The Nnia Nwodo agents of restructuring must have lost their memory, or trying to distort history or just comfortable being a political puppet in the hands of the Fulani cabals and the Sokoto caliphate. Recall that in the 60's the attention of the world was draw to the suffering and courage of people who fought for thirty months blockaded, starved without any hope of import, fighting for survival. Biafrans who were on the defensive never wanted to fight war, they only wanted the country restructured that was what lead to Aburi accord.

On the 4th of January 1967 Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu (veteran) and other military governors went to Aburi to find a peaceful resolution to the current unset in the country, the following resolutions where made:

1.      The immediate resumption of the Ad hoc committee to work out a constitutional future for Nigeria.
2.      The payment of salaries until 31st march 1967 of all Staff and employees of government and Statuary Corporation and any other who were forced to leave their post as a result of the counter coup
3.      The setting up in the meantime of a committee to look into the problem of rehabilitation of displaced persons, and the recovery of their properties.
4.      The exclusion of the use of force as the means of settling any difference within the country.
5.      The repealing of all decrees which tended to over centralize power at the expense of region autonomy, this would be followed by the enactment of a decree before the 21st January to restore the regions to their political position prior to January 15, 1966.

On the advice of some federal Senior civil servants Gowon on arrival rejected and denied most of these decisions which made Ojukwu to convene a meeting of advisory committee of chiefs and elders at Enugu on the 26th of May 1967 he gave the committee three alternative solution to the crises

1. To accept the terms of the north and Gowon and thereby submit to domination, by the north
2. To continue the present stalemate and drift
3. Ensure the survival of the people by asserting their autonomy

On 27th of May 1967 the Eastern consultative assembly mandated Ojukwu to declare eastern Nigeria a free sovereign and independent state by the name Republic of Biafra.

Another was the 3 R'S:

That is another deception, when all the destruction was in Biafra land but reconstruction started in Lagos that never saw war for a day, where is the rehabilitation when all our properties where tagged abandoned properties and banks gave loan to Hausa Fulani and Yoruba to buy them, was there reconciliation when until date we are being killed and subjected to all manner of injustice by the Nigerian state. What of the likes of Ken Saro Wiwa that where killed, was he also fighting for a sovereign state? No, he was actually fighting for restructuring. What about the 2014 Confab report why was it not implemented, was secession part of the resolutions?

The Nigerian state can never allow restructuring of this country, instead more pythons will be dancing in our lands, the issue of restructuring is like that of the second Niger bridge that always come out once every four years as campaign promise and after that its gone dead and buried, Nnia Nwodo and all the alleged Igbo leaders are not playing the politics of memory because one cannot restructure where there is no structures. Support Biafra referendum for total dismemberment of Nigeria, Biafra remains our only hope of a better tomorrow.
