Igbo apex socio-cultural organization, the Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has vowed that the Igbo would never again go to war to resolve conflicts in the country.

It said the Igbos would rather use diplomacy as a tool for conflict resolution.

The President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief Nnia Nwodo, stated this at the 2018 Igbo International Leadership and Good Governance Retreat held at Abagana, Anambra State.

He said: “The military created states and local governments and gave the North the highest numbers, not because our population was the smallest, but just part of the marginalisation.

“But we should be patient and continue to do what we have already started, knowing that the battle is no longer the type that will be fought with guns, but using intelligence.

“We have suffered so much and that is why we should apply diplomacy. One of such diplomatic moves is the planned handshake across the Niger in which Igbo leaders will be dialoguing with Yoruba leaders in Enugu in the coming week.”

Nwodo, who commended the organisers of the annual retreat, said though, it was not in doubt that Igbo were facing large scale marginalisation in Nigeria, the way to overcome it was not through fighting another war requiring killing of people at the war fronts, but by adopting peaceful means and dialogue.
