Count us out! ‘We are not planning to secede’ – Ohanaeze Ndigbo

The Secretary General of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Dr. Joe Nwaorgu, has stated that the Ndigbo has no intentions of seceding from Nigeria.

Nwaorgu condemned the violent activities and threats of the pro-Biafra activists that have become increasingly vociferous.

The Ohanaeze leader said although it is true that the Ndigbo has been marginalised, secession and violence is not the answer.

“We condemn the threats of violence issued by pro-Biafra activists. The Ohanaeze Ndigbo is not supporting violence. So, we don’t support the threats to destroy embassy buildings. Yes, there is marginalisation of the Igbo ethnic group in the President Muhammadu Buhari government but the threat of violence and secession is out of point.

“We are not planning to secede. We are going to sort out the inequality issue with our fellow Nigerians. We are fighting for justice, equity and fair play. That is why we want the recommendations of the 2014 National Conference to be implemented.”

“Man proposes, God disposes. Ohanaeze Ndigbo is not a political party and not under any political party. When the time comes, we shall analyse the situation and take a stand in the best interest of the Ndigbo.

“The political parties are playing their politics. That the North should produce a candidate for the 2019 presidential election is not binding on us. Neither is the APC’s decision binding on us. We shall take our decision and that will be in the interest of the Igbo people.”
