Breaking: Ohaneze Ndi Igbo Reviews Igbo Presidency, Insecurity, Sit-At-Home Order


The National Leadership of Ohaneze Ndi Igbo under the leadership of Ambassador, Prof. George Obiozor has addressed issues relating to Igbo Presidency and insecurity in Nigeria.

Prof. Obiozor in his opening remarks at the Imeobi meeting, holding at the National Secretariat of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, noted that since the inauguration of their current NEC  in 2021, they have been confronted with a few challenges, namely; Insecurity, 2023 Presidency, poor Work environment, financial constraints, Covid-19, etc.

“Insecurity has pervaded almost all Parts of Nigeria, but each geopolitical zone has its peculiarity. The advent of insecurity in the South East is both bizarre and dramatic.

“The southeast had been both adjudged the most serene and peaceful zone in Nigeria until April 5, 2021, when gunmen attacked
the Correctional Facility in Owerri, Imo state and freed a total of 1,844 prison inmates.

“Since the April 5 episode, insecurity in the South East has attained an unprecedented unbearable crescendo”.

“In condemning the spate of violence in the South East, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide also called attention to the strategic capacity of the local non-state actors to Overwhelm a highly fortified State and correction center and discharging a total of 1844
inmates without any arrest”.

“Sit at Home Order: The Monday sit at Home is a slur on the Igbo. It is strange for a group to race the barrel of the gun inwards. Many people have estimated the huge loss the South East incurs every week as a result of the Sit at Home order. Ohanaeze Ndigbo has tried severally to persuade our youths to realize the consequence actions”.

The clamor for an Igbo to be elected as a
The President of Nigeria is orally and historically
justifiable. It is a project every Igbo must commit himself or herself to. To his end, Ohanaeze Ndigbo has made contacts with several Nigerian leaders concerning the right of the South East to produce a President for the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

All the double-dealings about zoning and
rotation of power is an orchestrated conspiracy to deprive the South East of the right to produce a president.

I want to assure all of you that hard as they may try, they will surely fail. Ours is a right and just cause. I wish to use this opportunity to encourage all the Presidential aspirants from the South East to remain focused, tenacious, and optimistic.

We are fully committed to the resolution by the Southern and Middle Belt Leadership Forum (SMBLF) that no Southerner, in fact, a South Easterner for that matter, should denigrate himself or herself with the position of a Vice President.

The Political Action Committee (PAC) of Ohaneze Ndi Igbo will meet several eminent Nigerians to persuade them to appreciate the need for a south Easterner to be elected a president of Nigeria, he concluded.
