|Northern Igbo Leaders Seek Military Deployment For Elections by Controversy: 7:40pm On Feb 27, 2015|
Onyebuchi Ezigbo in Abuja
A summit of Ndigbo living in Northern Nigeria has urged the Federal Government to ensure efficient deployment of security operatives, including the military, in all parts of Nigeria at least three weeks to the Presidential election in enforcement of the constitutional obligation to protect lives and property of all Nigerians.
It condemned in its totality the alleged move by some officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to reduce the voting powers of Ndigbo in Nigeria through denial of PVCs.
The meeting also urged the federal government and indeed various northern state governments to urgently consider paying due and adequate compensation to all Ndigbo who lost their lives and property in the 2011 post-election violence as what is good for the goose is equally good for the gander.
In a communique issued at the end of the first Summit of Ndigbo in Northern Nigeria which took place Thursday night at Agura Hotel in Abuja, the leaders vowed that Ndigbo will resist any further attempt "to employ violence to kill and maim their sons and daughters with or without any provocation in any part of Nigeria on account of the outcome of 2015 general elections".
It said it would soon declare a three day National Prayer of all Ndigbo in the north for the successful 2015 general elections.
