@bishopwythe @MaziNnamdiKanu @MBuhari @NGRPresident @nassnigeria I totally agree with you but the right question is how. Just off the top of my head, groups (SE & SW) calling to exit the union have 3 main methods.

1. Insurgency
2. Referendum
3. Elections

Insurgency: Create a militia that fight your cause, hitting military facilities..
@bishopwythe @MaziNnamdiKanu @MBuhari @NGRPresident @nassnigeria This means they will have to go underground, train the militia and equip them. Take over state by state till the complete 5 SE have their flags. Then they can declare themselves a Nation.

1. Fight and die for what you believe in
2. Prove to others you are not a coward
@bishopwythe @MaziNnamdiKanu @MBuhari @NGRPresident @nassnigeria CONS:
1. Lose more lives than the Nigerian Civil war(1967-1970)
2. Socioeconomic collapse of the SE, SW and Other regions
3. A war-torn refugee nation
4. A state of insecurity for women and children (Our present insecurity will be a childs play)
5. No recognition by UN (Taiwan)
@bishopwythe @MaziNnamdiKanu @MBuhari @NGRPresident @nassnigeria Referendum: Get a buy-in from politicians, traditional and religious leaders of the region and begin to sell d ideology to each state in d region. So that all d SE or SW Reps in @nassnigeria will vote to have their own little country of their own. Drive a united regional front.
@bishopwythe @MaziNnamdiKanu @MBuhari @NGRPresident @nassnigeria Slowly and strategically vote out parties, Gvnors, assemblymen, chairpersons and counsellors who are not aligned with the exit vision.

Vote out Reps and senators at the FG level we are not aligned. Build states who are self-sufficient.

1. Few deaths will be recorded..
@bishopwythe @MaziNnamdiKanu @MBuhari @NGRPresident @nassnigeria 2. A more resilient and politically relevant region is built that can survive when it exists the union.
3. An end to marginalisation of exiting regions.
4. A more socioeconomically developed region.
5. Sustainable ideology can be passed down from generation to generation..
@bishopwythe @MaziNnamdiKanu @MBuhari @NGRPresident @nassnigeria CONS:
1. It takes time to set up
2. Changing the mindset of the region from the union mindset to the region's mindset is a enormous task.
3. It creates division in the region as leaders who start it want to determine its direction and momentum
@bishopwythe @MaziNnamdiKanu @MBuhari @NGRPresident @nassnigeria I would not b discussing the last method bcos it is our present reality and no Nigerian intellectual has been able to get us a solution that get us solutions thru that method.

@NnadozieOmire I wanted you to get to see this thread.

@James40192029 @MaziNnamdiKanu @MBuhari U called me a fool for demanding that Kanu not focus his energy on inciting violence but rather find ways to better our Nation.

I was shocked when I saw, you retweeted @TracyZille tweet. Saying exactly what I said.

Is she correct bcos she is white

@NnadozieOmire @bishopwythe Image
@James40192029 @MaziNnamdiKanu @MBuhari @TracyZille @NnadozieOmire @bishopwythe If you didn't get @TracyZille tweet b4 retweeting, I will explain it to you.

The western economies of d world (US, UK, EU and now India & China) use the long found weapon of tribalism and ethnicity to keep us where we are. And Mr Kanu strategy is playing into their hands.
@James40192029 @MaziNnamdiKanu @MBuhari @TracyZille @NnadozieOmire @bishopwythe I have never claimed to have all the knowledge of the world no one does. When you insult others online it shows your character. I am open to superior arguments that helps us better understand our Nation so we can excel.

One thing we do not do as Nigerians is ask questions.

@NnadozieOmire @MaziNnamdiKanu @MBuhari Same precolonial profiling you complain about is what you are held down with. I believe the Malaysian didn't want the Singaporeans but look back in history, not being wanted may be in your best interest.

You continue to fill forms like
State of origin, LG of origin etc.
@NnadozieOmire @MaziNnamdiKanu @MBuhari Nnadozie who cares about your ethnicity when you step out of Nigeria?

Sadly No One.

No one cares about Kanu's ethnicity in the UK, only his nationality. And if his present country is tag terrorist, armed militia, prostitutes, drug cartel, 419. We all are tagged also.
@NnadozieOmire @MaziNnamdiKanu @MBuhari I want to leave the union as much as you but I am not fool by mere words I need concrete plans on how we are to achieve this. Hating others in the union isn't also the plan bcos them would be tomorrows trading partners when you exit the union.

What is the #BiafraExit plan?

@jidesanwoolu Dear Gov, we appreciate your concern for Lagosians. I believe Lagosians know it's not a hoax but their doubts came when @followlasg and @lshaofficial remained silent when an assembly-woman allegedly misused Cacovid19 palliatives. People lost their trust in d govt's #COVID19 tale
@jidesanwoolu @followlasg @lshaofficial They found it difficult to reconcile a govt sharing info about the severity of #COVID19 and it socio-economic impact on lagosians then on the other hand giving these relief material to the most impacted in Lagos.
@jidesanwoolu @followlasg @lshaofficial While a plant producing 300 cylinders per day isn't adequate giving the fact that Lagos population is estimated at 25mill, we must commend your efforts to take some action.

I must point out that you must take action on those responsible for not distributing palliatives timely..

@channelstv Dear @DrIsaPantami, I and other #Nigerians would love to know what protocols @nimc_ng put in place at all thier centres across the country. Your ministry @FMoCDENigeria is responsible for @nimc_ng. Who is responsible for ensuring that #COVID19 protocols are put in place?...
@channelstv @DrIsaPantami @nimc_ng @FMoCDENigeria “The greatness of a leader is measured by the achievements of the led. This is the ultimate test of his effectiveness.”

— Omar N. Bradley

This quote simple tells us that your statement "You know how our citizens are, we need attitudinal change" measures your achievements...
@channelstv @DrIsaPantami @nimc_ng @FMoCDENigeria If Nigerians need attitudinal change then you Sir, the leadership of @FMoCDENigeria needs attitudinal change also.

Sir, Nigerians are not mad people. If you give Nigerians a disorganised registeration process, Nigerians or any other national will give you chaos, vice versa.

@Afrikanomics @MYANC @ayittey I slightly disagree that its western style that has caused our National issues as African nations but rather poor leadership, a rotting value system and greed. Our culture's in their own right has also mitigated against our own growth. I will use Nigeria to question his position
@Afrikanomics @MYANC @ayittey D title is appealing to Africans because we naturally refuse to take d blame for our own demise rather place it on other externalities other than ourselves. But many questions arise as I consider Mr Ayittey suggestions? Let's imagine #Nigeria makes d switch before 2023 elections
@Afrikanomics @MYANC @ayittey Q1. How many persons will be elected to d National council? Will it be one person per ethnic groups in Nigeria or will it be based on ethnic size.

My take is that the major ethnic groups will make claim to majority seats in the National Council as we have it today. No change

Are @jidesanwoolu directives being enforced by @followlasg? How effective is public adherence to #COVID19 regulations and is @NCDCgov effectively building itself as a credible govt agency ?

Are govt MDA at the Fed, State & LG levels observing these protocols.

Stopped at Domino's pizza #ikorodu to get pizza for my in-laws. Made use of the app so I only had to pick up. Got in to pick up and there was a crowd at there and at #Coldstone.

If the govt believes that #COVID19 is serious then why is it slack with enforcing it's protocol.
On my way to Ikorodu almost all the BRT's had 3 - 10% of commuters using their nose mask. In smaller buses almost no one wore nose mask. No @PoliceNG or @followlastma officer wore a nose mask.

I think private establishments enforce some of these regulation better than the govt
