NIGERIA BREAK UP IS IMMINENT- MAJOR GENERAL ZAMANI LEKWOT


Reactions have been following President Trump and President Buhari’s meeting in Washington DC on 30th April. Major General Zamani Lekwot, retd., and Prof. Banji Akintoye, have warned of imminent break up of Nigeria if nothing urgent is done now.

The duo urged those afraid of restructuring to express their fears and be open to discussion as what is to happen is likely to bring to an end, the Nigerian state. They sounded it clearly that without restructuring Nigeria will break up.

According to them, for one to keep saying ‘Nigeria will not break up’ is a self-deception, adding that the country will one day collapse. They spoke on Wednesday at the 10th anniversary symposium of the late Senator Abraham Adesanya held in Lagos, where the issue of restructuring was prominent.

Lekwot said Nigeria must be restructured “otherwise the structure will one day collapse on us and future generation and God will not forgive us.” He stated. Prof Akintoye, a historian, on his own, said the country was likely to break up if it does not urgently restructure. He said, “If Nigeria does not take steps to urgently restructure itself and return to the federal system, the federal system that we saw in the 1950 s up till 1965, Nigeria is very likely to break up.

“Don’t say your country cannot break up, any country can break up.” The historian cries out. This is coming few hours after formal President Olusegun Obasanjo and his Vice Atiku Abubarka have warned of imminent collapse of Nigeria.
