Nigerian media outlets are always buzzing with
news about Biafra. People keep talking about
it, whether praising it or disapproving of the
whole idea. Its believers and supporters never
cease their efforts to make Biafra independent,
while people that are against Biafra keep on
bashing them.

The most recent development has shook
everyone once again. And it is the news of the
upcoming referendum for Biafra.

Biafra referendum


The month of June ended with a hopeful
promise for the country of Biafra. The United
States President Donald Trump announced the
Biafra referendum date. It is to be held on July
21, 2017. This news was shared on Facebook by
the Indigenous People of Biafra (or IPOB for
short) representative in the US, Candy

According to her post, five leaders of the IPOB
movement in the US will come to the White
House for the referendum. Donald Trump, who
has been a long-time supporter of Biafra, has
granted his political power to the Biafran

This development has been a long time coming.
For years, members of IPOB and other pro-
Biafra organizations have been rallying and
protesting, trying to make their voice heard by
the Nigerian government. For example, before
the date for the referendum was announced,
IPOB threatened to sabotage the government
elections in Anambra State. Now that the date
for the referendum is set, they are one step
closer to the recognition of Biafra.


Biafra supporters and believers rejoice, as they
see this referendum as a guarantee that Biafra
will rise again. Their positive attitude is also
fueled by government officials from other
countries. State representatives from Great
Britain and Turkey voiced their support of the
movement for the independence of Biafra.
However, many claim that the referendum will
not necessarily grant Biafra freedom. One of
those people is Governor Aminu Bello Masari.

In a recent interview, he said that, referendum
or no referendum, Biafra has no place in the
world. He thinks that Nigeria should stay
united, as it is stronger when the three main
tribe (Igbo, Hausa and Yoruba) stand together.

In Masari’s opinion, Biafra is just another
fluke. He compared Nnamdi Kanu, the leader
of IPOB, to Boko Haram, who tried to forge an
empire. He also drew an analogy between IPOB
and the O'odua People's Congress (a Yoruba
nationalist organization). Governor Masari said
that members of pro-Biafra groups are not
fighting for the idea, but more for the political
power it will bring them.

Many people like Masari condemn pro-Biafra
and other nationalist groups for separatist
ideas. However, even Masari himself does not
actually blame them for wanting independence.
People will grow tired of being forced to live in
the country they do not believe in. That is why
they took a stand. This referendum will
hopefully resolve the situation and have a
positive result for everyone involved.
