Uche Mefor, the estranged Deputy-Leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has said that it “is very unlikely” that a Nigerian President of Igbo extraction will stop the agitation for a Biafra Republic.
POLITICS NIGERIA reports that Mefor said this in a post on his known Facebook page at the weekend.
According to the diaspora-based separatist, “an Igbo president of Nigeria will even intensify the agitation for the restoration of Biafra”.

WILL THE NIGERIAN PRESIDENT OF IGBO-BIAFRA EXTRACTION STOP BIAFRA AGITATION?
This is very unlikely. An Igbo president of Nigeria will even intensify the agitation for the restoration of Biafra. Biafrans must concentrate on the Biafra Territorial politics with a view to controlling the political space in Biafraland.
NIGERIA IS AN IDEAL CANDIDATE, WOULD BE COMPLETING THE CYCLE OF THE STATUS OF AN IDEAL CONTENDER HIGHLY AND LIKELY TO BE SUBJECTED TO REMEDIAL SECESSION IF SHE MISHANDLES THE IGBO BID FOR PRESIDENCY AND DENIES OR SCHEMES THEM OUT
REMEDIAL SECESSION/EXTERNAL SELF-DETERMINATION/OUTRIGHT INDEPENDENCE) can be justified as a last resort in extreme case of oppression or arbitrary or systematic human rights violations against a group that qualifies as a ‘people’ or ‘peoples’ and ultimately, the denial of INTERNAL SELF-DETERMINATION against such group(s) by a state (in this case, Nigeria). When that happens—- to such an extent that the territorial intergrity of such state( in this case,Nigeria) is called to question, that state loses her claim to her sovereignty because she has failed to adequately represent her whole population in the governance of her affairs. No doubt ,there are consequences but if crafted and guided and guarded strategically, the group(s) is/are likely to succeed with recognition of the members of the international community. If the Igbos (either alone or in collaboration with others) decides to seek for a separate country by exercising their right to self-determination through the LENS OF REMEDIAL SECESSION, they are strongly and likely going to be justified subject to external RECOGNITION.
In summary, I believe that Nigeria has since reached the threshold to such an extent that any Indigenous People of any ethnic origin within the Nigerian state can seek REMEDIAL SECESSION on account of monumental human rights violations and extreme oppression against them by the Fulani-controlled Nigerian state government. Nigeria is, indeed, an ideal candidate ripe for and should be subjected to REMEDIAL SECESSION by the component units. This is what the Biafra agitators must continue to focus on and consolidate.
