Speaking for the youths, the secretary general of the group, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike, explained that restructuring of Nigeria overseen by a leader from the South would result in equity and fairness to all Nigerians.

According to him, it is referendum or nothing. He said Aburi agreement was reneged on by Nigerian government and that the 2014 National Conference was dumped where it was coated by dust until the Biafra agitation became intense and it was remembered.
In another incident, the immediate past governor of Edo state, Adams Oshiomhole, has faulted former military president, Ibrahim Babangida, for saying it was time to restructure Nigeria.
Oshiomhole, said rather than call for restricting, Babangida should apologize to Nigerians for helping to bring the country to its present level.
The former governor made the statement on Thursday, June 29, when he spoke through the general secretary of national union of textile, garment and tailoring workers, Comrade Issa Aremu, at the 5th triennial delegates conference of the petroleum and natural gas senior staff association of Nigeria (PENGASSAN) in Abuja, the Nation reports.
