A member of APGA Board of Trustees (BoT) Rommy Ezeonwuka has called on members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) not to scuttle the November 18 elections in Anambra.
Ezeonwuka told newsmen in Oba, Idemili, on Wednesday that the ”No Election in Anambra” threat by the agitators was both illogical and out of tune with modern reality.
He said it would amount to cutting off one’s nose to spite his face as not holding election in Anambra would further worsen the plight of not just the agitators but innocent people in Anambra.
What are they even clamouring for? If it is Biafra, they already have it because their councillors, local government chairmen, even governors are their own people.
What they should be doing now is to see how they can add value to the security, economic and political wellbeing of the region rather than disturbing the businesses and peace of their brothers and sisters.
Ezeonwuka, who is the founder of ”Ogirisi Foundation”, a socio-cultural group, however, blamed the army of youths available for IPOB agitations and rallies on joblessness.
He said that successive governments had been unfair to the youth through their inability to provide business and economically viable environment for them to be gainfully busy.
