"It's Best to Let Biafra Agitators Have Their Way But They're Better Off With Nigeria" - Wole Soyinka

Nigerian nobel laureate Wole Soyinka recently published an article in which he spoke extensively about the Nigerian nation and the old and renewed agitations for Biafra by the Igbo people.

He spoke of the devastating effects of the civil war- caused by the first agitation- and stated that although the agitators at that time were defeated, the agitation wasn't crushed. According to him, the agitation has been passed on and has learned to remain just below the surface over the decades.

Against the declaration of many Nigerian elites, Wole Soyinka believes the unity of Nigeria is negotiable, as it was birthed from negotiations in the first instance. He recommended negotiations and consultations in the face of the current agitations instead of violence and hate speeches.
