Biafra Nations Youth League, BNYL, has condemned the statement credited to the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, Boss Mustapha that his re-election will pave way for Igbo Presidency.
National Leader of BNYL, Princewill Richard said Igbo presidency “cannot quench the agitations for Biafra.”
In a statement sent to DAILY POST, Richard said, “It’s an insult to exchange Biafra with Igbo Presidency, if the Igbo wants Presidency they should take it, not when it is being given to them, because whoever gives you something would take it at any point in time.
“Take for example, Goodluck Jonathan was given Presidency and the same people collected it.”
Richard also accused the President of trying to hoodwink the people of South East region “who are not in anywhere found in his government”.
The group said the alleged marginalization of ethnic groups of the former Eastern region cannot be addressed by Igbo Presidency.
BNYL further disclosed that the group has taken over grassroots structures in some towns in Cross River, Akwa Ibom and Rivers State where it enjoys more support at the grassroots.
“Our members have taken over some community youth leadership, and Okada Union in towns like Ikom, Obudu, Bakassi, Esit-Eket, Onna,Oyigbo and Andoni.
“We participate in every community elections because without these grassroots structures we have leakages in the struggle,” he said.
