Biafra, officially the Republic of Biafra, was a secessionist state in West Africa that separated from Nigeria and existed from May 1967 to January 1970.

Over the years, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) have continued to advocate for the secession of the Igbo-populated Southeast zone, by demanding a referendum from the federal government and going public with calls for the creation of a sovereign Biafra nation.

Former senator representing Kaduna Central, Shehu Sani has stated that zoning must be written in the constitution to sustain Nigeria.

Specifically, Shehu Sani made this call during an interview on Channels Television on Friday, October 15.

Equally important, the former lawmaker stated that the principles of fairness and equity must be incorporated in the constitution. Notably, he added that this is to ensure that no part of the country dominates another.

He said, “I think to solve this problem, this needs to be clearly stated in our constitution…It should be written in the language that there would be no interpretation whether it is Igbo, Hausa, Yoruba, and Ijaw.

“If the presidency is in the north for eight years, it should be in the south for eight years so that there will be no need for a lawyer or legal luminary to explain this thing to us.

“If we are going to sustain this country; we need equity, justice, fairness, and fair play and ensure that one part of the country does not dominate power for a long time.

Shehu Sani

“But it cannot be done on the altar of threat and intimidation. These are issues that can be resolved between the political elites in the north; as well as the south on a table for the unity and peace of Nigeria.”

Further, Shehu Sani stated the need to elect competent leaders irrespective of their zones.

He said, “Well, we can have both. All parts of Nigeria are blessed with competent leaders that can stir the ship of the Nigerian state for progress,

“But as far as I’m concerned, I come from the part of the country that is virtually under the siege of terrorists and bandits. In fact, as I’m speaking to you now, it is difficult for me to move one kilometre outside of my own city; without getting into the hands of terrorists.

“For me and my people, I believe that whoever is going to lead this country and provide security; protect our people, guarantee the safety of our people and family, we will welcome him.

“But if we look at the problems we face as a country today; the separatist agitation, the nepotism, the crises, the violence, and bloodshed; I think the rotation of power will address a number of issues,” he added.

Victorians holed up in their sixth lockdown are four days away from their first taste of freedom in months.

The state recorded 1,838 new Covid-19 cases and seven more deaths on Sunday as vaccination rates surge towards the 70 per cent double-dose milestone. 

Surging vaccination rates have prompted Premier Daniel Andrews to fast-track freedoms in the state’s roadmap out of lockdown and tweak previously announced eased restrictions.

Melbourne will be lifted from lockdown at 11.59pm Thursday, the day Victoria is expected to reach the 70 per cent double-dose target.

The dreaded night curfew and 15km travel limit will be abolished, hospitality outlets can reopen for dining at restricted capacity while the staggered return to the classroom begins this Friday.

Residents can have up to 10 visitors at their homes while outdoor gathering limits will increase from 10 to 15.

Melburnians will finally be lifted from lockdown at 11.59pm Friday

Visitors to homes don’t have to be fully vaccinated but is highly recommended by the state government and health officials. The same rule applies for outdoor gatherings.

The Premier praised Victorians on their ‘mighty’ effort to roll up their sleeves.

Melbourne’s current 73 day lockdown was due to end on October 26 but will now end four days earlier.

‘These are things we can bring forward because the Victorian community has done so well in getting vaccinated so fast and in such great numbers,’ Mr Andrews said on Sunday.

‘I could not be more proud of our community for coming forward and making these decisions to protect themselves, to protect the people they love, and to protect all of us against this global pandemic.’

‘To allow us to change the rules to open up, to normalise this, to get our friends back, to be focused on living our lives as close to normal as possible.’ 

Mr Andrews later tweeted: ‘Bring forward the haircut and tell Mum you’ll be round for dinner.’

Hospitality venues can reopen for up to 20 fully vaccinated customers indoors and 50 outdoors.

Non-essential retail can reopen for outdoor service only along with click and collect, while hairdressing will be open for up to five fully vaccinated people.

Entertainment venues and amusement parks can reopen for 50 fully vaccinated people outdoors.

Travelling to regional areas remains off limits for Melburnians until the state reaches 80 per cent double dose target.

Large-scale construction sites can also increase to 100 per cent capacity but only if all workers are fully vaccinated.

Religious gatherings, weddings and funerals will allow up to 50 fully vaccinated guests outdoors and 20 people indoors. 

Masks are still required both indoors and outdoors.

The amendments to Victoria’s road map were announced a week after millions of fully vaccinated NSW residents enjoyed their taste of freedom in 106 days, where the 80 per cent double dose rate was hit on Saturday.

Mr Andrews said roadmap amendments were based on the latest Burnet Institute modelling, which is predicting much lower hospitalisation and death figures than originally forecasted.

‘We have more case numbers than we would like but they are not converting into hospitalisations,’ the Premier explained.

‘The length of the stay in hospital is substantially less than we thought it would be. 

‘Acuity of illness is substantially less than we thought it would be. All of these things are positive.’

‘The more people who get vaccinated, the more options we will have to get back to normal or at least COVID normal, to do things that we love the most and be with the people we love the most but to do so safely. 

‘Not putting more pressure on our nurses. Not overwhelming our health system.’

The Premier added that 90 per cent of cases currently in hospital were not fully vaccinated.

‘They are not numbers, they are people that are very, very unwell. Some of whom are gravely unwell, gasping for air, they are not vaccinated, not fully vaccinated, almost all of them,’ he said.

‘So there is every reason – every reason – to get vaccinated like so many Victorians already have. 

The state’s Chief Health Officer Professor Brett Sutton believes the health system will cope in the weeks ahead as Victoria reopens.

‘With the very high vaccination coverage, our health system – which will continue to have significant challenges – it will cope,’ he said.

Around 73,501 Victorians came forward for testing on Saturday as jabs administrated surge past five million.

‘Today is the day to congratulate and thank every single one of those five million Victorians who have at least got one dose. Of course there is more to do,’ Mr Andrews said.

‘We’ve got to get to that 70 per cent double dose threshold, we’ve got to push beyond that and get to 80 per cent pleasingly.’

Melbourne epidemiologist Catherine Bennett welcomed Sunday’s announcement.

I think one of the key bits of information that surfaced today was actually what is happening with our hospitalisations,’ she told ABC.

‘We have watched those rise, double, in the last couple of weeks, and so we have seen that blow through from the rising case numbers a fortnight ago, but in fact they are levelling out now already and importantly, the other bit of news today was those are ending up in hospital are therefore a shorter time so I think that is really important.

‘We always knew that the shift in focus would be too serious illness and hospitalisation as an indicator of that and also about our capacity to give people the care that they need if they are seriously ill, but that looks like that is more contained than certainly the modelling predicted and that has a lot to do with our vaccination doses.’

‘I think that is the important news is we have now got a level of protection, we can take some extra steps sooner but we are also bringing those dates in the roadmap forward as we knew we could because they were linked to vaccination numbers, so that as a sign of great progress in terms of the vaccination rollout here in Victoria.’

The seven deaths takes the toll from the current COVID-19 outbreak to 145 and follows the death of a 15-year-old girl with underlying conditions announced on Saturday. 

The state’s tally of active cases has climbed to 23,376. 

The Victorian crisis cabinet met on Saturday night to finetune eased restrictions.

In regional Victoria, restaurants, cafes and gyms can now have up to 30 fully vaccinated patrons per venue while outdoor venues can increase their capacity from 20 to 100.

VICTORIA FAST-TRACKS ROADMAP

Victoria’s lockdown will end at 11.59pm Thursday with a raft of eased restrictions. 

* Reasons to leave home and curfew no longer in place

* 10 people including dependents can visit a home each day

* 15 people can gather outdoors

* Pubs, clubs and entertainment venues can open to 20 fully vaccinated people indoors and 50 fully vaccinated people outdoors

* Funerals and weddings allowed for 20 fully vaccinated indoors and 50 fully vaccinated outdoors

* All students to return to school at least part-time

* Hairdressing and beauty salons to open for up to five fully vaccinated people at a time. 

Government officials in Victoria are increasing efforts to get 80 per cent of the state to be fully vaccinated by the end of October.

To do so, health staff are contacting 100,000 Victorians to bring forward their second dose of the vaccine. 

Freedoms at 70 per cent for fully vaccinated Victorians so far include non-essential retail opening with density limits wile the limit on outdoor social gatherings rising to 10 fully-vaccinated people.

Pubs, clubs and entertainment venues will reopen with density limits as well as intrastate travel with the exception of metropolitan Melbourne.

Caps on funerals, weddings and religious ceremonies will also be increased.  

Victorian health officials are ringing those with second dose bookings asking them to bring their appointments forward to October 25 to help reach these targets sooner

The state government has approved crowds at some large-scale events including Remembrance Day, with health officials confirming on Saturday night the state would be likely to hit 70 and 80 per cent targets within a week of each other if appointments for the second doses are brought forward.  

‘With regular supplies of Pfizer and Moderna now available, every eligible Victorian now has the opportunity to bring forward their Covid-19 vaccination and get protected sooner,’ a department statement said.

‘Up to 100,000 Victorians can expect to get a call from the Department of Health in coming days inviting them to bring forward their second doses of Pfizer.’

The coronavirus hotline is now ringing those with second dose bookings, asking them to move up their jabs to October 25 or earlier due to a serge in Pfizer and Moderna as one million doses arrive in Victoria next week. 

This campaign suggests Victoria will be able to reach 80 per cent by October 31 according to analyst Anthony Macali of Covidlive.com.au. 

Mr Macali said he was optimistic Victoria would achieve its vaccine targets before the proposed dates.  

‘There’s a small chance, a very best-case scenario that we get to 80 per cent by the 30th of October, but I’m calling the 31st of October,’ he said to The Herald Sun.

According to the department, Victoria needs 269,341 second doses to reach the 70 per cent target as the Federal Health Minister Greg Hunt says Australia is now ahead of the EU and US for first dose numbers.
