Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma, has charged Igbo youths to discard the Biafra agitation and embrace opportunities in Nigeria.

Mr Hope, made this assertion at the presentation of his book titled “Reflections on the Igbo question,” held in the state capital, Owerri, on Saturday.

“What I have simply set out in this book is for our youths to appreciate the opportunities before them and embrace such instead of bemoaning the marginalisation of Ndigbo and resorting to violence, which is self-defeat,” Mr Hope said.

He urged Igbo youth to leverage on technology, trade and commerce to “dominate Nigeria and dictate the pace of development.”

“I don’t want our youths to think that somebody is holding down their destiny. I also don’t want them to continue to be frustrated by the deliberate policies of exclusion,” he added.

This comes amidts agitation for secession in South-East, which has heightened since Mr Buhari assumed office in 2015, leading to violent attacks on public facilities in the region and the killing of security officers.

The rearrest and detention of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has worsened the situation, making Mr Buhari more unpopular in the region.
