Biafra, Oduduwa: What will it cost Buhari to champion this referendum? – Ashia Yesufu asks

Popular activist, Aisha Yesufu has questioned President Muhammadu Buhari on what it would cost for him to champion a referendum for regions that are calling for separation from the country.

She said one way Buhari can reduce the agitations is by giving room for a referendum.

Recall that the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, was arrested a few days ago, and the freedom fight for Yoruba Nation, Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Sunday Igboho, has been declared wanted.

Reacting to this, Aisha tweeted, “What will it cost Buhari to champion this referendum? Get the people working on it to quell the agitations. Get to hear from everyone and know if it is the wish of the people or just tyranny of the vocal minority. Plus there is no way it can be fully achieved in the 2 years remaining.”

“When you are leading people you have to be pragmatic. It is give and take! Always let the people feel they have the upper hand. Stoop low to them.

“They are yearning for referendum and separation, put it in motion and you take the fire off them. Opposition ignites the fire.”
