Ohaneze Ndigbo Countermand Nnamdi Kanu's Declaration To Boycott Anambra Election, Says Anambra Is Still Part Nigeria

ANAMBRA, nay Igbos, are still part and parcel of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. Yes, we are not happy with our treatment in Nigeria.  Yes, some of us want Biafra. Yes some of us prefer a restructured Federal Republic of Nigeria. But the fact remains that we are still part and parcel of the present federal Republic of Nigeria, bound by its laws, no matter how repressive or injust.  Our approach to reforms of our laws even if it leads to self-determination or restructuring must be lawful.

The above statement was made by the President of the igbo socio-cultural group, Ohaneze Ndigbo, Chief Nnia John Nwodo, during a session with the Anambra State House of Assembly, to clear the air regarding the Anambra November 18th Guber Election that Nnamdi kanu has called his IPOB followers to boycott.

Chief Nwodo argued that Anambra people should not by any means be be denied the opportunity to choose their own leader. And speaking about Nnamdi temerity, questioned why he should descend to the arena, when he is not even from Anambra and dictate for Anambra People when to vote, whether to vote or who to vote for.

Chief Nwodo who was veracious in his vituperation Nnamdi Kanu's approach, stated, "Our approach to reforms of our laws even if it leads to self-determination or restructuring must be lawful. We must convine other Nigerians of our points of views, we must strive to make others share our concoctions.  Our language must be civil, respectful and leads to consensus building. We must resist any attempt to turn division amongst us, as to which way we must go, becoming a source of altercafion between us".

Ohaneze Ndigbo also bemoans the inability of the Inspector General police to arrest the Arewa Youth group that issued the quit notice, stating that ndigbo living in northern Nigeria are in complete awe and consternation regarding how safe they will be after October 1st.

Notable stakeholders present at the meeting where, Chief Damian Okeke Ogene (Ohaneze Ndigbo, Anambra State Chairman); Hon. Bar. Rita Mmaduagwu(Speaker, Anambra State House of Assembly); Chief Sir Victor Umeh(Fmr. Apga National Chairman); and members, Anambra State Assembly.

Chief Sir. Victor Umeh while speaking, reiterated that the glamour for war is not the right way to go. He called on various agitators to follow the proper legal process as means of actualizing their project.

Chief Nna Nwodo assures that the session with Anambra State House of Asssembly is the first of its kind and will be replicated across other South Eastern States.
