On this solemn occasion of May 30th, 2024, BIAFRA NATIONAL HEROES DAY, OHANAEZE NDIGBO extends a sincere and open apology to Ndigbo and Biafra agitators. We convey our heartfelt plea for peace and unity, hoping to mend the wounds of the past and pave the way for a harmonious future.

Over the past decade, Ndigbo have endured an unprecedented wave of violence, civil disobedience, and loss of public trust in the Southeast Governors. The resulting wave of non-state actors and Biafra agitators holding sway has inflicted significant harm on the region, leading to a collapsing economy, disruption of academic activities, and the painful closure of government institutions due to endless Sit-At-Home exercises. This unfortunate reality calls for urgent reflection and a collective effort to restore peace and prosperity to our beloved Southeast.

On this historic day, as we commemorate Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu’s rallying call at the Ahiaria Declaration, urging Igbos to protect themselves against external threats, we remember the valor and spirit of our forebearers. Today, we find ourselves at a critical juncture where the cosmetic approaches of the Southeast Governors have fallen short in combating the escalating insecurity in the region.

OHANAEZE NDIGBO, in a tone of condemnation, points to the unpreparedness, lack of historical perspective, and genuine patriotism exhibited by the Southeast Governors in addressing the security challenges plaguing our people. We acknowledge our role in the leadership failure within the Southeast and accept the responsibility for deviating from the foundational principles and objectives set forth in 1976 by our visionary leaders.

It is with deep humility and genuine remorse that OHANAEZE NDIGBO tenders an earnest and unreserved apology to Ndigbo, particularly to the Biafra agitators, seeking forgiveness for our past errors and our inability to secure the release of Nnamdi Kanu. This demonstration of sincerity marks a pivot towards collaborative efforts to eliminate insecurity and restore peace in our region.

We call upon Biafra Agitators, including IPOB, MASSOB, BRIGE, and others, to embrace non-violent means of advocacy, as it will create a conducive environment for the eventual release of Nnamdi Kanu. Dialogue and peaceful resolutions stand as the most effective approach to restoring tranquility in the Southeast.

It is imperative for Southeast politicians, Igbo elder statesmen, distinguished elders of international repute, and eminent Igbo opinion leaders to unite in engaging with President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for a political solution towards Nnamdi Kanu’s release. The Federal Government requires strong assurances from these respected individuals to encourage the Presidency to consider a diplomatic resolution.

In conclusion, OHANAEZE NDIGBO remains committed to fostering unity, reconciliation, and progress for Ndigbo. We extend our hand in friendship and seek the forgiveness and understanding of all Ndigbo and Biafra agitators as we embark on this journey towards lasting peace. Let peace and prosperity reign once more in our cherished Southeast.
