Ohanaeze Ndigbo Makes Four Demands To Tinubu To Appease Igbos Ahead Of His Inauguration

The apex Igbo socio-cultural group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has made four demands to the president-elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, ahead of his inauguration on May 29, 2023.



The demands are contained in a statement released by the Ohanaeze Secretary-General, Okechukwu Isiguzoro, on Wednesday, April 5, 2023. He asked Tinubu to see to the demands in order to appease the Igbos.

The demands include

1. The unconditional release of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.

Isiguzoro said releasing Kanu would restore peace and security in the Southeast.

2. The apex Igbo socio-cultural group wants the next Senate President to come from the southeast region.



Ohanaeze Ndigbo said the ruling party should balance its Muslim-Muslim presidency by zoning the Senate Presidency to the southeast.

3. The creation of a sixth southeast state.

4. The President-elect must ensure that all the economic gateways across the country, including the reopening of the Calabar wharf and the dredging of the Azumiri River, are completed, granting IPOB members amnesty, according to the Igbo group.
