In a statement by OYC Deputy President, Obinna Achionye and Secretary General, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike, the youth group, who commended the governors for rejecting Ruga, said it opened new opportunities for Ndigbo to prove their business ingenuity in animal husbandry and crop farming, which the South-East states should take advantage of to empower the populace.

They stressed that farm settlements would create opportunities for Ndigbo to overtake the herdsmen in cattle business and also called for a joint South-East Youth Empowerment Programme, to be funded by the five states.
