”We Will Not Like To Be Threatened With The Genocide of 30 Months of Biafra War Again” – Ohaneze To President Buhari Over His Civil War Tweet

The Ohanaeze Ndigbo leadership, led by Uche Okwukwu, has demanded an unreserved apology from Buhari to the Igbos for his tweet which made reference to the civil war.

Buhari had sent out a tweet that made reference to the civil war. He also threatened to treat young people misbehaving today in the language they understand.

In a statement signed and released on behalf of Okwukwu by Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, Secretary-General Ohanaeze Ndigbo, the group expressed shock that President Buhari could make such a ‘provocative statement’ while the people of the South East are still healing from the wounds of the civil war.

The statement in part reads

“Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide had studied the proclamation of President Muhammadu Buhari on social media responding to the insecurity challenges in southeastern Nigeria and we obliged President Buhari to quickly rescind the threats of repeating the episode of the civil war experience which killed 3 million Igbo people and wreaked havoc on Igbo properties, but rather Mr. President should tender an unreserved apology to Ndigbo, for the civil war contentions against southeast to help avert possible misinterpretation of Nigerians misconstruing him.

We are using this channel to remind President Buhari that killer herdsmen and Northern bandits based on the earlier warnings of USA Embassy Abuja that “they were heading south to destabilize the region,” the recent provocative onslaught against the southeast gave rise to Northern delinquents commandeered the moment to unleash affliction on security formations and government agencies like INEC.

We are solidly behind the southeast Governors in these tribulations and difficulties to restore peace and stability in the southeast, and President Buhari should regularly be scheduled to meet with Igbo Governors and leaders including youths and agitators, this exhibition of love are what Nigerians expect from Buhari, not civil war magniloquence.

Federal Government honored the Yoruba nation through MKO Abiola by the declaration of June 12 as Democracy Day to heal the psyche and wounds of the past, Southeast should be honored on June 12 Democracy Day through Presidential pardon and amnesty for all repentant Biafra agitators.

We will not like to be threatened with the genocide of 30 months of Biafra War again.”
