It has become a reoccurring phrase on every platform of the Nigerian media -that the unity of Nigeria is not negotiable. I keep wondering and asking why the use of the word "not negotiable"? No one has been able to give me a cogent answer; does it mean that Nigeria is truly a commodity that has been bought on wholesale by the British empire, with the northerners and south-westerners serving as their sales managers?

Though they say Nigeria's unity is not negotiable, yet they (the northerners and south-westerners) negotiate it at any slight feeling of discontent as seen in the words of Lawal Kaita on Daily Independent News Tuesday October 5, 2010 when he said that "The North is determined, if it (Jonathan's election) happens, to make the country ungovernable for President Goodluck Jonathan. Jonathan has to go and he will go. Even if he uses incumbency power to get his nomination on the platform of PDP, he will be frustrated out."

The north not only threatened, they went to as far as instituting Boko-Haram to sabotage and frustrate the government of  Goodluck Jonathan all through his four years in office as the president of Nigeria.

The north also questioned Nigeria's unity and threatened to destroy her when a Second Republic member of the House of Representatives and Russian trained medical doctor, Junaid Mohammed, declared that "blood would flow on the streets of Nigeria should President Jonathan insist on running for presidency in 2015." In spite of these utterances, the north uses the blood-thirsty Nigerian military to torture, oppress and kill Biafrans in any attempt to demand the negotiation of Nigeria (which has never really been a united entity). If Nigeria's unity is not negotiable, why will the northerners never give room for a level play ground for all in Nigerian politics? Instead, they resort to violence, inciting comments and  killing of innocent citizens, mostly of the Igbo origin, as a show of displeasure any moment they lose in an election -as seen during the loss of presidential seat in 2011 by Muhammadu Buhari.

Against this backdrop, the Indigenous People Of Biafra, IPOB wishes to state it clearly to all Northerners, Britain and the world at large that Biafra Restoration is not and will never be negotiable. We the people of Biafra have come to take what rightfully belongs to us through civil means and under established laws that guides humanity as approved by the United Nations which Nigeria is a signatory to.
Therefore, for Nigeria's unity not to be negotiated again by any group, Nigeria government must as a matter of urgency, conduct a referendum for the people of Biafra to determine if they are still willing to remain in Nigeria or opting out of her evil grip tightened by British government.

IPOB will employ all nonviolent means to ensure that referendum is conducted within the shortest time possible. Words of threat by the Nigerian government, prison bars and killings are not enough to deter us from this project. We swore an oath to restore Biafra and we must restore it to rid our children unborn of this plague called Nigeria.
