Ohanaeze Ndigbo, a Pan Igbo cultural organisation, has urged the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to rethink their seven-day sit-at-home edict.

So long as the Federal Government does not free Mazi Nnamdi Kanu from detention by November 4, 2021, IPOB would hold a seven-day sit-at-home protest in the South-East from November 5 to 10.

Its National Publicity Secretary, Chiedozie Alex Ogbonnia, said:

In a statement, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide urged IPOB to rethink the 7-day sit-at-home order in the southeast of Nigeria from November 5 to 11.

“This is to let the Anambra State Governorship election on November 6 to go forward.

“It is worth noting that Anambra State has a remarkable stable development trajectory.

The finest rural road network and rural community development may be found in Anambra State, if not throughout Nigeria.

“Anambra has the most SMEs and MSMEs in the South East.

Anambra’s newest resource addition is a cargo airport.

First, Onitsha is West Africa’s biggest market. As seen above, Anambra State is a hive of Igbo merchants and craftsmen.

“Anambra is the large Iroko tree that shades most Igbos. Aside from the shade, it attracts many birds to roost on the branches.

“Any damage to the Iroko tree would cause unfathomable chain reactions and disaster for the Igbo.

The South East Legitimacy Crisis, especially in relation to the Anambra State election and the political solution for Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s release, is urgently needed to be addressed by Igbo stakeholders and Youth Leaders, Ohanaeze Ndigbo urges the Chairman, Southeast Governors Forum, and the Governor of Ebonyi State, Engr. Dave Umahi.

“It is crucial to note that one of the roots of the South-East confidence issue is the chasm between the youth and the political leaders.

The leadership of diverse youth organisations should thus be included in any conference aimed at settling the Igbo Land crisis. In other words, the Youth demand proof of our concern for their condition.

We stand with any organisation that resists Igbo alienation in the project Nigeria with moderation, maturity, and wisdom.

“In light of the above, Ohanaeze joins other concerned organisations in the Southern and Middle Belt Leadership Forum chaired by Chief E K Clark.

Aguiyi Ironsi, a Fara Ukwu born Chief, whose funeral is scheduled for November 5 in Umuahia, Abia State, may be severely hampered by the current Igbo social environment. We owe General JTU Aguiyi Ironsi’s soul a responsibility.

Ohanaeze Ndigbo asks Anambra State Governor Chief Willy Obiano to organise a joint meeting of the Anambra State Chapter of Ohanaeze Ndigbo headed by Chief Emeka Udodeme and the Association of Town Union led by Barr. Titus Akpudo to activate meetings in all 181 Anambra Towns.
