Biafra, Oduduwa: Grant Them Referendum Now – Aisha Tells Buhari

Aisha made the call, saying referendum could quell the fire of agitations across states.

President Muhammadu Buhari has been told to grant agitators referendum to end the violence in the country.

Nigerian activist, Aisha Yesufu made the call saying referendum could quell the fire of agitations across states.

The Buhari government is currently keeping Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB at the custody of the Department of State Services, DSS, after he was lured to Kenya, arrested and brought back to Nigeria last weekend. Sunday Igboho’s house was attacked by DSS operatives on Thursday.

Although the DSS confirmed killing only two persons, reports has it that about seven of Igboho’s aides were killed at his residence, while his wife, other family members and aides were taken away.

Aisha believes this is not the way to go.

“What will it cost Buhari to champion this referendum? Get the people working on it to quell the agitations. Get to hear from everyone and know if it is the wish of the people or just tyranny of the vocal minority. Plus there is no way it can be fully achieved in the 2 years remaining.

“When you are leading people you have to be pragmatic. It is give and take! Always let the people feel they have the upper hand. Stoop low to them.

“They are yearning for referendum and separation, put it in motion and you take the fire off them. Opposition ignites the fire,” she tweeted.
