Ohanaeze youth fault Osinbajo’s consultations on agitations

The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council worldwide (OYC), on Sunday faulted the series of consultations between Acting President Yemi Osinbajo and some Northern and South-East leaders.

The youth in a statement by the OYC publicity secretary, Obinna Adibe said holding such meetings without involving the youth would not achieve the desired outcome.

“We watch with keen interest the on going consultative meetings the Acting President Yemi Osinbajo had with both South-East governors, traditional rulers, Igbo leaders and, also a similar one he held with Northern leaders.

“We observed that Osinbajo’s meetings with all these groups lacked youth representation. There were no youth representatives in the consultations, which makes the peace meeting a stalemate,” the group stated, according to Daily Post.

‎They saluted the South-East governors for their efforts and vision towards making the South-East peaceful‎, stressing that “such efforts should be sustained in order to ensure safety of lives and property and as well pave the way for the development of our region.”

On the quit notice to Igbos in the North, the Igbo youths said their doors were open for dialogue as violence would do no one any good.
“Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth council worldwide has open doors for dialogue with Ethnic nationality Youth leaders across the country to find lasting peace, especially as it regards the safety of Igbos in every part of the country.

“We have decided to sacrifice our freedom and resources to ensure that lasting peace is achieved, as regards the safety of Igbos in the 19 northern states ahead of the October 1 ultimatum from the northern youth.

“We have built a bridge of dialogue for peaceful co existence. We will not allow this opportunity to pass us by if there’s any opening for dialogue with other ethnic nationality Youth leaders across Nigeria.‎”
