Ohanaeze Buhari

The apex Igbo socio-cultural group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, on Monday tasked the Federal Government led by President Muhammadu Buhari to create additional states in the southeast and granting of full autonomy to regions as away to end the increasing agitations in Nigeria.

The group made this known in a statement signed by the Secretary-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Comrade Okechukwu Isiguzoro, and forwarded to DAILY POST on Monday.

The statement reads in part: “Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide has advised the Federal Government that the best political solutions for the Biafra agitation in the southeast are to provide platforms for genuine dialogue, and initiate the process to interface with neutral Igbo leaders by strictly prohibiting Igbo politicians from the dialogue because t they are part of the problems in the southeast.

“We are aware of the International pressures In the Federal Government presently and why FG should not miss the opportunity to seek for genuine dialogue with neutral Igbo Patriots and Elder statesmen, who will genuinely communicate the plights of IGBO without the usual manipulative infusions of southeast politicians.

“The international pressures on the Federal Government in respect to the extraordinary rendition of Nnamdi Kanu after the Kenyan Government confirmed that there were no official extradition proceedings of Kanu before he was sent to Nigeria, these International pressures have opened up extraordinary circumstances that must be explored by both the Federal Government and non-political Igbo leaders.”

Ohanaeze, however, urged the Federal Government to engage in a genuine dialogue with Igbo leaders that will genuinely communicate the plights of Igbos without the manipulative infusions of southeast politicians, which is what can bring peace in the region.

The group added: “The first step expected from the Federal Government is to set in motion mechanism for peaceful dialogue with Igbo religious leaders, Igbo Traditional rulers and selected few Elder statesmen like Pa Mbazulike Amaechi, Elder KUK Kalu and others, as it’s obvious that FG can’t shy away from peace talks with IGBO before the next court appearance of Nnamdi Kanu 19th January 2022 with the exclusion of Igbo Governors, Igbo National Assembly members, Igbo Federal Executive Council members, Igbo APC and PDP members in attendance.

“The Federal Government should expedite actions that will lead to additional State creation for the southeast and granting of full autonomy of Federating units of all the regions in the country, these are the two best options as political solutions for addressing the activities of Biafra groups and their arrowheads.

“The releases of Nnamdi Kanu and Igboho from incarceration without addressing the causes of the agitations will worsen the situation at hand, it will escalate their activities of the agitations, the only options for F.G now are to create an additional state for the southeast and regional autonomy for the southeastern region through the National Assembly.”

Muslims under the umbrella of Muslim Ummah of South-West Nigeria (MUSWEN) have advised Nigerians to supply credible information to security agencies in order to stem the tide of kidnapping, armed robbery and other criminal activities in the country.

A member of the Board of Trustees (BOT) of MUSWEN, Alhaji Kunle Sanni, issued the advice while speaking with journalists during the 6th General Assembly of the organisation.

The event themed “Insecurity in Nigeria: Effects on Human Psyche” held at the University of Ibadan on Sunday had MUSWEN President, Alhaji Rasaki Oladejo; MUSWEN Executive Secretary, Professor Muslih Yahya; and prominent Islamic scholars and associations across the region in attendance.

Sanni, while speaking on the security situation across the country, noted that Nigerians should not wait for security agents before they secure themselves.

He explained that it is not possible for security agents to be everywhere, hence Nigerians should volunteer information that could help them arrest the criminals.

Sanni, who added that criminals live among the people, said that the best way for people to protect themselves is to report suspicious movements to the security agencies.

He said, “Chief of Army Staff, Inspector General of Police and all the service chiefs cannot be everywhere and these criminals live among us, so we are concerned about the security situation in the country, we should give intelligence report to the security agencies.

“I am not suggesting that Nigerian should carry guns to defend themselves, if we are saying that we should carry guns to defend ourselves, we are escalating the tentacles of violence.

“So, I will not subscribe to the call that everyone should carry guns.

“Every Nigerian should see himself as part of those who want to see the end of the ugly insurrection.

“Therefore, they should be involved to volunteer necessary information to the security agencies to assist in combating insecurity”.

A former Commissioner of Police, Dr. Olayinka Balogun, in his lecture entitled “Prevalence of Insecurity in Nigeria and its effect on human conduct” attributed weak government, politics of hatred, corruption, unemployment and breakdown of traditional institutions as major factors causing insecurity in the country.

He then recommended that government and stakeholders should ensure the provision of jobs for the unemployed, promote equity, justice and protect the rights of minorities in order to address growing incidents of kidnappings, armed robberies and other criminal activities in the country.

“Insecurity can be brought to a minimal level if the following essential political, economic and social policies and programs are introduced and sustained in a society.

“Development and consolidation of democratic culture, strong and capable public institutions, a strong and just economic space including guaranteed job and food security,” he said.
