Azikiwe, who sees many benefits in a united Nigeria, urges Northerners to embrace one Nigeria and allow them to negotiate the reasons for the secession plan. Azikiwe, stated that secession would have many negative consequences for both the south and the north, because the northerners would lose access to the sea if they broke up.
