Igbo Socio-cultural Organisation, Ohaneze-Ndigbo, has begged members of the Boko Haram sect to put an end to the wanton destruction.
Speaking in Abuja during a courtesy visit to former Federal Commissioner for Information and South South leader, Chief Edwin Clark in his Asokoro residence, President of the Lagos Chapter of the group, Chief Fabian Onwualu said for the sake of peace “our brothers in the North East should lay down their arms.”
The group also reacted to President Goodluck Jonathan’s 2015 ambition, saying the Igbo community in Lagos has pledged its support for Jonathan, whose numerous developmental projects have changed the country for better.
“We have been very keen. And observing the trends of what has been happening within Jonathan’s administration and we have come to a conclusion that the president has performed,” said Onwualu.
“No superior and no inferior region in Nigeria. There is no nation that is superior or inferior to another, and that is why we are Nigerians. We all have equal rights irrespective of the region we belong to. Discrimination of any sort is intolerable and will not be accepted,” he said.
