South East, South South Network, SESSNet, has lamented the rejection of the proposal for resource control and devolution of powers in the ongoing constitution amendment by the Senate,  saying it is either restructuring or separation.

The group in a statement by Chief Aloysious Osuji said the rejected proposals would have solved the country’s current problem. ‎

The statement partly reads: “In view of popular separatist tendencies, especially in the south, it is either restructuring or separation. One must be accepted. The Senate having rejected restructuring implicitly means that they have voted for separation.

“Today’s vote merely validated the general belief that politicians are out of touch with the populace and Senate’s decision today has simply added fire to the agitation for self-determination by some regions in the country.”
