Ohanaeze Youths: FG Should Provide Igbo, Oduduwa, Ijaw Radios Too
The Youth wing of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo has demanded from the Federal Government the establishment of radio stations for all the tribes in the country.
This came in reaction to plans by the government to establish Fulani Radio for herdsmen.
Lending his voice to the FG’s decision, which has drawn a wide range of condemnations, the National President of the OYC, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro said the government should not hesitate to reciprocate such for all other tribes in the country.
He said in the statement made available to DAILY POST that “the leadership of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide encourages the Federal Government to build Fulani Radio for herdsmen so far as they will also be setting up Igbo Radio, Oduduwa Radio, Ijaw Radio and other tribal radios.
“Anything short of that will bring Nigeria’s version of Rwanda Genocide through the proposed Fulani Radio.”
He added that “with the alleged full mobilisation of N100billion grant to Myetti Allah, when the Federal Government is yet to reach out to Biafra agitators and Niger Delta Militia, this will be severely detrimental.
“Ohanaeze Youths call for caution over the Fulani Radio, as it will further divide Nigeria in tribal lines, and likely spark out civil disobedience in the polity.
“This is as the Federal Government’s good intentions for setting up the Fulani Radio will be possibly hijacked to disseminate falsehood, hate message and outright information against other tribes.
“This is not the period for appeasing one tribe ahead of another using Government machinery, more so when Radio Biafra was closed down for allegedly spreading hate message.”
