The Ohanaeze Youth Council, OYC, on Thursday said that in few days, its parent body, Ohanaeze Ndigbo will make its position known on the three month eviction notice issued to Igbos in the North.
Chairman of OYC, Chinedu Arthur-Ugwa, who made the disclosure also urged Igbos resident in the North to remain calm as there was no cause for alarm.
Speaking in Yenogoa, Bayelsa State capital, Arthur-Ugwa urged Igbos in the North to disregard the quit notice which he said has no basis, advising them to remain law abiding and peaceful.
He said, “The leadership of Ohaneze Ndigbo under the leadership of Chief Nnia Nwodo is on top of the situation and there is no cause for alarm following assurances from northern leaders, our people have no need to fear.
“In the coming days, the leadership of Ohaneze will take a position but we in the youth wing of Ohaneze urge our people to refrain from panic because there is simply no need for it.
“The Ohaneze Ndigbo has been working tirelessly to strengthen the bond of unity amongst Ndigbo and their hosts across the country and that has yielded peace and harmony across ethnic divides.
“Further assurances have also been given by the Minister of Interior, retired Lt.-Gen. Abdulrahman Bello Dambazau that there is no need cause for alarm.”
