Reverse terrorist tag on IPOB, Ohaneze Ndigbo Youth Council tells Buhari

THE leadership of Ohaneze Ndigbo youth council worldwide has called on president Mohammadu Buhari to reverse the tag on Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB as a terrorist organisation in the spirit of National Reconciliation.

According to the group who claimed they will lead any struggle to ensure self-determination is not tagged terrorism, they promised to ensure peaceful co-existence between all stakeholders in the Southeast.

Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, leader of the youth group further appealed to IPOB members not to go to the street now that Nnamdi Kanu was sighted at Isreal observing the sabbath ordinances and prayers in the spirit of jubilation in order not to create political tension in the South East and South-South.

Calling on Nnamdi Kanu to change strategy and embrace the hands of genuine Igbo brothers and leaders, the group called on the South East Governors to close ranks and rebuild the palace of HRH Eze I. Kanu, which was destroyed during the Python dance.

“The leadership of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide led by Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro received the news of sighting Nnamdi Kanu at Israel and observing the Sabbath ordinances and Prayers.

“We urge President Buhari to grant him Presidential pardon and squash all legal proceedings against him in the spirit of National reconciliation and forgiveness. If the Federal government can release Boko Haram detainees in Kano and also planning to give Amnesty to Boko Haram, this gesture should be extended to IPOB, they should reverse the tag of IPOB as a terrorist organisation and allow peace to reign.

“We beg the IPOB followers not to go to the street now in the spirit of jubilation in order not to create political tension in the South East and South/south and so as not to fall victims of security agents until OYC persuades Federal Government to reverse its decisions against IPOB.

“We urge the South East Governors to close ranks and rebuild the palace of HRH Eze I. Kanu, which was destroyed during the Python dance, and ask the leader, Nnamdi Kanu to change strategy and embrace the hands of genuine Igbo brothers and leaders. We still ask IPOB to have a rethink on its decision of Proscribing the parent body of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, and disruption of Ohanaeze events and gathering.

“OYC will lead any struggle to ensure self-determination is not tagged terrorism, and ensure there is peaceful coexistence between all stakeholders in Southeast”.
