government to do things differently this time around. If the Igbos stay, it indicates that they feel Nigeria can be restored. Let us start again and rebuild our country from the ground up. It is critical that we examine the country's founding principles. Let it be something we create with our own hands, rather than something handed to us from outside Nigeria.
Finally, those who oversaw the referendum should be honoured and recognised. This is the only way to achieve eternal serenity. All of this can lead to a strong Nigeria. If at all feasible, a selfless leader like Nnamdi Kanu should be given the opportunity to lead Nigeria.
What do you think would happen if Nigeria granted the referendum and the Igbos voted to remain? Please leave your thoughts and share them with others.
