The south-eastern youth stated that the gesture is an “affirmative action that President Muhammadu Buhari’s love for Igbos is unparalleled.”
The group also called on some Igbo elders who took President Buhari to court over allegations of ‘nepotism, religious bigotry’ among other constitutional violations, to withdraw their suit.
This is contained in a statement issued on Sunday by Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, OYC President General, and Mazi Okwu Nnabuike, Secretary-General.
“OYC wishes to categorically state that we have the mandate of Igbo elders to persuade those who unjustly used Ohanaeze Ndigbo’s name as signatories to the ongoing suit against President Muhammadu Buhari without proper consultative approval from the various stakeholders to withdraw.
“Igbo Youths salute the Southeast Governors Forum for the harmonious relationship between them and President Muhammadu Buhari irrespective of the rogue operations of few Igbo groups to label them saboteurs.
“OYC is full of hope that International flights will resume operations at Enugu international Airport at the resumption of International flights on September 5th 2020.”
KanyiDaily had earlier reported that Akanu Ibiam International Airport in Enugu State, was officially reopened on Sunday, and first aircraft has landed on the new runway.
