Southern Nigerian groups are taking the agitation for restructuring the country to United Kingdom with a maiden international summit.
The groups involved in the Diaspora agitation for restructuring are South-East/South-South Network, Afenifere Renewal Group Uk, Bendel Federation and Igbo Ekunie Initiative.
The inaugural meeting is expected to hold on Tuesday, August 22, 2017 in London.
In a statement issued and signed by a Co-Convener of the groups Dr Philip Idaehor, the Southern groups would use the medium to draw the attention of the international community to the need for restructuring of the country for better performance.
According to the groups, next week’s meeting will be first in a series of round-table consultations to deliberate on the way forward for Nigeria following the defeat of constitutional amendments aimed at restructuring the federation at the National Assembly.
“The round-table series will form a platform to ponder on various problems bedevilling the country since attaining independence and fashion out ways out of the country’s age long crisis”, the statement said.
“Planned to be a quarterly event in the Diaspora, the round-table Southern Nigerians summit will address various issues facing the Federal Republic of Nigeria, and at the end of the meeting, the groups will come up with memorandum that will be submitted to National Assembly for consideration”, the statement concluded.
