It further stated that an Igbo Chief of Staff will unite the country, end secessionist movement in the South, add transparency to governance and ensure strategic stability of the economy.

“This is the most patriotic but rare opportunity for President Muhammadu Buhari to heal Nigeria from disintegration and collapse. In retrospect, it was an Igbo who masterminded the amalgamation of defunct political parties to merge into APC.”

Ohanaeze Youths added that the Nigerian leader can “rewrite history by being contradictory to predictions and prove his legitimate political sagacity through the appointment of an Igbo from anywhere as the new Chief of Staff, even from the opposition party,” OYC said.
