Referendum: Ohanaeze Reveals When UN Delegation Will Visit Nigeria


The President Ohanaeze Youth Council (OYC), Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, has said the United Nations (UN) has received the petition the group filed over Arewa quit notice and the call to conduct a referendum in Nigeria.

OYC further revealed that UN would soon send a delegation to visit the Nigeria any moment from now to address issues concerning the quit notice given to the Igbo in the Northern states.

It will be recalled that Ohanaeze Youth filed a petition to United Nations seeking for a special protection of Ndi-Igbo, and the call to conduct a referendum to determine the future of Igbo people in Nigeria.

Contrary to that, Isiguzoro who spoke during a Phone-in-program aired by the Abia state-owned radio station (BCA) on Monday insisted that except a referendum was conducted in Nigeria, the country will continue to witness agitations in many quarters.

He, however, expressed the hope that the outcome of the visit would bring a permanent solution to the current impasse in the Country.

He observed the current agitation would have been averted, if not for the constant neglects meted out to some ethnic nationals in Nigeria, ranging from appointments, employments and sharing formula among others.

Isiguzoro also lamented that Ndigbo have always been victims of unrest in the north despite their enormous efforts to develop the region.

He called on the Acting President, Prof. Yemi Osibanjo, to call for Youth conference to address this ugly menace without further delay.
