In response to the socio-economic challenges facing the country, SDPI emphasized the need for support rather than protests, cautioning against external influences attempting to incite the Igbos to join broader demonstrations on issues like rising inflation and general hardship.

Vitus Okechi, the president of SDPI and a former commissioner and outgoing local government chairman in Enugu State, outlined the historical neglect and marginalization suffered by Ndigbo since the civil war in 1970. Okechi questioned the motives of those encouraging protests, pointing out their previous inaction during periods of Igbo suffering and emphasizing the importance of supporting the Tinubu administration in addressing the nation’s challenges.

While acknowledging the current hardships in Nigeria, Okechi advocated for solidarity with the Tinubu administration, asserting that the government has initiated measures aimed at alleviating the suffering of Nigerians. The call for support reflects SDPI’s perspective on navigating difficult times by backing the administration’s efforts for long-term improvement.
