Following the press statement released by Special Assistant, Media and Publicity to the Muhammadu Buhari, Garba Shehu on Sunday which revealed that IPOB is waging war against the Nigeria state internationally, some Northerners have urged the Nigerian government to allow Igbos(Biafrans) be on their own if that will solve the problem of the country.
“Garba Shehu tells the president that we the northern talakawas are tired of living in one country with Igbos. So the best thing is to set up a time frame for Biafran independence. Just give them six months to relocate all their wealth to Southeast. By first January 2021, the national assembly should seat and give the final blessing to what is call Nigeria with Igbos. This is the only solution to this problem,” Audu Garba said.
Reporting further, many other northerners made their stands known to Nigerians after Garba Shehu’s outburst.
