- Plan by the Nigerian Army to launch Operation Python Dance III during the election has by condemned by a group of youths from the southeast
- The group also disowned Igbo youths who visited President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja
- According to the youths, few of those who visited Buhari are Igbo but majority from investigation were recruited from IDP camps
Youths of the southeast region under the umbrella of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youths Council have kicked against the plan of the Nigerian Army to launch Operation Python Dance III in southeast during the 2019 general elections.
Vanguard reports that the group said this, in a statement issued in Abakaliki, Ebonyi state capital, by Mazi Obinna Nwankwo, northern coordinator, and Rev. Bobby Ezemuonye, southern coordinator, of the youth council.
The statement read: “From an intelligent report, those that visited Aso Rock under the guise of Igbo Youths have a sole ambition to disclose on how to clamp down on some Biafra agitators staying in the southeast as operation python is commencing in the country, instead of pleading for a presidential pardon on their behalf because they were handpicked by a senator seeking to gain oil block in 2019. They never realized that their action may dwindle the electoral fortunes of President Buhari, who is in dare need of Igbo votes.
“There’s no constitutional provision of acting national leader for Ohanaeze Youth Wing. Those that visited and assured him of their partnership are not members of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council. A few of them are Igbo but majority from investigation were recruited from IDP camps from Middle Belt and others are from South-South.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that President Buhari has called on Nigerian youths to prepare themselves for political leadership as his generation will eventually quit the scene for the younger ones to takeover.
