Socio-cultural group, The Ohanaeze Ndi Igbo has called on Igbos to forget the agitations for Biafra and focus on the calls for restructuring the nation.
President of the group, Chief John Nnia Nwodo on Thursday pointed out that the agitation for Biafra was not an Igbo agenda. He made these statements during the Inauguration of state and local government executives of the Abia state chapter of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo.He said;
“We should forget Biafra and insist on restructuring,” adding, however, that no Igbo is happy with the situation of things in Nigeria, “we must seek for peaceful ways of resolving the issues.”
He spoke further that the restoration of Biafra was a tall order due to the numerous constitutional roadblocks, finalizing by saying that the agitations will not be in the overall interest of Igbos and their political relationships with other regions of the country.
He also advised youths, that in as much as they were protesting being marginalized, they should tone down the words and hate speech.
