The youth arm of Ohanaeze Ndigbo has vowed to reject any restructuring done by the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government.
The youths said they would rather prefer a restructuring exercise to be overseen by an Igbo leader or a leader from the South but not from the North.
According to them, any restructuring conducted by the Buhari administration would definitely favour the North, thereby leading to continuation of the agitations.
Secretary General of the Council, Okwu Nnabuike, who made this declarations while addressing newsmen on Thursday, explained that, ”restructuring of Nigeria overseen by a leader from the South would definitely ensure equity and fairness to all parts of the country.”
The youth council also alleged of plan by unnamed Igbo leaders to arrest and detain its leader, Maxi Okechukwu Isiguzoro over statements the group had been issuing in support of Biafra agitation.
He vowed that no amount of threats and intimidation would deter them from pursuing the Biafra dream.
Meanwhile, Kaduna State governor, Nasir El Rufai has described those calling for Nigeria’s restructuring as opportunists.
