Igbo Leaders to Approach President Buhari With a List of Demands


The Pan Igbo group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has resolved to visit President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa in Abuja with a charter of demands, Vanguard reports.

The resolution was adopted after a meeting of some members at the private residence of one of their leaders in Enugu on Thursday.

Among the issues they resolved to present to Buhari for urgent attention included the reconstruction of the Enugu- Umuahia- Port Harcourt Road, the Enugu- Onitsha express road, appointment of more Special and Senior Special Assistants or Assistants as Igbo are not represented in his government, as well as the completion of the Second Niger Bridge to end the ongoing agitation for Biafra Republic.

Apart from these, they also resolved to ask the President to set up the Eastern Nigeria Development Commission, ENDC, to handle the issue of unemployment of Igbo youths which they said was responsible for the continued agitation for the Biafran Republic by the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, as reportedly requested by Governor Rochas Okorocha during the reconciliation meeting between the two former factions of Ohanaeze led by Chief Enwo Igariwey and Ralph Obioha respectively.
