Apex Igbo socio-cultural Organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo worldwide, has Commended the Southeast governors for showing interest to halt the sit-at-home order in the zone.
But Ohanaeze added that the outcome of Abuja’s meeting with Igbo leaders has shown no answers to end the insecurity challenges that had hampered the socioeconomic and social activities in the Southeast region.
A statement signed and issued on Sunday by the Secretary-General, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, tackled the South-East governors and leaders adding that the situation at hand is beyond their control.
According to the statement, the choice of Abuja where Igbo predicaments were discussed makes a caricature of it, as is a clear indication that the conveners and those behind the meetings have lost control of the South-East to non-State actors.
“Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide has commended the Southeast Governors for showing interest in halting the Sit-at- home orders in the Southeast, but the outcome of their Abuja meeting with Igbo leaders has shown that there are no answers in sight to end the insecurity challenges and Sit at Home order that had incapacitated the economic and social activities in the Southeast.
“Even one of the Southeast Governors acknowledged that the situation at hand is beyond their control and the choice of Abuja venue where Igbo predicaments were discussed makes a caricature of it, as it is a clear indication that the conveners and those behind the meetings have lost the control of the southeast to non-state actors and are frightened to convene such meetings in the Southeast, a proof of negligence and defeat”.
“Ndigbo should know that the solution to end the Sit at Home orders is in the Southeast not in Abuja, in search for peace and to stabilize the Southeast, we have met today (Sunday) with critical stakeholders and nonviolent Biafra agitators on consultative sessions to find out remedies and the best approach to resolve the problem and end it once and for all.
The body faulted the council of Elders of Ohanaeze Ndigbo led by Prince Richard Ozobu on why some Igbo Political leaders who have abandoned their States in the East, should now converge in a foreign land at Abuja and resort to the help of foreigners to resolve a matter of Igbo affairs with homemade solutions.
Stating that Biafra agitators should be conscious that wrecking down the economy of the southeast and killing innocent citizens through Sit a Home Order would never affect the activities of the Federal Government in any way.
It started that the silence of the Past and Present-day Federal Government shows that so far as there is no disruption of oil and gas exploration or threat to national security, Southeast self-inflicted insecurity should go on and devour the Ndigbo.
“The sit-at-home orders are here in South East not in Abuja and the reason why those who are opposing the release of Nnamdi Kanu from the Niger Delta and the North, is that they comprehend that some set of political Igbo Leaders are Toothless bulldogs who have lost the control of the southeast to the non-state actors.
