Dr. Otunba Gani Adams, the National Coordinator of the Oodua Peoples Congress(OPC), has called on the federal government of Nigeria to restructure the country in order to douse tension of agitation in every part of the nation.
The OPC leader equally used the opportunity to reveal that even the Yoruba youths which he is their leader, are seeking for a self-determination, “Yoruba’s are more in support of self-determination. They want self-determination on the basis of having their own nation. It is something that is very clear to everybody, Gani Adams told Dailysun.
Speaking further, he cautions those nursing the ambition of wiping out the entire Igbo race, he pointed out how the members of Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, were massacred during a peaceful protest in the present administration of President Muhammadu Buhari led APC government.
Adams stated that even OPC backs the Biafra agitation because it’s the right thing to do.
He said; “The youth who want to have a better society have the rights to clamour for self-determination.
“In as much as we are talking to our youths, I would be the last person that would ask the Igbo people to stop the agitation for the Republic of Biafra. It is their right for self-determination. Look at the population of the Igbo people now and they are the most vibrant and widely travelled Nigerians.
“When people are saying that they would crush the Igbo people the way they crushed them in 1967, I always laugh at them. The people you have now are not the Igbo of 1967 to 1970. We have a new Igbo society that is more organized and sophisticated.
“I was one of those that supported the release of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra(IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu. The crackdown on IPOB would not help matters because if they are determined for liberation, you cannot stop them no matter the force you use against them. So, I believe that the only way to resolves all these agitations is to go back to the Republican Constitution of 1963.
