Insecurity: Igbo are the Most Vulnerable in Nigeria, Says Obiozor,

By Marlikberry,

The apex Igbo social-political organisation, Ohaneze Ndigbo, has lamented that insecurity of Igbo people in Nigeria has reached dangerous level of existential threat, saying Igbo are the most vulnerable and victims of violence throughout Nigeria.

Its President, Prof. George Obiozor, stated this Wednesday while addressing a press conference in Enugu, but assured that the security and safety of Igbo people would be the priority of the new exco of the organisation.

He said it was obvious that at this critical time, the leadership of Ndigbo ought to transcend partisan politics, make-believe, rhetorics, propaganda and shadow-boxing.

Obiozor added that it was imperative that the primacy of Igbo interest, as opposed to self-seeking agenda and mere political ambition should be the bedrock on which Igbo desirable and ideal leadership must be anchored.

The Ohaneze President stressed that generally, not only had governance become both difficult and complex in Nigeria, but downright an existential threat to Ndigbo in particular.

Obiozor stated: The most urgent and imperative need of Ndigbo today is security. The security of Ndigbo in Nigeria and beyond has become a compelling primary responsibility and of serious concern for Ndigbo. At home in Nigeria the story of insecurity of Ndigbo has reached incrementally dangerous level of existential threat. Ndigbo are indeed in terms of security, the most vulnerable and victims of violence throughout Nigeria. Odogwu you are welcome to the sit and I pray God use you to recover more Igbos have lost in history.
