Ijaw Youths have publicly denounced the role their parents played against the Igbos during the Nigeria/Biafra Civil War of 1967-1970.

They, however pleaded for forgiveness, emphasizing that if the level of awareness and information technology available today were the same then the Ijaw people (who are brothers with the Igbos) would have supported the Biafra’s cause.

Addressing the Ohanaeze Youth Council’s (OYC’s) summit held in Owerri; the Imo State capital, the President of Ijaw Youth Council, Comrade Udengs Eradiri, said Niger Delta erred for not supporting the Biafra’s cause, and heaped the blame on lack of awareness and misinformation.

He said, “If we had the type of awareness and information technology we have today, then, we would have stood firmly with Biafra to win the war, but we are working hard to resolve the issue,” he stated.

Comrade Eradiri expressed happiness that notwithstanding their role in the civil war, “Ndigbo voted overwhelmingly for their son, President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, in 2011 and since then the zone has been supporting his administration.”

He pointed out that Ijaw youths were pleased with their show of love and solidarity, and pledged that Niger Delta youths would support Ndigbo “when it is their turn to produce the next president of the country.”

He lamented that the issue of injustice that led to the civil war “is still the same issue bedevilling the country (Nigeria) today,” and asked for concerted efforts to address the issues, noting that Nigeria must not be allowed to break up (funny though).
