National publicity secretary of Urhobo Progress Union, UPU, Alhaji Mumakai-Unagha has appealed to protesting members of Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, to give President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration ample time to address various challenges currently facing the country.
Unagha said leadership failure was generally responsible for the gale of protests in the South-East, asking protesters to hold their leaders who had failed to represent the interest of the zone responsible for the underdevelopment of the region.
He stated this yesterday in Warri while addressing a cross session of Ohaneze Ndigbo Youths who paid him a courtesy visit in his office.
The UPU leader noted that Igbo leaders failed to insist during the 2014 National Conference organised by former President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration that all grey areas to the corporate existence of Nigeria were fully discussed.
According to him, “The 2014 confab was a good opportunity to discuss the corporate existence of the fragile components that made up the Nigeria state. Igbo leaders never insisted when the conference imposed ‘no go area’ on some issues.”
Unagha advised the protesters to hold their leaders accountable rather than blaming other regions for being responsible for their social, political and economic disadvantages, adding that South-East leaders had every opportunity to address the backwardness of the zone but because of their selfish interest, sacrificed the interest of the zone.
