Open-Grazing/IPOB sit-at-home: Ohanaeze youths take stand, give governors ultimatum

Ohanaeze

The youth wing of apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, on Wednesday, told the South-East Governors to rise to the occasion as the September ultimatum on the ban on open-grazing draws to a close.

DAILY POST recalls that the Southern Governors had during their last meeting in Lagos set September 1, 2021 as the deadline for the ban on open-grazing in the region.

However, with less than one month to go, no Southeast State has passed law banning open-grazing.

Addressing a press briefing in Enugu, the National President-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youths Worldwide, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike urged the governors to immediately transmit executive bill to the Houses of Assembly to that effect.

The group also asked the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, to reconsider the sit-at-home it declared with effect from next Monday.

Ohanaeze equally declared that the Nigeria President of Igbo extraction was non-negotiable in 2023.

Today, I welcome you all to this press briefing on behalf of the millions of Igbo youths at home and in the diaspora.

We have keenly watched events both in the polity and in Igboland and this is the time to make our stand known as we continue to push for the restoration of our place in the polity.

May we state clearly that the Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youths Worldwide under my leadership stand totally for the defense of the interest of Ndigbo. We will never allow anything that will go against the collective interest and unity of our people.
