Igbos Want A Restructured Nigeria, IPOB Call To Boycott Election Wrong – Iwuanyanwu

Igbos Want A Restructured Nigeria, IPOB Call To Boycott Election Wrong – Iwuanyanwu

Igbo businessman and member, People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Board of Trustees (BoT), Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu, has called on the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), to drop their planned boycott of the 2019 general election.

Iwuanyanwu who spoke to Sun New said that what the Igbos want is restructured Nigeria, not secession.

According to him, the call by IPOB for boycott of election in the Southeast is wrong and strange.

“You see, these people have not come to have discussion with the elders, if they meet with the elders, we would probably give them advice.

“In any situation, some people must learn from the experience of the old; I can tell you as I am here now, the IPOB has never come to me for any advice and, of course; you know that I am the “Aha Eji Agamba of Igbo land”.

“If they come, we would advise them, no doubt that they are having grievances, their leader like a young man, he may say that the Igbo are marginalised, but the way to solve it is not by telling Ndigbo not to go for an election.

“I don’t think it is advisable; when I see them I will talk to them because people like those of us who suffered during the war, nobody wants to go through that again. So, when we see them, we have to advise them.“

“I will agree that we should restructure Nigeria in the way Atiku has promised the world, I think if Nigeria is restructured it would be better, that is just the point, the younger people are making…; I believe that’s what they want.

“I will appeal to them that the solution to their problem is not in the boycott of the election; that does not mean that they do not have grievances.

“In the life of people, they are bound to have problem, but a wise man looks for a wise solution to that problem, and I want them to know that we had leaders like Nnamdi Azikiwe, even leaders like Ojukwu, he never wanted secession, all he wanted was restructuring and when Nigerians refused restructuring; they didn’t have any other choice than to declare Biafra.

“The Igbo are in Nigeria today, occupying everywhere, the right thing to say now is to restructure Nigeria.
