According to the CNG, the defendants should immediately provide a framework for the actualisation of agitators’ demand for self-determination instead of constitutional review.

According to the CNG spokesman, “One of the issues for determination before this Hon. Court in the substantive suit has to do with the legal obligation of the 2nd – 4th defendants/Respondents to provide a framework that will pave the way for the self-determination of the South-eastern states so as to leave the geographical entity called Nigeria before any further step is taken to review the Constitution?’”
