Oba Abdulrasheed Adewale Akanbi, the Oluwo of Iwoland in Osun, has challenged Nigeria’s federal government, led by President Muhammad Buhari, with healing the wounds inflicted on different ethnic groups, particularly the Igbos, by the 1967 civil war.

Oba Akanbi emphasized the necessity for a unification conference to evaluate the damage caused by the civil war to Igbos and to offer palliative capable of fostering long-term affinity among the nation’s various ethnic groupings.

Oluwo praised the Igbos’ resilience and magnanimity for Nigeria, characterizing the harm as tremendous.

He said that the Igbos are significant players in Nigeria’s technical development, creativity, and invention, and he urged the federal government to convene a stakeholders conference to evaluate and provide skilled assistance worthy of eradicating the harms created by war damages.

He also promised to pay a visit to Igbo rulers shortly to socialize and discuss the country’s unity.

Oluwo’s press secretary, Alli Ibraheem, issued the following statement:

“The Nigerian Civil War, which lasted from July 1967 to January 15, 1970, caused enormous devastation.” The Igbos suffered the greatest loss of human life and property. They’re like brothers. The wound caused by the conflict is harmful to Nigeria’s unity. Many victims’ and their children’s memories are still vivid.”

“The Nigerian federal government, headed by President Muhammed Buhari, could consider holding a national conference to evaluate and debate palliatives capable of eradicating the sensation and memory of the harms.”

“I applaud the Igbo’s magnanimity and tenacity.” Despite the devastating loss, they have moved on. Today, they are Nigeria’s top industrialists in promoting technical development.

“Organizing a national discussion will promote togetherness and help to heal the wounds caused by the damage.” We must learn from our mistakes, forgive ourselves, and move on. However, in order for the desired unity to be realized, the federal government’s established authority, headed by President Muhammed Buhari, must lead the meeting and provide assistance to the primary victims.

“As the nation’s father, I belittle everyone.” I am the first traditional ruler in Nigeria to purchase an Innoson car manufactured in Nigeria. I’ve organized a trip to see certain Eze Ndigbo, Igwe, and stakeholders in order to promote Nigeria’s unity. I am the Oluwo of Iwoland, but to all Igbos, I am also an Igwe, Obi, and Eze in Yorubaland. “Igbos are our brothers and sisters,” he went on to say.
