A pro-Nigeria group known as Igbos for a Progressive Nigeria ( IPAN ) has condemned in very strong terms the idea of what it described as a minority group setting up a security outfit for the Igbo nation with a semblance of Amotekun in the Southwest of the country.
IPAN at a press briefing in Awka maintained that the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra ( IPOB ) Nnamdi Kanu can not dictate for the entire Igbo nation because it held that the formation of the said security outfit was not a consensus among Igbo leaders.
The group also held that Ndigbo believed in a united Nigeria and that someone can not be in the hiding and continue to incite the masses against the government.
National president of IPAN Mr.Lawrence Onuzulike who presided over the press conference alongside other officers, said Ndigbo were Nigerians and they have contributed in no small measure to the growth and development of the country since independence.
Onuzulike said, ” Ndigbo are firm believers in the one Nigeria project. They can be found in many places across the country notwithstanding the remoteness. This shows that the vast majority of Ndigbo believe in a united Federal Republic of Nigeria where one can attain the Nigerian dream while mutually coexisting with other parts of the country. “
