Chief Nnia Nwodo, the President of Ohanaeze, has warned that with the current structural imbalance in the country, there is no future for Nigeria.
According to him, the country can never get better in as much as the north decides to be unreasonable.
“There is no future for Nigeria. As long as the north decides to be unreasonable and realistic, this country can never get better,” he said.
“The only solution is restructuring or the country will eventually hit the rocks. If not today, tomorrow. What does it cost to be fair and live in peace?
The President of the apex Igbo group noted that Nigeria is heading for implosion as long as equity and fairness is denied certain region/ethnicity in the country.
Nwodo’s statement came as a reaction to the current political structure in the country where almost all the head of the Executive, Legislature and Judiciary are all from the north and other region in the country, leaving the Igbo (one of the 3 biggest ethnic groups) with nothing.
The National Assembly election which was held last Tuesday, the presiding officers who emerged were from the North-East, Senate President Ahmed Lawan; and South-West, Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila.
“Certainly, nobody will blame anybody if emotion runs high and the thread holding the country becomes thin and snaps.”
“No condition is permanent in life. There are ominous signs and the clouds are gathering. Let the remaining generation that witnessed the Nigerian civil war recant and save the country from the cataclysm that will envelop her if the upcoming generation are allowed to inherit the callousness and wickedness pervading the land now. Nigerians beware of civil war,” Ohanaeze President said in a statement issued by Chief Emeka Attamah, his aide.
