Let Nigeria Break Up Now- Fani Kayode Explodes In Anger

By Ikenga Chronicles April 19, 2017

Former Aviation and Chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, Femi Fani-Kayode has called for the break up of Nigeria.

He was reacting to a recent assertion by elder statesman, Tanko Yakasai who said it was the people of the south west that are “misleading the Igbo” into wanting to break out from Nigeria.

In an article entitled, “The Sound, Fury of Ango Abdullahi, The Mendacities of Tanko Yakasai,” Fani-Kayode warned northern leaders to stop playing politics with people’s lives or begin to count down to Nigeria’s disintegration.

He wrote, “I say enough is enough! The only way forward is to restructure Nigeria or break her.

“Whether anyone likes it or not I have spoken the bitter truth. I have reflected the minds and hearts of millions of people from the south and the Middle Belt.

“Whether they wish to acknowledge it or not, the truth is that If the core north does not retrace its steps, not only will Nigeria break into two or more pieces but people like Professor Ango Abdullahi, Alhaji Tanko Yakasai and all those that come from that zone will suffer immeasurably as a consequence of it.”

Meanwhile, the immediate past Chairman of Leventis Group, Chief Joseph Oke has stated that Nigeria may not survive another century as a corporate entity if the needful was not done.

Oke who spoke during the annual Discovery Lecture series at the Lagos State University, LASU, titled “Can Nigeria survive another century as a corporate entity?’’

He said, “The Local Government Council, which is the third tier and closest to the grassroots, is a marginalised government.

“The interest of all minority groups and the issue of derivation must also be addressed.

“The federation must be restructured to devolve more powers to the states, which must include policing, education, health, road network and security.”
