Prince Samuel Udeogu, yesterday, cautioned the leader of the Niger Delta People Volunteer Force, NDPVF, Alhaji Mujahid Asari Dokubo to desist from using the Igbo ethnic nationality to settle his scores with the North and South-West.
In a statement issued in Abakaliki, the Chairman, who stressed that Ndigbo were not enemies to the North or South-West, added that Ndigbo were not biased over the victory of General Muhammadu Buhari, but were satisfied with the results as declared by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.
On the National Assembly election conducted in the state, the party emphasised that the outcome of the election substantially met the electoral laws except in some areas in Ebonyi South senatorial zone.
“It is now timely to warn the leader of the Niger Delta People Volunteer Force, NDPVF, Alhaji Mujahid Dokubo-Asari, to desist from using the Igbo ethnic nationality to settle his scores with the North and South-western Nigeria.
“Ndigbo are not conquered people and we are extremely happy about the outcome of the presidential election which produced General Muhammadu Buhari as winner.
“Ndigbo are no enemies to the North or Western Nigeria but partners in Nigeria project and no one, including Asari-Dukubo should remind us of the past.”
