Nigeria will exist no more — former governor

Reading Time: 1 minute

[Enugu]–The former governor of Anambra State, Dr. Chukwuemeke Ezeife, has raised concern that Nigeria may cease to exist if restructuring of Nigeria into six geopolitical zones is not carried out immediately.

He made this statement on Tuesday, at the First Chinua Achebe International Conference organised by the Institute of African Studies, University of Nigeria, Nsukka.

According to the elder statesman, Southern Peoples Assembly, SPA, will soon meet to take a stand on whether the people of southern Nigeria will be part of 2019 general elections if the country was not restructured.

Ezeife further said that, “Today, the centre cannot hold any longer in Nigeria. Are we going to watch things fall apart and allow Nigeria disintegrate?

“Today, all speeches have been going in the way of referendum. It has come to a stage where it’s clear that if nothing is done, there will be no more Nigeria.

“My appeal, therefore, is that all hands must be on deck and all brains at work, otherwise the country will exist no more.

“First, there must be restructuring. After that and we don’t like it, then any other things can come,” he advised.
