Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere; We need to stand on our own to repair the damages caused to our nation and people since the inception of Nigeria(1914); This will compensate for the pains and set the record straight. We can't freely form a good union within ourselves or with anyone when we are still slaves. We need to be independent first then we can freely decide who to affiliate with and when. We can't bury this gross injustice done to our people with its devastating consequence under the carpet. If we do this, Injustice will have precedence over justice. Therefore, Reject a restructured Nigeria, Reject Vice president slot/privilege, Its a set-up by our oppressors to quench Biafra agitation and to take us to another level of slavery.
Boycott Nigerian elections in Biafraland, we are no longer part of the system, press hard on the quest for a referendum to be conducted for our total freedom.
When you accept anything less than total freedom, 1) You will continue to be a second-class citizen and marginalized within the northern communities who preferred that you serve them rather than be served.
2) You will continue to suffer from bad governance, corruption, nepotism, favouritism, tribalism, and embezzlement of public funds. 3) They will continue to denigrate and adulterate your rich cultural values because of their loyalty to the British. 4) Your natural and human resources will be sold and used to serve their interests while neglecting your own; They will, therefore, continue to develop their region while you stagnate and beg for anything you need, which they will reluctantly give you according to their whims and caprices.
5) They will keep developing their cities and institutions to the detriment of our own. 6) They will never allow us to become masters of our own destiny and shapers of our futures.
7 Employment and scholarships will still be biased in their favour and they won't give us a chance to catch up on the 58yrs of marginalization, Stagnation, deprivation, exploitation, dehumanization, degradation, underdevelopment and destruction of our economic base.
They will never allow us to have peace because they will continue to divide and rule us, thus sowing the seed of disunity(just as they have done by creating south as a cardinal region), Animosity and a poor psychological atmosphere for personal and internal development. 9) Projects like the seaport in Onitcha, Port-Harcourt, Calabar etc and all the international Airports in the whole eastern region will never see the light of the day.

10) The country development plans will never emerge, hence, We will continue to have bad roads, railways, and funny transportation arrangement. 11) They will continue to treat us as a tribe within their country and handle us as an insignificant minority that is always wanting to cause trouble.
12) They will continue to agree with British that Igbos can never rule in their country(Nigeria), Hence, we have to be contented with our second-class status and occupy second-rate jobs.

13) There is no guarantee that our people will not be harassed, disappear, kidnap, held for ransom, imprisoned, raped and killed because of their beliefs and thoughts. 14) There's also no guarantee that our people and their properties will not be burned alive by the northerners because we oppose an evil regime and system. Therefore, think twice and try to make use of your God-given brain.
