The umbrella organization for all Igbo, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, yesterday said that Ndigbo will not leave Nigeria for anybody as they are part owners of Nigeria whose forebears got independence for Nigeria.
This came as a chieftain of the organisation, Prince Richard Ozobu, has accused the President General, Chief Nnia Nwodo, of contravening the constitution of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo.
However, speaking through its National Deputy Publicity Secretary, Mazi Chuks Ibegbu, Ohanaeze said there is no reason why the Igbo would leave Nigeria.
“How and why should we leave Nigeria and for who? For settlers or foreigners? No way. We partly own Nigeria and instead of leaving it,settlers and foreigners will leave it for us,” Ibegbu noted.
Ohanaeze also urged the pro-Biafra agitators to fight for social, economic and structural justice for Ndigbo and not for Igbo to leave Nigeria for anybody, adding that the Igbo want a level playing ground for all Nigerians.
