Ohanaeze Ndigbo Says ''We Are Not Backing Nnamdi Kanu, IPOB,We Want Restructuring

Igbo socio-political group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has distanced itself from the agitation for secession by Nnamdi Kanu and his group, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).


Ohanaeze Ndigbo insisted that restructuring of Nigeria was the solution to the political and economic problems, not break up.

Ohanaeze Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Chuks Ibegbu, said this in a chat with newsmen in Abuja on Monday.

Ibegbu stated that what the body wants is a country that has a level playing field for all sections of the country.

His words: “A Nigeria that gives each part of the country a sense of belonging. For example, in a country of 36 states, the South-East has five states and 95 local governments; while Kano State alone has 44 local governments.


“The other time, we saw the statistics of recruitment in the Department of State Services with Katsina State alone having 51 allocations. Yet, we have the Federal Character Commission.

“We want the FCC to investigate the recent recruitment in the DSS. Abia State got only six allocations; Enugu State, six; Katsina, the home state of President Muhammadu Buhari, got 51 slots.’’

Ibegbu said that there was no level playing ground in Nigeria, stressing that Abia State alone produces more graduates than 10 states in the North combined, “yet you gave them only seven opportunities and gave Katsina 51.


“We are not saying Nigeria should be divided, but the issues these young men are talking about should be addressed. Instead, it seems they want people like Nnamdi Kanu to shut up without addressing the issues, judging by the bail conditions they gave him.”

All I can say is, since there's segregation amongst us, the centre cannot hold. Biafra or death was the slogan before, now I'm not sure I will wanna give mysef migraine over confusionists.

Weldone sir. Restructuring. Equal playing field for every Nigerians. For gullible individuals asking for a dead project, kwontinue.

GBO(S),YORUBA(S) AND HAUSA(S)...
Some Igbo want Biafra
Some youths and elders in the North wants Igbo to leave North.
The Igbos are saying"we have investments in your areas and cannot leave them"
And not all of them supported Biafra. Some Hausa said Igbo should not go but stay.
The poor Hausa man is riding Okada, Keke,cleaning shoes and doing a security job.
The poor Igbo man is riding Okada,Keke,a petty trader and a low income earner.
The poor Yoruba man is riding Okada,a petty trader and a worker they owe his salary.
The poor Hausa man sleeps under the bridge as Alamajiri and unsure of his future.
The poor Yoruba man sleeps under the bridge as Alaye and not sure when to have the next meal.
The poor Igbo man sleeps under the bridge as Ofeke,hoping one day to be rich and excel in life.
It is pertinent to note that the poor from all ethnic groups in Nigeria have everything in common and so is the rich.
Do not allow the agitation of an Igbo man who lives in UK or USA for Biafra to cause the killings of the Igbo on the street of Kaduna,Kano or Katsina
Do not allow the Alhaji whose children are living abroad to persuade you to go and start killing on the street of Imo, Calabar or Abia
The problem in the country is not the agitation of any ethnic group but the unity of the elite and the disunity of the masses.
How many times have you taken your agitation to question your local government Chairmen and your state governors?
Why have you not asked your Governors through agitation how they spent bailout fund, security votes and billions in monthly allocations?
Why have you not agitated against that government official whose mansions you go to beg for help and the kids live like kings and queens?
Sad to note;
All the Governors love themselves
All the past Presidents love themselves
All the senators love themselves
All the top government officials love themselves
All the looters love and protect themselves
Why can't you and I love ourselves?
Why cant we combine efforts and fight them?
Why do we fight ourselves and kill ourselves?
Why do we allow them the freedom we don't have?
Remember,a good Nigeria is better than a good Arewa,Oduduwa or Biafra.
Love of one's tribe is not bad, but if that love is followed by hatred for other tribes, then it's wrong and sinful!!!

Ohanaeze Ndigbo is right.Restructuring, is what Nigeria needs now,not division.

There will never be level playing ground

Where in the world do you have equal playing field. Just name one multiethnic, multicultural nation where you have equal playing field. The three major ethnic groups, Hausa, Yoruba and Igbo dominate everything in our federation and they are the cry babies shouting maginalisation. The minorities are neglected, suppressed. Yet you idiots will not stop making noise. Hausas, yorubas and igbos are the problems of our nation. If this so called majority tribes can deal with their bruised egos and hide their foolishness Nigeria will be a great nation. Ehimare

Useless people. Why did you not say that since. One statement from arewa don reset your brains. See them begging all over the place. U for go back to your landlocked biafra that don't benefit Nigeria in anyway now. Bastards.

The south-south and south west have been singing with restructuring our federation for decades , you guys were sleeping. Under Jonathan the igbos were rewarded with juicy ministerial positions and others. There was no noise, no shout of marginalisation. Abegi....Ehimare

Push up said...

Exactly... That's all we need, haha see the people they are giving employment in cbn, mostly hausa Muslims, let everything go round, cus at the end of the day it's not anyone's fathers property. That's why they keep wanting the president to be a hausa muslim so they can contine to have control... Unfair #igbo lives matter

Thank you. God bless you.

Omotola Brianna said...

Thank you. During 2015 election Nnamdi Kanu was part of those preaching one Nigeria and immediately Buhari wins, the fight for division started. How on earth do one tribe want to have the sole leadership of a country of three ethnic groups????????

ego lag said...

Restructuring is what we want. Shikena. I will NEVER support Biafra. I want a better Nigeria. I love Nigeria my country but not with the current status quo.
Proudly Igbo babe but not with Biafra

Fab Mum said...

I give you a 100 kisses.
You spoke well.

Fab Mum said...

Don't be an ignorant tribalistic
This is what the igbos have been sayinf. This is what birthed the idea of biafra. This is why people are going up and down shouting biafra or death because they felt the federal government has refused to accept restructuring of the government. Words from arewa didn't reset any brain

Atleast if you are going to be a tribalistic person, don't do it while basking in ignorance

The way you people keep shouting juicy is funny to me. 😂 Aside Stella oduah who else pleqse had a juicy post seeing that Jonathan was trying to gain favor with the hausas and gave them juicy post

Don't mind the youths who have had no experience of war agitating for what they have no knowledge about.

Pure Nigerian said...

All these chest beating will allow none of you anons to realize that you both will lose at the end of the day. One wonders why some youths are perpetually angry or quickly dismissive of other viewpoints. These attributes do not make a leader.

Pure Nigerian said...

You guys stop with the 'juicy posts' comments. It is used by people who are politically unaware and just feel like throwing in some words just so they'd partake in a conversation.
The Igbos had juicy posts and got development as well during the era of Jonathan, you might as well add.
P.S I ain't Igbo and I do not support Biafra.

Fab Mum said...

Sense eludes you anon
Keep basking in your foolishness and ignorance.

Sorry I had a sensible interaction with you...

Fab Mum said...

@pure Nigeria, exactly. They think because they are anon they are covered. I'm not pro biafra. I will never supoirt it because I don't want a repeat of history. But restructuring of the government is needed. Nigeria is a great country. See the way they came thru for the late police man. And it was championed by a yoruba man. I have yoruba friends and believe me, I know an intelligent yoruba person is wise and not as foolish as the comments I see people leaving here..

Fab Mum said...

Please if you want to lie, lie very well. Nnamdi kanu has never preached on Nigeria. YouTube is there. Go andand listen to all his radio biafra which started even when goodluck was president. All he has been doing is preach biafra and calling for war and what not. Don't lie unnecessarily to butter your point and make you seem less Tribalistic.

Fab Mum said...

The ignorance here is alarming

Comments like juicy post, arewa spoke and they calmed down and much more make me dizzy.. Oh Lord.

Omotola Brianna said...

Babe you don't have to insult me. So Goodluck Jonathan is no more a biafran.

Omotola Brianna said...

Babes you don't have to insult me to make your point. That's what they called being civil and mature. People already have answers to you before I checked back.

AGELESS T said...

@fabmum: well said.

Fab Mum said...

Lmao. Learn the dufference between having a conversation and tackling. @omotola. And yes I'll like a link to that because I have never known nnamdi as a peaceful person. And Google just failed me on that. Probably my search wasn't right.

Omotola Brianna said...

If calling me a liar just because you didn't see what I saw,is ur way of having conversations. Then I'm sorry cos I feel maturity shld be more than that.

Omotola Brianna said...

And ma'am I said screenshot not link. Civil and mature pple don't have conversations by calling themselves liar.

Good luck is not a biafran @omotola.u Yoruba illiterate! We the Niger delta aren't part of biafra. Omotola go back to school
