Go To Your Knees, You Have Insulted The Entire Igbo Race, IWU Upbraids Onochie
The Igbo World Union, IWU has called on the Senior Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on new media, Lauretta Onochie to go back home, learn the characteristics of a typical Igbo woman to be better informed.
IWU who felt uncomfortable with the statement credited to Onochie on the appeal of the Southeast Traditional Rulers and Religious leaders to the Presidency to release the IPOB leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, shortly after an emergency meeting in Umuahia, Abia State, maintained that her actions goes contrary to the attributes of a typical Igbo woman which include caring and submissiveness.
The Igbo World Union who spoke through their President General, His Imperial Majesty Amb. Sir Mishak Nnanta (KJW KSM JP) demanded unreserved apologies from Onochie as she not only insulted the traditional and religious institutions but the entire Igbo race.
Nnanta who further directed Onochie to go on fact findings on the repercussions/negative effects of insulting or speaking against the kings and anointed servants of God, wondered why Onochie should make herself available to play role of denigrating her kinsmen.
Nnanta, the Gburu gburu Ndi Igbo Dum pointed out that the present Nigeria needs actions that will bring lasting solution to the various challenges which has bedeviled the country and not comments like the one credited to Onochie, which will only succeed in breeding ill-feelings, hatred and disintegration.
He pointed out that the Southeasterners and Nigerians are still expecting the President to react to the humble request made to him by the traditional rulers and religious leaders, which could come through Femi Adesina, the Special Adviser, Media and Publicity to President Muhammadu Buhari and not the Senior Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on new media.
He encouraged Onochie to use her office to build peace, truth, fair play, fellowship and friendship.
Recall that the South-East Council of Traditional Rulers and representatives of Igbo Archbishops and Bishops; and the World Igbo Congress, WIC, had in a nine point communique issued at the end of their meeting appealed to the federal government, to release the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
Onochie had also in a statement credited to her last weekend gave reasons the president would not heed the appeal, saying that the demand for the release of a “lunatic is as annoying as it is insulting to the memory of those who have lost their lives in a needless blood-letting in the South Eastof Nigeria. These are political neonates who are also, ignorant of the laws of our land. Where is their sense of decency? Where is their shame? Where is the truth that Christianity preaches? When will truth be released from jail?”
