Quit notice: What we’ll do to save our people – Igbos in diaspora.
Apex Igbo group in the Diaspora, Igbo World Assembly, IWA, has revealed its plans to save the Igbo nation from another pogrom following the quit notice by the coalition of Arewa youths to Igbos residing in the northern part of the country.
The continued agitation of Igbo youths across the country is a by-product of persistent injustice and marginalization arising from bad leadership and unjust structure of the country’s polity.
Without mincing words, the group said that a Nigeria where equity was served was the only way to save the situation.
IWA believes that the posture of the Northern youths is targeted towards suppressing all forms of opposition to the failed system.
As a way of maintaining sanity in the system, IWA in its recommendation warned that Nigerians across the nation should exercise restraint at this point in time so as not to overheat the polity.
IWA further advised the Federal government and the International Community to setup mechanism “to conduct referendum in each State and the various geopolitical zone of Nigeria for the people to decide how to be or not to be in Nigeria.”
IWA recommended that the government should “arrest the signatories to this threat and their supporters and put them on trial with immediate effect.”
It noted that some people may have been traumatized by this threat, calling on the government and the International community to setup plans and provide resources to deal with Igbo internally displaced people from the Northern Nigeria.
On its plans to save Igbo property in the North, IWA urged the government to work with Ohanaeze and Igbo groups in the North to help document Igbo properties.
It said, “IWA will register such ownership to the appropriate International Community agency for recollection/repatriation from Nigerian government at any time.
“There will be no more abandoned properties in Nigeria as we are in a new century.”
