A lawyer, and the Publicity Secretary, Akwa Ibom State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr Ini Ememobong has urged the federal government to conduct a referendum for South-Easterners to determine their fate in Nigeria.
Ememobong described the entity called Nigeria as a union which each party has every right to depart whenever it feels like not being treated well.
According to him; Nigeria is just like marriage, there is no need forcing somebody to stay in a marriage if the person considers it unproductive. And the marriage act says that a divorce can be granted, separation can be given, if the petition alleges that the other party has behaved in a way that makes it impossible for both of them to remain in the marriage.
Speaking with Daily Sun, the PDP chieftain said; “If the South-Easterners have ample evidence that they have not been treated fine in this marriage, excuse them! I don’t even know why you should be forcing someone to stay.
The Great Britain feels:’ Look! We are not too sure of what is happening here, we are taking too much of the pressures from Europe, can you excuse us?’ That doesn’t make them enemies. Ireland said let’s conduct a referendum. Let’s conduct a referendum, if the South- Easterners feel that they are not treated well, let them go!
You see, my fear is that with this forced marriage, forced divorce would come someday when that issue of interest has been depleted. Anybody that feels uncomfortable in the union called Nigeria should be excused. Let the zone go and take its deserved rest.
