South East Governors and other leaders
The call was made by Igwe Chijioke Nwankwo, the traditional ruler of Nawfia in Njikoka Local Government Area who said Igbos living outside the southeast should use the opportunity of the quit notice to return home.
He maintained that traditional rulers in the state decided to make the call urging Igbos to come home and invest, their investments are better secured in their homeland than elsewhere.
“It is the culture and the tradition of the Igbos to always go home at least three, four times in a year. In order to do this, you must have a comfortable home. It must not be a mansion and we the traditional rulers have been making this call even be- fore this threat. They should start investing at home because the only place you can run to is your own home town,” he said.
Speaking further, the royal father said that Arewa youths quit notice should serve as a wake-up call to the rest of Nigeria to organise a round-table conference rather than the national conference held in 2014.
The traditional rulers of Nri, Omasi and Umuawulu communities, Eze Obidiegwu Onyesoh, Igwe Benjamin Okeji and Igwe Joel Egwuonwu, advised sons and daughters of South- east to repatriate their economic ventures to the zone as well as join hands with their state governments to transform the region.
They also stressed the need for federal government to organise a national conference to define the fate of the nation and its ethnic nationalities.
