As many may have deduced from the historic occurrence of events, Nigeria as an entity is simply an impractical legacy of British colonialism that has managed to evade implosion since its creation. Thanks to the gumptious effort of the colonial mother (Britain) to protect her enterprise for the continuous sustenance of her economic development and advancement at the detriment of the entrapped Indigenous nations in Nigeria.
Nevertheless, the anaemia-infested entity has always failed to respond positively to stimuli. Nigeria have continuously grown from worse to worst and never aided any progress or contributed reasonably for its citizens in any sphere of human development, irrespective of how blessed it is with both human and mineral resources.
The recently concluded presidential election that took place on the 25th of February 2023 has further exposed the insanity called Nigeria and the stark hypocrisy of those who manipulates it from afar namely; the British, the Americans and the collective west, all in a desperate bid to secure their economic interests and geopolitical influence, either by hook or by crook.
The fraudulent selection they called election; which was marred with unimaginable electoral malpractices, ballot snatching, political thuggery and ethnic profiling– where indigenes of a certain tribe in the same country, were not allowed to exercise their voting rights in another region because of their ethnic background. This has further reduced the rhythm of “strength in diversity”, often chanted by the incumbent British High commissioner, Mrs. Catriona Liang as nothing but a total hoax to deceive the gullible and unfortunate Indigenous people in Nigeria.
Credible evidences of irregularities and conspiracy by the Independent national electoral commission (INEC), and the ruling oligarchs in Nigeria to rob the people of their mandate and install an Internationally recognized drug baron — Bola Tinubu as president, did not deter Western countries from hurriedly sending congratulatory messages with some of them; like the British Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak already pledging support and swift partnership and others. Some of the delegates from the African Union have also been seen endorsing the election as free and fair.
With this level of internal and external conspiracy by individuals, institutions and states against the people in Nigeria, aim at prolonging the contraption for their economic benefits, the only option for escaping this rat-race of neo-colonial manipulations is a United Nation supervised referendum for Nigeria populace.
This has been the argument of the Mazi Nnamdi Kanu led Indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB). Unfortunately, it is being erroneously dubbed a secessionist mantra, leading to unprecedented persecution of both parties up until this moment.
But, every abstract thought will arrive at the conclusion that the problem with/of Nigeria is its indefinite state of existence. And the only means to solve the incoherent differences amongst the populace is a referendum to decide if they want to continue as Nigerians or would like to go their separate ways to develop according to their definite value systems and contribute to both regional and international evolution.
So, the United Nations general assembly should embrace this genuine call to duty. Conduct a referendum in Nigeria to at least initiate the process of retribution to victims of centuries long imperialism, especially to the people of Biafra who have suffered immeasurably from what that can be called a global conspiracy to exterminate her from existence.
