Sit-at-home: Nnamdi Kanu is new leader of Ndigbo – IYM
Igbo Youth Movement (IYM) said Wednesday that the success of Tuesday’s sit-at-home order has proved to the world that “Nnamdi Kanu is the leader of Ndigbo “.
In statement by the founder of IYM, Evang. Elliot Ugochukwu-Ukoh, the group said “he lives in our hearts.”
“Nnamdi has broken the jinx. He has successfully done that, which they thought couldn’t be done. He commands the loyalty of our people, and that’s a wonderful thing. He is our leader in whom we are well pleased.
“Our people, especially the younger generation have been craving for a sincere leader they would follow, one who will not trade them off, they believe they have been stuck with imposed leaders thrown up by the incongruent, strange and unitary Nigerian structure.
“They have helplessly watched over the years as INEC, Wadata plaza and Aso villa imposed leaders on them.
“Tuesday May 30th was a great opportunity for them to tell the world: Nnamdi Kanu is our leader, he lives in our hearts. Their total compliance to the IPOB sit at home order is a powerful statement. Its implication is not lost on the powers that be. It’s a watershed in our history, with far reaching consequences.
“The issue now is how do we use this to get a better deal for our people. How well can the gains from this great event be properly and intelligently harnessed and used for the common good of all. Nnamdi has done very well.”
