Igbo won’t give up their ancestral land, Ohanaeze youths tell presidency

 

Ndigbo won’t give up their ancestral land for cattle colony, Ohanaze youths tell presidency
. Vows to resist any attempt to confiscate land for ranching in S’East

From Steve Oko, Umuahia

The youth wing of the apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has bluntly told the Presidency that Ndigbo would not surrender any part of their ancestral land for the infamous cattle colony.

Ohanaeze Youth Council ( OYC) stated this while reacting to a remark by the Presidency that Nigerians had better relinquish their ancestral land for cattle colony than allow the murderous herdsmen kill them and still confiscate and convert their land into grazing field.

Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media, Mrs. Femi Adesina, had during a programme on a national television advised Nigerians to willingly volunteer land for herdsmen to graze their livestock than get killed.

Describing the remarks as disturbing, provocative and tacit support for the killing spree by herdsmen OYC said no inch of land in South East would be relinquished for either cattle colony or ranching.

The Igbo youth body wondered why the Presidency should be championing the business interest of a particular tribe in a heterogeneous and multi- ethnic country like Nigeria.

OYC vowed to resist any attempt to seize Igbo land for grazing, saying the Fulani can no longer hold the country to ransom.

OYC in a statement issued yesterday by its National Deputy President , Dr Kingsley Dozie ; and Assistant National Publicity Secretary, Okey Nwachukwu, chided Adesina for the unguarded statement which it said ” is criminal and too weighty “.

The statement read in part: ” Igbo Youths are not afraid of any intimidation and we insist that no land in the South East will be given for any ranching, grazing or for any use to the Fulani’s who have proven that they are jihadist.

” For the records, Ndigbo have no sufficient land talk more of providing any for private cattle business.

“The federal government must be decisive in dealing with the herdsmen terrorist who are on a killing spree. We are not happy with the kid glove approach of the present administration in dealing with serious security issues in the country. ”

OYC cautioned the Presidential Spokesmen against inflammatory remarks, warning further that “no person should think Nigeria is his or her personal estate or conquered territory ”

“We advise that the presidential spokesman should not provoke Igbo Youths”.

OYC also called on Igbo Governors and political leaders, irrespective of their political affiliations, to remain resolute in the collective will of the people not to cede any inch of land in the zone for cattle colony.

The youth body warned that any Governor, traditional ruler or person (s) who sabotages the resolution would regret such unpatriotic action.
