The Biafra Nations Youth League (BNYL) has accused the Federal Government of appointing people to positions based on sentiments. Fidelis Obimkpe, one of the leaders of BNYL, made the allegation at the group’s General Assembly held in Calabar, Cross River State, on Wednesday.
Obimkpe in a video released by BNYL faulted the removal of Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN) Walter Onnoghen by President Muhammadu Buhari, adding that the marginalisation of the people of the South South and South East gave birth to renewed struggle for Biafra.
Meanwhile, BNYL has rejected the boycott of the 2019 elections in the two regions as proposed by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB). In a communique released by the National Leader of BNYL, Princewill Chimezie Richard, the group said that it “will not support anything that will not record 100% compliance.”
BNYL also stated that it has adopted a resolution of the group named after the Ejagham town of Ekukunela in Ikom, Cross River State, where its National Leadership Congress was held on April 12, 2016. BNYL said the Ekukunela Declaration has been adopted and would form the major guideline of the group.
