The Ohaneze Youth Council Worldwide, OYC, has said the apology tendered by the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is a welcome development.
During an interview with veteran journalist Dele Momodu on Thursday evening, Kanu is said to have tendered an apology.
In a statement signed by the Secretary-General, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike, OYC said it “commended Kanu for heeding to the advice of its (OYC) leadership to immediately tender his unreserved apologies to Ndigbo,” calling on the IPOB leader to retract his End SARS inflammatory threats, verbal attacks, and stop all necessary violent protest within the Southeast and Igboland in general.
OYC said, “it’s unimaginable and taboo for anyone to speak for Igbo without proper consultative approvals from Igbo stakeholders. Ipob were gradually losing relevance after their failed protests and needs to change tactical direction.”
The highest Igbo youth body believes that “Yoruba politicians and Northeast presidential aspirant through their Selfishness are manipulating IPOB activities indirectly for 2023.”
According to the group, this is to “Scuttle Igbo presidency project” warning that “It should stop henceforth, Nnamdi Kanu should learn from history, especially Awolowo’s betrayal against Igbo legend, Dimm Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu in 1967.”
OYC said it “wishes to inform Nnamdi Kanu, that his sins have been forgiven by Igbo Youth leadership led by Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, he should,” adding that he should “go and sin no more.”
