Anarchy inevitable without restructuring – Nwodo

The President General of the apex Igbo organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief Nnia Nwodo, has warned that Nigeria may be heading for a serious crisis if the clamour for the restructuring of the country was not urgently attended to.

The Ohanaze boss, who spoke in Abuja, yesterday, at a live political programme on African Independent Television (AIT), said: “Unless we restructure this country, we will slide into an uncontrollable crisis.”

Nwodo said that Nigeria had all the potentials of a world power given its growing population, but stood to lose out if it was denied proper administrative structure. “Nigeria is a world power, but if it continues to be wrongly administered it will continue to be a laughing stock”, he said.

 The president general reiterated his earlier stand that Ndigbo remained the most marginalised in the country, despite their commitment to the nation, lamenting that the country’s body politic was insensitive to the plight of Ndigbo, despite their overwhelming contributions to the socio- political and economic development of the country.

Nwodo expressed regrets that the Nigeria system as currently constituted killed endeavor and discouraged productivity.

On  how to go about the restructuring, the Ohanaeze boss suggested a revisit of the 2014 National Conference, which had Nigerians from all sectors and was headed by a former Chief Justice of Nigeria.

He said that resources used in organizing he conference should not be wasted just because some people did not like the administration that set it up.

On the advantages of restructuring Nwodo examined the declining importance of oil as a major source of revenue. He gave examples of the Netherlands and California both of which built their strong economies out of agriculture and human capital development and maintained that restructuring was the surest way to attain fastest economic growth for Nigeria.

    Igbo is biological identity of the natives of the five south east states. Biafra is political identity of the natives of the five south east states of God given Republic Of Biafra. Political poor northern bandits in the name of nigeria occupies Igbos native land, plundered, kill etc. If you are an Igbo man or woman and thinks Igboland is your native land, but you refuse to stand for this final battle, refuse to play your role in this final battle to defend your native Igboland, and you still think you will have access to your native Igboland you do not fight under this Unavoidable Necessity to defend, you are a big joke! Only those Igbos who stands for this final battle and play their roles in this final battle, decides and only them will have a place in Igboland they fought for and defended under God given Republic Of Biafra of the five south east states. Deadline with the political name nigeria, is October 1st 2017. The final battle of the 50 years Biafra – Nigeria War has begun, which God has given Biafra victory. The enemy nickname this final battle Python Dance II, but it is BIAFRAN REVOLUTION WAR. It is Operation Burn Down the enemy in Biafraland.

    Is there a victory over corruption in Nigeria? Is prevention and fighting corruption has significance records of success? Does corruption excluded Christians, Muslims, North, West, East part of Nigeria and all the tribes in the country? These catigorically mean that if the government restructured corruption will killed it instantly. Those developed countries in the world especially U.S.A and Europe, What made them to attained a developed status upon their differences of background, culture, religion and historical origin? What is the secrete of their achievement? Is it restructure of government or restructure of mentality?. An educated and civilised society learn from the secrete of what made other society greate in order to imitates the socio-economy and political lessons of their success, Is Nigerians learning or deluding themselves?. The clamouring of restructuring of government raised question of what is the dictionary meaning of restructuring? Answering this presented Nigeria as an undemocratic society because a democratic society its people think for themselves and their faculty of reasoning shows that nobody can imposed selfish cause on them nor fooled them in order to take their advantages for political gain moreover a democratic system of government has its democratic tools reorientation, reorganisation, revitalization, refocus, rehabilitation and re-unite of key areas of economy development, security matter and understanding its political atmophere in proffering accurate focast of future socio-economy and political problems in order to prevent economy and political instabilities not really restructure of government. A country that is United by corruption, United by selfishness, United by hypocracy, United by indiscipline and United by bussybody which practised difference failed system of government from 1960-parliamentary-regional government, military and now democracy while its people failed to realised that the system was not the main problem but their mentalities now blindly and shamefully clamouring for restructure of government without firstly triumph over corruption that united them in spirit and flesh which also ridiculed the country in committee of nations when former prime minister of England David Cameroom said-Nigeria is Fantastically corrupt, so would restructure of government end corruption in Nigeria?
