Nigerians, that is to say the people who inhabit the geopolitical space called Nigeria did not have a say in the matter of being bundled together into one country. One man, Frederick Lugard, under the authority of a distant crown, formed the country in 1914.
The right to self-determination requires that a people have a say in the geo-political boundaries that define their nationality. The denial of a people’s right to self-determination is a form of injustice and oppression. Injustices and oppression must in all cases be remedied immediately they are uncovered and without delay.
Therefore, the denial of the right to self-determination of the people who currently inhabit the Nigerian geo-political space must cease without any further delay. Nigerians must be allowed to convene and conduct a Sovereign National Conference to enable them exercise their right to self-determination.
