The apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo on Friday warned Nigerians to be wary of another civil war, saying “the country is only heading for implosion as long as equity and fairness is denied some sections of the country.”
The President General of Ohanaeze, Chief Nnia Nwodo who stated this in a statement, said that in as much as northern Nigeria decides to be unreasonable and realistic, “this country can never get better.”
Nwodo, who was reacting to the Tuesday election of the ninth National Assembly leadership in a statement through his Special Adviser on Media, Chief Emeka Attamah, said that Nigerians should beware of another civil war. He said:
“There is no future for Nigeria. As long as the north decides to be unreasonable and realistic, this country can never get better.
“The country is only heading for implosion as long as equity and fairness is denied some sections of the country.
“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?
“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.”
