President Muhammadu Buhari, again, has disclosed that there is nothing like a referendum for the people agitating for Biafra, while advising them to form a political party that will rule Nigeria.

The president stated that the choice left for Biafran activists is to form a political party that would advance their interest within the Nigerian democratic space.
The president’s advice to Biafrans activists came a day after commercial activities in some key cities in the South East, and South-South of Nigeria were grounded following a stay at home order from the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB ).
There were also protests in various cities around the world by Biafran activists demanding the release from prison of IPOB's leader, Mr. Nnamdi Kanu.
It will be recalled that, president Buhari had been dismissive of Biafran agitators as kids who did not see the Biafra-Nigeria Civil War.
A few weeks ago, while speaking to Youth Corp members who visited him at his country home in Daura, the president pressed on them to ask their friends to forget Biafra.
