Nigerians, especially those who witnessed the civil war between 1967-1970, have been asked to learn from history and save the country from sudden destruction.
The apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo gave the warning on Friday, noting that there are ominous sings of bleak future for the country
The president general of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Nnia Nwodo, stated this in a statement by his media aide, Emeka Attamah, warning that the clouds are gathering and Nigerians must beware of another civil war.
He was responding to the Tuesday election of the 9th National Assembly leadership, that saw the South-East ending up without any leadership positions.
“There is no future for Nigeria. As long as the north decides to be unreasonable and realistic, this country can never get better.
“The country is only heading for implosion as long as equity and fairness is denied some sections of the country.
“The only solution is restructuring or the country will eventually hit the rocks. If not today, tomorrow. What does it cost to be fair and live in peace ?
“Certainly, nobody will blame anybody if emotion runs high and the thread holding the country becomes thin and snaps .
“No condition is permanent in life. There are ominous signs and the clouds are gathering.
“Let the remaining generation that witnessed the Nigerian civil war recant and save the country from the cataclysm that will envelop her if the upcoming generation are allowed to inherit the callousness and wickedness pervading the land now. Nigerians beware of civil war,” the statement read.
