The Leadership of Concerned Igbo Leaders Forum, have condemned in it’s entirety, the security situations of the Nation and called on World Powers @United Nations, @Israel, @Russia, @China, @Joe Biden @United States of America Department of States, @United Kingdom, @UAE, @Vatican, @World Catholic Commission, @Jorge Mario Bergoglio @Roman Catholic Pope Francis, @World Anglican Communion @France, @ECOWAS, to step in now and save the lives of innocent citizens of Nigeria who are being slaughtered daily in their thousands on the alter of politics, religious sentiments and maladministration of egocentric blood tasty Leaders.
Speaking to news men in his office from Umuahia Abia State, Hon Obinna Ndukwe Ibiam said that Nigeria is in a cold war with itself, because of unnecessary hatred and rancho between Islamic Northern Fulani and the Southern Christian Nigeria, Ibiam asked how on earth should Jihadist Islamic cattle herders of Northern Fulani, move comfortably from the North to Christian Catholic dominated South East, South South and South West States to maim, shed blood, kidnap innocent men, women and students, demand ransom, receive the ransom through Nigeria bank accounts with telephones and go scot-free without prosecution?
Meanwhile in the same nation, every Christian Southern Nigerian can be investigated and prosecuted for their mere dressing, hairstyles, driving of exotic cars, freedom of speech, owning of laptops and good phones, living a luxurious life out of hardwork and self struggle.
The fearless Youths Leader, regretted that Nigeria would’ve been playing in the same league with Israel, South Korea, China, Japan, Malaysia, and Dubai, but here we’re languishing in abject poverty, depts, hunger, diseases and death of innocent citizens under the watch of APC government that promised Nigerians change to a better life in 2015.
The Youths Empowerment guru affirmed that, If our Leaders sit together and dialogue sincerely and selflessly, Nigeria can feed herself and supply 24 hours uninterrupted free electric power, and produce exportable goods and services to entire Africa and the world, with massive infrastructural developments, technology, good roads, modern rail lines without borrowing, citing Rwanda as a case study for Nigeria leaders to emulate and save the nation from economic decay.
The Youngest Special Adviser to the Governor said that, Nigeria have the Natural and Human resources to invent everything we import from China because of the ingenuity and talents of our young ones.
We have no reason to import food as we’re blessed with all kind of mineral and chemical resources to develop the country but all of these are story for the god’s because of selfish Leaders, who are busy celebrating mediocrity and unmerited political powers, who’s only interest are self centered, laughing in frivolities and enjoying on the blood of the masses who are busy working tirelessly to feed their families, protect themselves and pay taxes out of self struggle.
He said that, it is uncalled-for to experience the baberic situation where the security agencies are not adequately prepared, funded, equip and energised to nip Insecurity to the bud while our Leaders are dumfounded, watching helplessly as the skulls and blood of their electorate role and flows for no just cause.
Ibiam opined that, restructuring to true Federalism of 1963 with a new constitution should be embraced, if we need peace in Nigeria.
The ebullient legal luminary called on other Igbo Leaders to speak up for the release of Nnamdi Kanu, Mr Obinna Iyiegbu and Justice Mary Odili and other persecuted Christians now or forever remain silent as the Southern Christian Youths will soon take up a new decisive means to defend themselves since it seems that, the security architecture of the Nation have turned to a tool to harass, intimidate, subjugate and witch-hunt Christian Catholic, Anglican dominated South East South South citizens, while shielding and protecting Islamic Northern bandits as repentant into different security forces, fraudulent Islamic Northern politicians, Abba Kyari, Mr Tinubu and many more.
He said that, there is need for a National reawakening, a rebirth and dialog where the Islamic Northern Hausa Fulanis and the Christian Southern Nigerians should come together, sit together and chart a new way forward to run this nation devoid of security threats as no Nation survive in enmity between itself.
In a separate remark the Young pragmatic politician thanked Governor Okezie Victor Ikpeazu PhD for his Youths inclusive government and proactive measures in securing lives and properties of Ndi Abia.
He appreciates the efforts of Southern Governors on their stand against open grazing that is destroying Agric sector of the region and called on Southerners home and in diaspora to come home, attract investors, support the Governors and empower our unemployed Youths to key into modern mechanized farming and livestock, to bridge the gap on food security and importation.
He revealed that any nation that sits together and dialogue can never get it wrong, when it comes to peace and development.
