Ohaneze Ndigbo Youth Council (OYC) has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to appoint the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) from the South-East region of the country.
The group, in a statement in Abakaliki on Thursday, said that will give the zone a sense of belonging in the President’s second tenure.
The statement signed by the President-General of OYC also congratulated the new National Assembly leadership elected on Tuesday.
The statement said:
The leadership of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide had watched keenly the manipulated drama and scheme out of South East zone from the leadership of National Assembly, Judiciary and other Security apparatus of the country, but, rather than lamenting endlessly, we congratulate those who emerged as National Assembly leaders.
It is the will of the Almighty God, and we the younger generation of Ndigbo accept these realities as an act of fate, and we urge Igbo leaders to shield their battle swords and quietly go into “ime Obi” and restrategize ahead of time for the battle Royal ahead in 2023.
We should borrow a leaf from South-West who were in similar situations between 2007 till 2015 before they bounced back in the present moment with President Buhari.
