Ohanaeze Youth Council (OYC) has dropped a Letter to back-up their early demand...

Ohanaeze drops Igbo 2019 presidency demand, petitions UN for Biafra referendum

It appears the Ohanaeze Youth Council (OYC) has dropped its earlier demand for an Igbo president in 2019 and have resolved to pursue the realisation of a Biafra state from Nigeria.

OYC, the youth wing of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, on Tuesday revealed that it had petitioned the United Nations to begin processes towards referendum in the South-East to decide what the region wants.
The group also said that in the petition it demanded that the UN ensure ‘special protection’ for all Igbo living in the North.
The letter was signed by the group’s national president, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike (National secretary) Amb Arthur Obiora (Dep National President) Engr Obinna Adobe (National Publicity Secretary) and was copied to the Acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, the United States Embassy in Nigeria, the UK Embassy, the Commonwealth, and the Amnesty International, among others.
The letter was entitled, “A call for emergency in Nigeria- our two point demand.”
The group was reacting to the letter to Acting President Yemi Osinbajo by a coalition of northern youth groups, who prayed him to allow the Igbo to secede from Nigeria.
The Arewa youths had also in their letter, called on Osinbajo to make possible a UN organised referendum in Igboland for the people to decide if they want to remain in Nigeria or their age long desired Biafra.
