Ohanaeze Ndigbo Rejects Nnamdi Kanu, Says No Sane Igbo Person Will Pray For Another Biafran War
Nov 21, 2015 – Ohanaeze Ndigbo: No Sane Igbo Person Will Pray For Another Biafran War, We’re Against Nnamdi Kanu
Yesterday, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, an apex Igbo socio-cultural organization disowned Radio Biafra Boss, Nnamdi Kanu and his support for Biafra agitation.
While addressing reporters in Awka, Ohanaeze Chairman, Dr. Chris Eluomunoh, said no right thinking person would support what he called the madness of the group .
In his words:
“You will notice that Ohanaeze has been very silent on the issue of Biafra insurgency, though the youth wing of Ohanaeze has been speaking on it. Ohanaeze, as the Igbo cultural group, cannot support Biafra and we dissociate ourselves from it totally.
“Igbo people have contributed much to the development of Nigeria and we cannot allow some people to jeopardise the lives and efforts of millions of Igbo residing in all parts of Nigeria.
“We believe that anybody who has any issue to settle with the Federal Government should use dialogue and that is why we participated in the last National Conference. No sane Igbo person would want to witness a repeat of the kind of thing that happened during the Civil War.
“(Chief Odumegwu) Ojukwu, who led the Biafra war, returned to Nigeria from exile and contested elections in Nigeria, which showed that he was fully integrated into Nigeria and was a full-fledged Nigerian before he died.”
