- The president general of Ohanaeze Ndigbo has advised the Igbo youths on the Nigerian Army's Operation Python Dance III - He urged the youths not do anything that will turn the zone into a battlefield - He advised them to take advantage of the forthcoming 2019 election to support a government that would change the country for better The president general of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief Nnia Nwodo, has warned Igbo youths not to do anything that would pitch them against the Nigerian state and turn the region into a war zone as the 82 Division of the Nigerian Army carries out Operation Python Dance III. Nwodo said the people of the southeast would vote for equity, merit and fairness in 2019 and urged them to take advantage of next year’s general elections to support a government that would change the country for better. The Sun reports that he gave the advice in Enugu on Tuesday, October 30, during the Business Conference of Ohaneze Ndigbo in the Diaspora, represented by Igbo World Assembly (IWA).

The president general said his position has been that Nigerians are better together. He said considering the investments the Igbo have made in the country; they would not have a better deal in such conflagration. Nwodo said the yearning of the majority of Nigerians is a system of government that would re-engineer the economy the way it was in the first republic. He insisted that the only way to achieve this is to restructure the system of governance. “Four zones out of the six in the country have set the agenda for restructuring. I appeal to our people to go out and vote during the election because your warfare is your vote,” he said. Earlier, the chairman of IWA, which boasts of membership in 37 countries, Chief Nwachukwu Anakwenze, said the group would mobilise Ndigbo and other Nigerians for the elections. Anakwenze said their support for any political party would be based on the position of such party in the restructure debate and rule of law. “We are happy that the ball is set for another election and, among other things, we demand a debate by the presidential candidates to enable the electorate to make informed choices,” he said.

The Army was commended by a human rights organisation for the success of the much criticized Operation Python Dance III in the region. After the first two editions, the military launched the third exercise early this year on the heels of the uncontrollable surge in kidnapping, banditry, armed robbery, human trafficking and other crimes in the southeast and parts of the south. In a successful seven month spell by the 82 Division Nigerian Army, the Human Rights and Crime Monitoring Group expressed optimum satisfaction with the exercise. The renowned group, a coalition of Nigerian intellectuals and professionals that monitors human rights concerns and security issues majorly in the southeast and south south geo-political zones of Nigeria said it is ecstatic with the peaceful atmosphere in the region as the country marks it’s 58th anniversary.
