“One Nigeria” is an empty slogan – Kanu insists Lugard can’t determine ‘popular will of the people’

In a tweet on his official handle on Friday evening, Kanu described the slogan ‘one Nigeria’ as an empty expression.

Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has said the decision for citizens to remain or quit a nation is determined by the “popular will of the people”.

In a tweet on his official handle on Friday evening, Kanu described the slogan ‘one Nigeria’ as an empty expression.

He pointed out that the 1914 amalgamation of the Northern and Southern protectorate by Lord Lugard and his wife, Flora Shaw was a business decision that cannot determine one’s move to stay in Nigeria.

“#OneNigeria can neither be based on a business decision made by a Lugard, a Flora or any other foreigner, nor by the force of a tribalized @HQNigerianArmy or by the empty slogan that Nigeria is one.

“The decision to stay in one nation is a matter of the popular will of the people”, Kanu tweeted.

Meanwhile, in his reaction to an alleged comment made by the Zamfara State Governor, Bello Muhammad Matawalle that “Southerners should not expect protection if the killing of Northerners continues in the South”, Kanu said the comment could trigger action for urgent disintegration of Nigeria.

Kanu added that “The only way the South can respond to this sort of potent THREAT is to make Nigeria’s DISSOLUTION more urgent.”
