  • 30-day Ultimatum: Let no one wake the sleeping lions in Southeast - Ohanaeze Youth Warns Miyetti Allah





  • The National President of Ohanaeze Youth Council, OYC, Comrade Igboayaka O. Igboayaka, strongly condemn in its entirety, the irrational position taken by the Northern Coalition Groups which was widely reported on Thursday through their spokesperson, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, who issued a 30-day ultimatum asking the Federal Government to reverse its decision in the suspension of the controversial Ruga farm settlement policy for herdsmen in the country.

    OYC views the threat by the Northern groups to commence the eviction of Southerners in the north at the expiration of the ultimatum as not only a symbol of treason but a declaration of war against the indigenous people of the Southern region and its constituted authorities who unanimously rejected the Ruga settlement programme having weighed the demerits and consequences of such policy on our people if allowed to succeed.

    OYC noted that this will not be the first time such threat of eviction has been issued by warring northern groups against our people. This has proven beyond reasonable doubts that these northern youths are intolerant and lack basic respect for the fundamentals of democracy. We wish to remind that all these are happening because the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government has continued to aid political instability in the country through his tacit support and preferential treatment to Fulani herdsmen against other sections of the country.

    If the above is not the case, then we ask the Federal Government to order the security agencies to immediately effect the arrest of Abdul-Azeez Suleiman and his group for threatening the peace and safety of Nigerians living in the north. It should be noted that no individual or group has the monopoly to issue and carry out similar threats but by violating the constitution and the collective aspiration of the people, the present administration must, therefore, decisively deal with these Northern elements whose stock-in-trade has been to fan the embers of war, segregation and division in the country. 

    On the light of the recent development, we once again charge Ndigbo to get ready to defend themselves against any threat or act capable of undermining the security of lives of our people or any attempt to invade Igboland through whatever guise. OYC believe that the northern coalition group merely represent the “violent Fulani minority in the North.” With the little population of Fulani in Nigeria they lack the strength and capacity to issue threats to the southerners, especially the Igbos that constitute 48.9% of total population of Nigeria. However, there are indications the FG has aided Fulani herdsmen to open the borders connecting the Chad, Mali, and Niger Republic countries to bring in Fulanis to launch attack on the Igbo through their demands to implement the RUGA settlement policy.

    OYC, therefore, reiterate the rejection of the RUGA settlement and other similar schemes such as the newly proposed National Livestock Transformation Plan in all the states of Igbo extraction with includes; Abia, Imo, Ebonyi, Rivers, Cross Rivers, Akwa Ibom, Kogi, Benue, Beyelsa, Anambra, Edo, Delta, and Enugu states. OYC stands on the empowerment and granting of loans to indigenous farmers in Igboland by governors in the region to establish the cattle ranching farming to meet the agricultural demands of our people.

    Finally, we wish to advice the Northern Youths to go back to school and study the political history of Nigeria and the events therein, line by line.

    We affirm that Nigeria is not owned by any tribe and if there is any tribe that can claim ownership of the country, then it is the birthright of Igbos to own Nigeria having being at the forefront its independence and development, but we believe that Nigeria belong to all. Again, there is no race in any part of the country that has made sacrifices more that the Igbos has done in Nigeria. We want to remind the northern youths that Igbos are the most peaceful race on earth, but they should not interprete our peaceful disposition for weakness or cowardice.

    We have rejected the Ruga settlement programme and the National Livestock Transformation Plan, and we will continue to reject any programme or policy from the Federal government with similar ill-motive that Ruga and National Livestock Transformation Plan presents.

    We want to tell the Federal Government that governors of the Igbo extraction had commenced indigenous cattle rearing. We will continue to be peaceful, but let no one wake the sleeping lions in Eastern Nigeria.
