The apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo has revealed that people from the South East are very ready to exit Nigeria.

This comes after a coalition of Northern groups filed a suit asking a court to grant approval for people from the South East to exit the country.

At the last hearing, some Igbo lawyers also approached the court, seeking to be joined as respondents.

Speaking on the development, the Secretary-General of the Chidi Ibeh-led Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Okechukwu Isiguzoro urged the Federal Government to accede to the request by the Northern groups.

He said from every indication, the Igbo are no longer safe in the country, adding that the suit was a gimmick to frustrate the demand for a Nigerian President of Igbo extraction.

While blaming desperate politicians from the North for the suit, Isiguzoro applauded the Northern groups for indirectly divulging clandestine conspiracies from the North to push the South East out of Nigeria.

He said, “Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide has assessed the standpoints of the Northern groups that approached Abuja Federal High Court to request that the National Assembly should be coerced by the court before their conclusion on the ongoing constitution amendment to allow the South East to exit from Nigeria.

“The plaintiffs led by Nastura Shariff, Balarabe Rufai, Abdul-Aziz Sulaiman and Aminu Adam, explained that their action was informed by the need to curtail violence and destruction as a result of the agitation for secession championed by IPOB.

“The exponents of these demonic campaigns are being sponsored by Northern Governors and we are urging the Federal Government to assent to their requests since it appears that south-Easterners are no longer acceptable and protected by the Federal authorities in policies and practices.

“All these shenanigans are to stop an Igbo man from succeeding President Buhari in 2023. The Igbo are open to all options, either to remain as part of Nigeria or to be allowed to exit the country.

“It’s high time the Federal Government negotiated with the Igbo because Nigeria’s unity is negotiable”.
