Abstract

The purpose of this study is to examine how the agitations for self-determination by the Ingenious People of Biafra (IPOB), has impacted Nigeria’s national development. With the help of questionnaires and interviews, 400 respondents from south-eastern Nigeria were investigated using a descriptive survey methodology. Simple percentage tables were used to illustrate the data, and Chi-square tests were used to assess the hypotheses (X2).

The major finding is that the agitations for self-determination by the Ingenious People of Biafra (IPOB) are a setback to national development as they pose a threat to economic development, promote political instability, and open the country for internal and external security attacks, among other
national endangerments. This entails that the IPOB activities will destroy Nigeria’s already crippled national development if a well-thought-out solution is not proffered. In light of this, the writer propose that Nigeria holds a referendum to vote on the IPOB’s right to self-determination in order to put an end to the threat.

Keywords:  Ingenious People of Biafra (IPOB), agitations, political stability, economic development, and national security.
