The youth wing of Igbo socio-political organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo has given reasons why Nnamdi Kanu, the leader Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) are agitating.
Reports have it that the group said youths in south east are not well being catered for by the political parties.
Voice of Ndigbo gathered that Chizzy Umeobi, the coordinator of the eastern forum made this known.
Umeobi urged the political parties involved in the Anambra governorship election to ensure that a youth emerges as the next governor of the state.
It was learnt that Umeobi said the youths in the region have criticised IPOB for saying the upcoming governorship election in the state would not hold.
He said: ”It is this neglect of the youths by political parties in the South East that is causing the agitations by IPOB, MASSOB and other pro-Biafra groups.
”What we are saying is that youths should be given a chance to contest the November 18 governorship election and we have such youths in all the political parties.
”We assure any party that fails to give its ticket to a youth that it will fail the governorship election. We don’t belong to any political party, but we need a youth in the system”.
Meanwhile, it’s reported that MASSOB on Sunday August 13, warned the federal government that re-arresting Kanu could lead to a crisis unprecedented in the history of the country.
