Senator Ben Murray Bruce has lend his voice to the issue of Biafrexit says Nigeria is better as a single nation.
Following the referendum in Britain on Thursday, June 23 which saw the country pull out of the European Union, some pro-Biafra agitators have been calling for a similar referendum that will see the Igbos leave the country.
The country was shaken following the result of the Brexit referendum with the country’s currency falling in the wake of the democratic decision. Prime minister, David Cameron subsequently resigned.
Senator Ben Bruce took to his twitter page to want Nigerians especially those calling for secession to think twice as the country has a lot to benefit as one rather than to disintegrate.
Meanwhile, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) officially announced the launching of ’BIAFREXIT’ as its campaign slogan.
Daily Post reports that Barrister Emma Nmezu and Dr. Clifford Chukwuemeka Iroanya, the spokespersons of the group, announced this in a statement issued on Saturday, June 25.
In a statement titled “There must be ‘BIAFREXIT’ in line with the just concluded ‘BREXIT’”, IPOB congratulated the people of Britain and applauded the government for respecting the wishes of its citizens.
The group also called on the British government to guide President Muhammadu Buhari and his colleagues to organize a BIAFREXIT in Nigeria.
