Biafra- The leader of the Arewa Youth Council, AYC, said, The struggle for an independent state has been the core target of the southeastern part of the country. This struggle has lasted for more than 35 years yet nothing has been achieved. It is quite obvious that they have a failed aim. Moreover, they are not seeking power legally they are going directly and always trying to causing violence just for power.
They have struggled just in vain because what they couldn’t achieve back then in the late 90s they cannot achieve it now. The so-called Biafran youths are fighting and struggling for what they didn’t know how it came about. They joined just for the sake of crowed influence.
Even other parts of the country that wants to separate haven’t caused violence like those of the Biafrans have caused. My advice to the Biafran youths is that they should keep off concerning this struggle for power. They should be concerned about their own personal affairs and allow the elderly ones to continue, then if successful that’s good.
Staying at home shouting Biafra can neither promote anything nor make it to become a reality. It was a fault from the hands of the Igbos, they started with violence in the first place that’s why the Nigerian government has relented in approving their territory. If only they can be humble and sort out with the federal government of Nigeria, then they can have their goal achieved.
The holding of unlawful meetings and gatherings should be completely stopped. They have been tagged as a proscribed group by the federal government. As such all their activities are not approved by the federal government of Nigeria.
