The Igbo socio-cultural organization of the apex, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has stated that Nigeria was already on fire and awaiting disintegration.
Ohanaeze was cited by the Sun for having said this on Saturday through his national advertising secretary, Uche Opaga-Achi,
The organization reacted to an earlier statement from the Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) that urged those opposed to the establishment of settlements of Fulani pastoralists, popularly called Ruga, throughout the country, to abandon their opposition and allow politics to take off.
Ohanaeze said that the positions of both ACF and the coalition of young people in the North show the level of impunity that they demonstrate or operate.
He added: “Nigeria is already on fire, and what was left is the disintegration, which is driving the action of these people. They are moving because of the war; The country is on fire, there is anguish everywhere.
“It is turning to criminality and the absurdity that people stay in the comfort of their homes and dictate what happens in another area.

“What is the concept of the rule of law and human rights? What is the concept of self-determination? What is the concept of government that protects the lives and property of the people under its surveillance?
“They have the backing of the federal government, and that is the most reason why they can get up in the morning and start saying things that are capable of disintegrating the country, nobody cares, leave it and lie down freely in their beds ” , while the declaration they have made is to enforce, to warm the embers of disunity in the country.
“Our argument is this: the land in the north is much larger than the land in the east or the south. Why is it that in the east and the south they are emphasizing the application of Ruga?
“We argue that you have the Sambisa forest that can contain all the cows in Africa and the insurgents are coming through that axis. Let them go and develop the forest and bring all the cows in Africa and put there. They will be free from all forms of destruction, distraction, or problems here and there; There will be no farmers there to face.
“In the alternative, the Sahara desert is being wasted; you have oil in the south, and you channel it to the north and use it the way you want. Then, in the same way, it can also channel water into the Sahara Desert, as Governor Nyesom Wike suggested that they can direct water into the desert, and Governor Dave Umahi also said that they could buy southern herbs. Then, you can use the money you have and channel the water into developing the Sahara desert, sea it and sprinkle it.
“The cows will have a field day; The pastors will not have anyone to crash with. Why do you want to drown people with the little land they have here? You see brothers and sisters fighting over the land because the land is too small; There are so many cases of property in court, that they tell you that the area is not even here and that you want to bring Fulani from all over Africa to come and flood here to continue with your Islamization and Fulanization agenda. Is there something hidden in this thing? It is an open secret.
“The coalition group’s support for pastors to be part of state security is so ridiculous and provocative and even insulting. How can southerners go north and be a watchman? What is the work of the police, what is the work of the local guard there, are you saying they are incompetent? They are doing their job. See how Boko Haram is killing our soldiers because the government provides money for weapons and ammunition, but the people in charge of the affairs supposedly pocket the money.
“People are asking that Ruga be implemented when the federal government has made a statement to suspend it. Is not that a counterattack action, which is an offense and, even more, a crime when statements or comments are made that can tear the country apart, and yet nobody goes after them? The shepherds are killing and raping people, and no one is arresting them.
“They have a field day. It is the IPOB whose members were not armed, it was declared a terrorist group, but the terrorists who are busy killing people, damaging farms, are walking freely without challenge. So, why do not young people in the North make an inflammatory statement when they know that nobody will question them and have the support of their elders? “

He said: “It is worrisome and sad that most public schools in some communities in Akwa Ibom state are in ruins, insecure and left to the destiny of the communities without government attention.
“All that is needed is for the Governor to take bold steps by declaring a state of emergency in the education sector to build more classroom blocks in rural and urban schools, provide good infrastructure such as science equipment, libraries, laboratories, as well as review the education curriculum to ensure a better and safe future for children in the state of Akwa Ibom. ”

Isong added that; “In the Fundamental Principles and Directives of State Policy, as set out in Chapter 2, Section 13 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria of 1999 (as amended), the government has the responsibility to ensure that the education of Nigerian children be free and qualitative. ”
He also urged the government to address the numerous complaints of delays in the payment of pensions and unpaid tips to relatives of late elementary school teachers with delays in 1991 and to provide an improved social assistance package for teachers in public schools throughout the state.
We will attack DSTV, MTN, Shoprite, Stanbic IBTC, others if they don’t leave Nigeria – Yoruba youths
After the xenophobic attacks against Nigerians and Nigerian companies in South Africa, the Oodua Youth Coalition, OYC, has granted South African companies and businesses seven ultimata to leave Nigeria.
Latest Nigeria newspaper report that the group president, Oluyi Akintade Tayo, the refusal of the interested parties to give in to the notice of resignation will mean death.
While expressing disappointment at the attitude of South Africans against Nigerians living and working in South Africa, particularly what they described as the continued silence of the South African government on development, the group emphasized that during the apartheid era, which was the time Difficult of In the rainbow country, Nigeria was firm with them.
The statement says: “Oodua Youth Coalition (OYC), the most crucial youth group in Nigeria that projects and protects the Yoruba nation in the country, is sad and angry because South Africans, with the support of the country’s authorities, are coordinating the looting and burning of Nigerian businesses and mutilations and murders of our brothers and fathers on earth.
“It is unfortunate that South Africa, which under the apartheid regime had the support and solidarity of the Nigerians and the government while the white supremacists reigned supreme, is now turning to inflict physical and psychological pain and injury to the people whose parents committed great harm.” part of wages and profits and the community to end the apartheid reign.
“The circulating video in which Mr. Bongani Mkongi, the Vice Minister of Police of South Africa, defended the attacks against Nigerians and other Africans confirmed our previous fear and doubts about the guilt of the South African authorities. It is disconcerting that the country whose former leader, the late Nelson Mandela, recognized Nigeria’s efforts to elevate the South African-led government, is expelling other Africans, mostly Nigerians, energetically and with shame.
“We have tolerated the excesses of these South Africans whose businesses have prospered in Nigeria without any physical and psychological attack. For months, the coalition has written several letters to the South African consulate in Nigeria requesting meetings to chart a way forward and find a lasting solution for these unfortunate and barbaric incidents that have still been ignored or have run into a brick wall.
“OYC, after an emergency meeting, has concluded plans to, as a matter of urgency, attack all South African companies and facilities in Nigeria, especially in the southwest region of the country. DSTV, MTN, SHOPRITE, STANBIC IBTC, and other outlets are our goals.
“Therefore, we give these South African companies a maximum of seven days to leave Nigeria or forget them, since our coalition, with other groups and comrades throughout the country, will attack them and burn them to ashes,” reads the notice.
