The European Union has supported a
Referendum for Biafra, and has called for
such referendum to be carried out
within 90 Days. EU says it will only
recognize Biafra born out of
international Law through the
Referendum and not armed rebellion.
They also called on Nigeria to release all
political prisoners, and for Nigeria to
respect Human Rights of all citizens and
to withdraw from using the military to
crack down on demonstrators. The EU
said that while it has strong ties with
Nigeria, “protection of human rights and
fundamental freedoms remains a priority
for the EU and we encourage the
authorities [Nigeria] in every occasion to
respect such rights.” Federica Mogherini,
European Union High Representative for
Foreign Affairs and Security has replied
Biafra agitators and the Organization of
Emerging African States (OEAS) over their
call for a referendum.The OEAS had
earlier requested that the European
Union High Representative for Foreign
Affairs and Security utilizes their good
office to help bring about a referendum
for Biafra’s independence.
The OEAS also called for release of all
Biafran political prisoners, a stand down
of Nigerian forces, and a snap
referendum to be held within 90 days. In
response to their request, Mogherini
replied Dr., Jonathan Levy, OEAS Chief
Administrative Officer, stressing that, the
European Union’s official position is that
while it has strong diplomatic and
economic ties with Nigeria, “protection
of human rights and fundamental
freedoms remains a priority for the EU
and we encourage the authorities
[Nigeria] in every occasion to respect
such rights.”
The EU went on to advise the OEAS and
Biafrans that self-determination and
border changes must be in accordance
with established international law. The
OEAS has called for an internationally
recognized referendum on Biafra
independence or autonomy. The EU has
indicated it will only recognize a Biafra
born via international law and not armed
secession.
To achieve a referendum, the OEAS
advises all nonviolent means should be
utilized including general strikes,
economic boycotts, work actions,
demonstrations, lawsuits, and civil
disobedience. Nigeria is a member of
The International Labor Organization
(ILO). The ILO recognizes the right to
engage in general strikes and the right
to strike is also recognized in the
International Covenant on Economic,
Social and Cultural Rights of 1966 (Article
8(1)(d)).
