Ohanaeze-Ndigbo Youth Council (OYC) has given reason
why people of the South East extraction should relocate their business headquarters to the region.
OYC said this would make the region the economic hub of Nigeria.
In a statement by its Secretary General, Okwu Nnabuike and National Vice President, Obinna Achionye, the group decried how Igbos
lost their investments estimated at ”over N63 trillion” in the North
to fire and violence.
They also lamented that the demolition exercises ordered by the Lagos State Government has affected Igbo people.
The statement added: “Igbo Youths mourn our Youths who fell victim during the operation Python Dance and those killed in the North East.
“We call on the Federal Government to protect all citizens no matter the circumstances.
“We also call on our brothers outside Igboland to relocate their business headquarters to the South East in order to make the region economic hub of Nigeria.”
