ABUJAâ€”A group under the aegis, Igbo Youth Forum yesterday dismissed the prediction of doom by Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu that war looms in Anambra State if Andy Uba obtained favourable judgment from the Appeal Court, even as they called on him to apologize to the people of Anambra and the entire Ndigbo for alleged sins of the past.
Addressing newsmen in Abuja yesterday, the National President of the group, Mr Kevin Okoro who stressed that the Ndigbo will not be drawn into another baseless war by Ojukwu, however described the comments from Ojukwu as self-centered and unworthy of an elder statesman.
According to them, â€œOur attention has been drawn to the rather comic threat of war, over a subsisting court case, by Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu.
â€œThe action is unfortunate and most pathetic coming from a man whose only contribution to the Igbo race was leading them to a war and abandoning them in the middle of a battle that consumed over 1 million Igbo sons and daughters.â€
â€œHas Ojukwu apologised to the families of slain Igbo sons whom he led to their doom? What about the families of renowned Igbo elites whose wise counsel Ojukwu sentimentalized to his own political advantage.”
