Former Governor of Abia, Dr Orji Uzor Kalu, has declared his opposition to agitation for Biafra.
Kalu, however, called for restructuring as a panacea to solving the problems facing the country.
The former governor said: “I believe fully in the unity of Nigeria. I am against those who call for the division of the country. There is no such provision as division in our Constitution.
“If you look at all political or constitutional conferences we have had in this country since after independence, you will find that devolution of powers featured prominently but under different guise.
“Therefore, like the Igbo people will say, where a child is crying and pointing at, if his father is not there, his mother must surely be there.
“So, I think there is need for us to fully review the call for devolution of powers within the context of our current realities and as permissible by our constitution.
“Whether we call it resource control, Sovereign National Conference, Restructuring or by any other name, we are saying the same thing.
“That we want power to devolve so that our states and local governments can have constitutional powers to do much more than they are doing today.
“It is what the nation needs at the moment, to move forward.
“The agitation for devolution of power, restructuring or referendum, are all legitimate democratic demands.
“They form part of the conversation that must take place to strengthen democracy and make it a real system of government of the people, by the people and for the people”.
