Why Igbos must boycott NYSC posting to volatile North: PRESS RELEASE BY OGANIRU NDI IGBO (IGBOVILLE)



We have received confirmation that thousands of Igbo youths and other Southern Christians were mobilized by National Youth Service Corps for primary assignments in the conflict endemic areas of Northern Nigeria.


We hereby state as follows:


1. It is heartless and insensitive to post Igbo and christian graduates to the North in disregard of the current security situation.


2. We will hold the President and NYSC DG responsible for any of them that loses his/her life to Boko Haram and religious extremists.


3. The government must immediately re-deploy  them to safer areas of the country or suspend the entire NYSC scheme. We are still mourning 11 corpers killed in April (2011) as a result of the post election crisis in Northern Nigeria as well as others that have lost their lives to the current upheaval in Yobe, Kaduna, Kano, Jos, Maiduguri, Gombe and other Northern states.


4. We use this opportunity to remind the government and the NYSC that it is barely a year since we lost many youth corpers of southern Nigerian extraction to the senseless carnage in most parts of northern Nigeria. Sending more of our youths into the same dungeon is not only callous but highly insensitive to the esteemed value we place on our children many of whom have already been sacrificed to the Nigerian debacle. Thus we ask, how many more lives of our children must we sacrifice for the oneness of Nigeria?


5. We hereby put the Federal Government and NYSC on notice that we will not hesitate to use every resources available to us to bring them to account if any Igbo graduate is put in harms way in the North.


6. All Igbo graduates posted to the North are advised to boycott the service and forward their posting details to us through this email; igbo.ville@yahoo.com.


7. Any Igbo graduate who boycotts his posting to the north must be issued exemption letter by the NYSC on or before 10th of July 2012.




8. We wish to remind President Jonathan of the enormous sacrifices, in blood, that Igbos have made to bring about and sustain his presidency. Our reward cannot be for him to conspire with those wishing to wipe off our educational advantage. We will view his silence in this matter as an act of hostility against Ndigbo.

9. We are by a copy of this letter to relevant international agencies putting them on notice about this new dimension of Igbo cleansing in Nigeria.

God Bless Igboville

God Bless Ndigbo

God Bless Nigeria

  1. GEJ please be sensitive to LIVES OF PEOPLE. Parents cannot keep watering the ailing country with youthful blood.It takes a very long time to train up a child from nursery to university , ONLY TO GO AND GET KILLED RAPED AND MAIMED BY HOODLUMS who have no future.


  2. it is insensitive in the part of Government to have sent some corps members to such a barbaric areas of the northern Nigeria. I think it is shear wickedness and gread in the part of NYSC officers to have taught of posting great Igbo sons and daughters to a valueless areas of the north. I believe that Igbos must resist such attempt to destroy its future leaders.
