BIAFRA| Obasanjo Begs For Dialogue, Says Civil War Not An Option

by on March 21, 2016
 

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has asked Nigerians to understand the need for Nigerians to embrace peace and dialogue instead of beating drums of war. He also said that the nation needs better communication and not to go on another round of civil war.

The former President was reacting to the spate of protests and demonstrations by pro-Biafra agitators in some parts of South-east and Lagos recently, adding that; “Our differences could only be addressed when issues are discussed instead of going to war.”

“We do not need another civil war. We had fought one before. I was part of it.”

 “I saw with my eyes. I heard with my ears. I smelled with my nose. What we need is better communication. And I am here to communicate with you.”

He further stated that; “What I enjoy most is the cultural diversity. Earlier in the week, I was in Benue State and I enjoyed the cultural dance. Since I arrived here yesterday I have enjoyed the cultural dances. What we need to address is how to reduce unemployment, how to reduce poverty, and how to hold our leaders accountable to their promises.

    He who has seen where the Thunder Struck will never condemn and dawn consequences of his goddess at “Kosho.” Most Biafran youth should go and ask their aged parent what civil war look like.

    Honestly, I think a referendum should be peacefully reached on this issue, if after more than 40years since the civil war, there has not been a proper integration of the Biafrans into Nigeria, then for peace sake let this people become an independent Nation. I don’t see how this should call for war. Biafra is an ideology, it cannot be handled by war, except you’ll decide that all Biafrans must die. Like OBJ has said, let’s negotiate, let Nigeria not ignore these protest.
