Nigerian former President, Olusegun Obasanjo has slammed those agitating for Biafra.
He said those clamouring for the disintegration of the nation were only waiting for ship at the airport.
The ex-soldier in an interview with a Liberian-based news portal, AfricanArgument, said the agitators don’t event know what the struggle was all about.
“The protesters don’t even know what the struggle is all about, but if it gives them false hope, why not hang onto it? Let the elders handle it or ignore it until it loses momentum.
“There are elders in any community who are still respected…After all, they’re their fathers and mothers, grandfathers and grandmothers, and can still be used effectively,” he said.
On federalism, Obasanjo said he does not believe in it and that those talking about devaluation and true federalism don’t know what they were talking about.
“I don’t believe in true federalism. What is true federalism? Why are they not accountable? What powers do they not have?
Former President also carpeted President Muhammadu Buhari for not doing enough on unemployment and recession.
He added, “In fact, state governors are more powerful than the president. That’s the truth.”
“If anybody tells you they want devolution or true federalism, he doesn’t know what he is talking about.
He advised that if “youth empowerment, skill acquisition and youth employment – education are provided the ticking bomb of possible youth explosion out of restiveness and anger will subside. In fact, state governors are more powerful than the president.”
