Biafra Is The Only Way Out, Ohanaeze Finally Supports IPOB

Finally the Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo has expressed its unflinching support to the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), on the current agitation for a sovereign state of Biafra.
The organisation announced its backing at a press conference organised by its Secretary General, Dr Joe Nworgu even as Ohanaeze  revealed it was set hand over to new national officers in January after election and to confirm the ban placed on the youth wing of the organisation.
 
Nworgu said that the continued marginalisation of the Igbo has made the agitation for the state of  Biafra inevitable, saying that Igbo adults are as disgruntled as the youths who are leading in the agitation for Biafra.
He said Ohanaeze had not condemned the Biafran agitation by the youths, asking “why should we condemn what is true?”
According to him,“the difference is that while the parent body is preaching patience, the youths don’t have time for such; youths must be youths, so they are responding in their own ways. But the problem is the same injustice, insensitivity, exclusionism. All these factors are creating the agitation, but the conclusions are different. The elders or elderly people are advising, thinking that maybe there will be a change of mind, but the youths have no time.”
Nworgu pointed out that the marginalization of the Ndigbo has been on the increase after the civil war.
 
His words: “It has been very bad since 1970, but under Buhari, it has been exacerbated and his attitude and utterances are not helping matters. In fact, Buhari is even acting to provoke us into taking a wrong step and to have a reason for a clampdown. So, we are advising our youths to calm down based on the mindset of our president. When he was appointed I said Ndigbo will desire a president who will be president to all Nigerians because nepotism is corruption.”
He said Buhari’s negligence of the Igbo became manifest when he made his first 32 appointments, but left the Igbo with nothing.
“There are many sectors of governance but when you have taken all the plum things, put them under your town’s people, what do you expect the other people to do, they will feel excluded. That is why Ndigbo are not happy with his administration,” he said.
