Ohanaeze Youths Warn NLC Not To Bring Protest to Igbo Land

NLC, TUC Gives Govs Ultimatum on N35k Minimum Wage

The youth wing of the apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has issued a warning to the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) against organizing any form of protest in Igbo land.

Recall that the NLC had previously planned nationwide protests to take place across the country on February 27 and 28, in response to the prevailing hardships experienced by citizens.

However, in a statement released to journalists on Monday, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike, the National President of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide, asserted that the NLC’s protest would not be permitted in any part of Igbo land.

Okwu highlighted the unjust treatment suffered by the Igbo people in Nigeria and expressed disappointment that no other region had stepped forward to assist them.

Furthermore, he presented three demands to President Bola Tinubu, which included the release of the detained IPOB leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the allocation of an additional state to the South-East, and an extra ministerial slot.

He said:

Under the government of ex-president Muhammadu Buhari, Ndigbo were treated as pieces of garbage, but no other region raised a voice even in sympathy with us.

“It was such that there was no single Igbo man in Buhari’s security council for eight years, but the entire country moved on as though nothing was wrong with it.

“Even under the present government, the South-East has the least number of ministers, and nobody has ever seen anything wrong with it.

“Ndigbo were also not spared during the last general elections owing to some of the choices they made; they faced all manner of insults and attacks; yet no one cared to defend them.

“Why then will anyone want to drag Ndigbo to protest under whatever guise. We say a big ‘No’ to it and warn those planning it to look elsewhere.

“Bola Ahmed Tinubu is our president with whom we are well pleased and we shall keep supporting him.”
