Ohaneze Advises Ndigbo to Refrain from Participating in Protests Against Hunger and Hardship in the Country

Ohaneze Ndigbo has cautioned Igbos against participating in protests against the current hardship in Nigeria. The warning was issued in a statement signed by the President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu, and titled “Message to all Igbos worldwide.”

The statement highlighted the challenges faced by Igbos, noting that they have been “victimised” following the APC's failure to win in Lagos and Abuja. It also suggested a conspiracy to ‘cripple Igbo business enterprise in Lagos, Abuja and other parts of Nigeria.’

“I write as your leader at this critical period in our Country, Nigeria. Events in Nigeria today are no doubt very disturbing. The economy has turned very bad, a sceptre of frustration is everywhere.

“I have received many entreaties from many parts of the Country requesting me to call Igbos to join in demonstration and violent action in the Country against the Government.

“As your leader, I am directing that no Igbo group or community in Nigeria or in Diaspora should join in this action. I am still studying the situation. I have asked Nigerians who approached me the following questions, what did they do when the past government disfranchised Igbo land?"
