Owerri Declaration: Ndigbo call for autonomous region: Politics : Nigerialog.com - Nigeria's Premier Online Forum
“Against this background of worrisome escalating insecurity, fear and horror in our homeland, threats to our continued existence as a people more so in the face of mounting pressure of occupation by alien terrorist Muslim Fulani herdsmen, we hereby declare that our people are no longer willing to live a life of meaningless existence in the Federal Republic of Nigeria. And, therefore, urge that Ndigbo and her willing neighbours to be regarded as an Autonomous Region, with the right to full control of her territory, resources, executive, legislative and judicial institutions. Consequently, we are compelled to call for a plebiscite to secure our God-given homeland, propelled by our collective will to self-determination”.
