Never Again Shall Igbo Fight War – Ohanaeze by VERQUEST111: 6:52pm On Jan 03
An Igbo apex sociocultural organization, the Ohanaeze Ndigbo , has said that the Igbo would never again go to war to resolve conflicts in the country .
It said the Igbo would rather use diplomacy as a tool for conflict resolution .

The President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo , Chief Nnia Nwodo , stated this at the 2018 Igbo International Leadership and Good Governance Retreat held at Abagana , Anambra State .

The retreat was organised by the World Igbo Leadership Council and the World Igbo Information and Communication Network .

The event , which was third in the series , was attended by renowned Igbo scholars from Abia , Anambra , Delta, Ebonyi , Enugu, Imo and Rivers states.

The first retreat was hosted at Ibusa , Delta State , by Prof Pat Utomi in 2016 , while the second was hosted by Dr Ogbonnaya Onu in 2017 at Uburu in Ebonyi State .

Nwodo, who commended the organisers of the annual retreat , said though , it was not in doubt that Igbo were facing large scale marginalisation in Nigeria , the way to overcome it was not through fighting another war requiring killing of people at the war fronts , but by adopting peaceful means and dialogue .

While citing the issue of states and local governments ’ creation in Nigeria in which he said the Igbo were short -changed , Nwodo noted that such anomalies could be corrected through dialogue and making other Nigerians to see the need for equity and justice in the Nigeria project .

He said : “ The military created states and local governments and gave the North the highest numbers , not because our population was the smallest , but just part of the marginalisation .
“ But we should be patient and continue to do what we have already started , knowing that the battle is no longer the type that will be fought with guns, but using intelligence .

“ We have suffered so much and that is why we should apply diplomacy . One of such diplomatic moves is the planned handshake across the Niger in which Igbo leaders will be dialoguing with Yoruba leaders in Enugu in the coming week .”
