- The Afenifere leader explains what he believes is the source of Nigeria’s problems
- Adebanjo proffers solutions to the problems facing the country
An Afenifere leader, Ayo Adebanjo, has disagreed with the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, for advocating for the secession of the southeast region in the country.
The elder statesman speaking at a conference held via the zoom on Thursday, January 14, said a breakup of the country is not the solution to the problem of Nigeria, The Tribune reported.
He recommended constitutional amendment as the answer to Nigeria’s challenges.
Adebanjo argued that the current Nigerian constitution gives so much power to the northern region of the country.
“I am in war with Nnamdi Kanu because I don’t want this country to break. Instead of thinking of break-up, we should tackle the root cause of the problem.
“The root cause of the problem is our constitution which is not a true reflection of the yearnings of all the people in the country."
The elder statesman said the constitution has inherent faults.
In another news, a group, Coalition of South East Professionals Network in Nigeria and Diaspora (CSEPNND) has called on the federal government to repatriate the Nnamdi Kanu, to face a case of an alleged treasonable felony.
Daily Sun reported that CSEPNND national president, Professor Madumere Chika, and national secretary, Anayo Uchemba, made the demand in a statement on Monday, January 11.
The group also condemned the claim made by IPOB's spokesman, Emma Powerful, who said the Department of State Service (DSS) sponsored its demand for Kanu’s repatriation.
In another news, Senator Rochas Okorocha, has called for a new political alliance in Nigeria ahead of the 2023 general elections to rescue the country.
