Ohanaeze Youth Council condemns Buhari’s offensive statements

The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council, OYC, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to withdraw his offensive statements against the Igbo nation.

The OYC responded to Buhari’s interview with Arise Television in which he described the Igbo nation as a point in a circle.

Buhari said, “IPOB is like a point in a circle. Even if they want to get out, they won’t have access anywhere.

“And given the way they’re spread across the country, having businesses and assets, I don’t think IPOB knows what they’re talking about.

“Either way, we say we’ll talk to them in the language they understand. We will organize the police and the army to prosecute them.

His statement has since been interpreted to mean that all Igbos in Nigeria are like “dots in a circle”.

In a statement released after their meeting in Enugu, the OYC said it was unacceptable for a sitting president to denigrate the entire Igbo race and thus set the stage for further attacks against them.

The communiqué signed by OYC President General Mazi Okwu Nnabuike and Secretary General Comrade Obinna Achionye said: “We remember how President Buhari’s government quickly banned the IPOB and called it a terrorist organization. And now he has come to designate all Igbos as members of the IPOB and a point in a circle.

“By implication, his statement will undoubtedly expose Ndigbo to yet another massacre, as we have already seen. No wonder they arrest and kill many young Igbo in the name of IPOB.

“We reject in its entirety this label of terrorism on the whole Igbo nation, especially when it comes from the same president whose parents committed bloodshed across the country but his government continues to defend them.

“In any case, no matter how Buhari sees Ndigbo, we are not disturbed; the Igbo people are making waves all over the world and if that qualifies them as a point in a circle, so be it. “

The OYC, however, said they were not happy that leaders in the Southeast did not ostensibly warn security chiefs about the murder and indiscriminate arrest of Igbo youths.

He said: “We have been following closely the meeting that the leaders of the South East held with a delegation of the federal government in Enugu, but we are not very happy that they did not ask for the immediate withdrawal of the troops. from the South East. Nor did they demand an end to the massive massacres of Igbo youth.

“It is also unfortunate that Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State is now waking up and calling for dialogue. We had advised him on several occasions to embrace dialogue but he refused, he now does at night what he was supposed to do in the morning.

“We are saddened that he is waking up after hundreds of lives of young Igbo people have been wasted on the pretext that they are members of IPOB.

“The OYC urges the governors of the South East not to shirk their responsibility to protect the population. They must stand firm and defend their citizens, ”added the OYC.
