Where as Britain is seeking for Referendum to pull out of 28-nation EU bloc, Biafra is seeking for Referendum to pull out of 3-regional NIGERIA bloc.

According to AFP report, “EU president Donald Tusk warned Tuesday that a ‘Brexit’ referendum’ ” is more unpredictable than ever” and that an EU reform deal to persuade Britons to stay in the bloc would be difficult.

Tusk will chair a February leaders summit in Brussels to discuss British Prime Minister David Cameron’s demands for EU reforms which he deems essential to persuade Britons to vote to stay within the 28-nation bloc. The referendum is due by 2017, but British officials say it could be as early as this summer.”

With respect to Biafra,  “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 Organization of Emerging African States (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.
