Former lawmaker, Senator Muslihu El-Jibrin Doguwa has said that any region that breaks away from Nigeria will cry.

Doguwa, who was the chairman Senate Committee on Agriculture between 1999 and 2003, while speaking in a recent interview said the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB for Biafra Republic stand no chance, if they secede.

“Let me tell you about this issue of IPOB, Afenifere and northerners, we don’t see ourselves as Nigerians. During the days of Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa, he talked about Nigeria, he talked about the problems in the East, he talked about the problems in the West and there was that regional issue; the Northern Region, the Southern Region and the Eastern Region and the rest, ”he said.

“The issue is that those people in IPOB and similar movements agitations were not around when our founding fathers were talking about the unity of this country. That is why they are bastardizing the thinking of our youths and putting them on the wrong path, thinking that when they secede they will succeed. Whoever secedes from Nigeria as it is today will not succeed.”

Let me tell you this, especially the IPOB that has made it an issue, if they are allowed to go they will cry,’ he said.

“Let me give you a simple example, can you tell me any small village in Nigeria today that you cannot find an Igbo man? You can’t. You can’t tell me of a small village in this country where you will not find an Igbo man doing his small business or trade. ”

“When they secede will they then say they are going back to their own country? Do you think we in remaining Nigeria will allow them to continue to stay in our villages or in our own part? Or will they allow our people to stay in their own part? No, they will not.”


  1. Senator Muslihu El-Jibrin Doguwa, thank you very much at your thought. Of course Biafrans wil cry a cry of relief from operation for which they are now in your villages. Biafra has enough resources to take care of every Biafran. The fact is the Biafrans now in your villages in the North may never want to be there again, because they are there because of oppression by the Northern Hausa and Fulani wicked government. If Biafra becomes independent, Nigeria will beg everything from them. However, how is that your headache? Whether Biafrans will cry or laugh at independence, how does it matter to you. You, are you crying or laughing? Carry your own Northern HausaFulani problem, and let Biafrans carry their own blessings. I perceive that Biafra will feed Nigeria in virtually everything when Biafra gains independence. Watch and see it happen. They time is in at hand. The time is here.
