‘Nnamdi Kanu’s solution to the Biafran matter is unacceptable’ – Ohanaeze Ndigbo

According to the apex Igbo socio-cultural group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, the clamour for secession from the Nigerian state, is not the solution to the problems of the South East region.
Secretary General of the group, Dr. Joe Nwaorgu, says Ohanaeza Ndigbo does not align with the strategy of the founder of Radio Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, in addressing the marginalisation of the Igbos.
Nwaorgu said Ohanaeze Ndigbo believes that the problems of the Ndigbo could be resolved within the country and not through violence.
“Kanu’s solution to the Biafran matter is different from ours and not acceptable to us. Kanu and the Ohanaeze Ndigbo are operating on different sides of the coin. He and the youths believe in going out to the streets to protest. Kanu’s despondency is much deeper than ours. I am not trying to justify his method but we demand his unconditional release.”
 “For us that witnessed the civil war, our approach now is that Nigeria’s problems can be solved within Nigeria and by Nigerians. Ohanaeze will not support secession and violence. This is why we are agitating that the 8th National Assembly implements the confab report evolved during the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan.
This includes the recommendations of the 2014 National Conference. The National Assembly must not fail us.”
“What we are fighting for in the present dispensation is that the wickedness of over 35 years after the civil war should be corrected. “Justice and equity must be the hallmarks of the new government. We maintain our stand that the confab report should be implemented.”
