The Ohanaeze Youth Council (OYC) have commended the coalition of Northern youth groups for obeying the agreement reached with them following the October 1 quit notice issued against Igbos in the North.
In a statement signed on Friday by its National vice president, Obinna Achuonye, the group reaffirmed their belief on the unity of Nigeria as the only option to protect the interest of Ndigbo.
OYC said: ”Since October 1st 2017, we have not received any sad news on any loss of lives or properties in any part of the North.
”We appreciate the efforts of ethnic nationalities youth groups, especially the coalition of Northern groups led by the President of Arewa consultative Youths, Yerima Shettima, for keeping the part of the negotiation pact reached on September 14th 2017, Called ABUJA PEACE ACCORD, between Ohanaeze Youths Worldwide and Coalition of Northern Groups ‘that no igbo man will lose his life or business or properties in any part of 19 Northern States of Nigeria’.
”THE ABUJA PEACE ACCORD, will be followed by ABA PEACE DECLARATION, where all the ethnic Nationalities Youth groups will gather to fully support the Nigeria Project.
”Ohanaeze Youths call for calm, especially in the forthcoming Anambra Governorship election on November 18, 2017.”
