Quit Notice to Ndigbo: A Life line disconnection.
The threat of Arewa Youths to a large extent seems to evaluate the intellectual property of both regional and central Government and equate it for a known fact, as Nigerians, we understand our tribal strengths, no doubt.
Having known that, it therefore leaves every sensible and conscious emotion in doubt as why Arewa Youths are chosen to think for great elites of Northern extraction, owing to reactions from the Government quarters that accommodates Arewa youths, it is weak and unable to confront members of the organization for taking such position at this 21st century.
However, I just wish to remind our Government as history/records continually registers how and where Ndigbo are loved. First, it was during the administration of governor Fashola of Lagos state, who callously deported Igbo bothers to a comfortable apartment at Onitsha bridge, and nobody reacted against such inhuman treatment, therefore Arewa youths sees it as tribe you can easily slapat will , after all they live without god father (the Igbos).
Arewa youth’s insult tells how much more Ndigbo stands to be humiliated even in time to come, not minding what they have already gone through from the hands of the entire tribe of Nigeria.
In Lagos ndigbo and their businesses are rewarded with constant fire outbreaks in different location with little or no compensation from the government, evenwhen they arecompelled topay taxes at a sell of chewing gum, at the end, the law allows for government occupation for such affected business environment.

It is also a tradition that at the slightest provocation of the public urchins called (Agbero) among themselves in Lagos, Igbo man’s goods are carted away for settlement, we may not have forgotten so soon the threat of Oba of Lagos to Ndigbo in Lagos, where he assured the Igbos of throwing t

I was initially unable to register, but then I realized I was using the account of a second NGO I'm with that does not have ECOSOC accreditation. Once I logged in with with my primary NGO, which is accredited, I was able to designate representatives. (I assume that that is what registration refers to, as that was the only available action to take.)

Nous sommes très frapper par ce sujet, en pleine 21 eme siècle ont ne parlera pas de la pauvreté sans parlé de l’Afrique. Étant et restant le continent le plus frappé par la pauvreté, notre participation et tel que,parler de ce sujet c'est d’abord mettre l’Afrique au centre de notre conférence et chercher comment mettre en œuvres l'objectif 17, l'objectif 1, l'objectif 2 et l'objectif 14 pour un Afrique prospère.
