Ohaneze youths urge Buhari to implement confab report



2014 confab

OHANAEZE Ndigbo Youth Wing yesterday urged President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately begin the process of implementing resolutions of the 2014 National Conference.
The group maintained the implementation is capable of healing some perceived injustices among the ethnic nationalities in the country.

The Deputy National Chairman of the group, Mr. Arthur Obiorah, who canvassed the idea while addressing journalists after a joint meeting with other Igbo youth groups in Awka yesterday, also urged the Federal Government to commence dialogue with Biafra agitators.

Obiorah, flanked by four other executive members of the group, equally demanded the unconditional release of Nnamdi Kanu, Ben Onwuka and other pro-Biafran agitators.

He criticised the alleged killings, maiming and detentions of the peace loving and non-violent Biafra agitators.

He charged the Federal Government to embark on a conscientious study on why the Igbo youths and others are calling for the restoration of Biafra nation, rather that clamping down on the agitators.

“President Buhari should commence a no-hold-barred negotiation that may see all the Nigerian nationalities meeting and dialoguing on how to come out of the present political impasse,” Obiorah said.

He further urged the Federal Government to toe the path of dialogue while also criticising some Igbo elders, who according to him use “provocative and seditious languages” against the pro-Biafra agitators, saying that such people were not representing the Igbo nation, but their own selfish interests.

“Elders of the South-East region should unite and speak with one voice in the interest of their people and not otherwise. We are committed to peace, justice, equity and fairness,” he said.
