Atiku chairs launch of Chido Onumah's new book, to We are all Biafrans'

Former Vice President and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Atiku Abubakar would be Chairman at the launch of the seminal book, "We are all Biafrans", a collection of essays written over a three year period on the national question in Nigeria by a renowned Journalist, Author and Blogger, Mr. Chido Onumah.

The launching will take place today at the
Shehu Musa Yar' Adua Center in Abuja.

Onumah in the book contends that most, if not all, of the problems of Nigeria today are located in the way the country is structured. Like in his previous books, he makes an eminently logical case for an urgent socio-political restructuring of Nigeria by way of genuine federalism, in order to ward off a looming catastrophe that could endanger the collective wellbeing of Nigerians.

He argues that the country needs to engage episodic political convulsions that threaten its very foundation, including Biafra, June 12, Boko Haram, the "National Question", citizenship rights and militancy.

Also, in the book, according to the statement, he raised fundamental questions such as, what is Nigeria and who is a Nigerian?

If Nigeria was a Federal Republic, what constitutes or should constitute the federating units?
