Stop Threatening Others, Dialogue With North, South – Ohanaeze To Igbos

Share This

The Ohanaeze Ndigbo General Assembly Worldwide, on Friday, said the Southeast must unite and dialogue with the Western and Southern parts of the country.

The body said dialoguing with other regions was the only way the Igbos could get anything from Nigeria.

In a statement signed and forwarded to DAILY POST, Amb Tony Chiemelu Obizoba, the Director-General Strategic Planning and Implementations of Ohanaeze, said the Southeast must stop threatening other tribes and regions.

Obizoba cautioned those making derogatory remarks about other regions and attributing them to Ohanaeze to desist.

He said, “Having been through the many discrepancies resulting from the cacophony of voices and which has had adverse effects on the fortunes of the race, we are hereby making it clear to Nigerians and constituted authorities in the country that the only legitimate body that can speak on behalf of Ndi Igbo in terms of matters of importance is the Ohanaeze Ndigbo General Assembly Worldwide being the one registered by the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) and so recognised by law to do so.

“We also must seize this opportunity to dissociate ourselves as Ohanaeze Ndigbo General Assembly Worldwide from those divisive comments such as threatening the sovereignty of Nigeria, other tribes and regions should Igbo not get what it desires in the project called Nigeria on the time they are specifying, mainly 2023 elections.

“Our position on the forthcoming general elections is that Ndi Igbo, if they need any position, should build bridges and consult widely within the various divides, not asking anybody that has declared interest to drop his interest and wait for Ndi Igbo to come and present its candidate.

“We urge our people that if we must have a stake in the project called Nigeria, then we have to begin to build bridges with immediate effect. We have to build a wider consultation from the stakeholders of Ndigbo.
