The Alaigbo Development Foundation, ADF, has warned the Federal Government against the use of force against people seeking self-determination.
The group noted with concern that it has never worked anywhere in the world.
Its spokesman, Chief Abia Onyike, in a statement explained that the UN in 2007 passed a resolution affirming the rights of ethnic nationalities to exercise their rights to self-determination.
The statement reaffirmed, “The use of force to deal with those fighting for self-determination has never worked anywhere in the world.”
The forum explained that the Federal Government cannot use force to delay the movement of a determined group who want their autonomy in an oppressive federation such as Nigeria, assuring that ultimately, the people would someday attain their inalienable right to self-determination.
The forum believed that the best way to solve the problem is to engage the agitators through dialogue and diplomacy, stressing that in South Africa, the apartheid regime was defeated by the African National Congress.
It added that in the Soviet Union, state power was defeated to usher in the independence of 15 autonomous republics, saying that the same thing happened in the old Yugoslavia from where six new nation-states emerged.
The Alaigbo Development Foundation noted that some elements from other mega ethnic-nationalities such as the Igbo and Yoruba felt that the time had come to assert their own right to self-determination.
