PostSubject: Buhari’s treats Ndigbo as second class citizens, Ohanaeze cries   Fri Jan 20 2017, 14:58

The new elected President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief Nnia Nwodo, has decried what he said is the present administration’s treatment of the eastern part of the country as second class citizens in Nigeria.
According to him, President Muhammadu Buhari has been truthful to his public declaration that his appointments must favour the states that voted overwhelmingly for him by ensuring that no arm of government, executive, judiciary or legislature is headed by an Igbo.
Nwodo also lamented that the president has ensured that ministries with lean capital votes are the ones assigned to Ndigbo.
Nwodo stated this on Thursday during the first meeting of the National Executive Committee of Ohanaeze Ndigbo in Enugu State.
He said, “No arm of government namely, the Executive, Judiciary or Legislature is headed by an Igbo. No section of the Armed Forces or paramilitary organisation is headed by an Igbo, neither the Supreme Court, Court of Appeal nor is the Federal High Court headed by an Igbo.
“We know in the history of this country when a Lieutenant Colonel was appointed to the position of Chief of General Staff over and above his superiors just to ensure ethnic balance. We know when a Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation was appointed Chief Justice of Nigeria was to ensure ethnic balance. We know when a former Military Head of State was drafted to run for president was to douse ethnic tensions.
“What is very perturbing is the public declaration of Mr President that his appointments must favour the states that voted overwhelmingly for him and those he trusts even against the provisions of our constitution relating to federal character. One is at sea why Ndigbo who campaigned and voted for him appear not to be trusted.
“No wonder, the ministers with lean capital votes are the ones assigned to Ndigbo. No wonder, he nominated ambassadors for confirmation to the National Assembly naming three ambassadors for some states and only one ambassador for each of the Igbo states. It’s no wonder, one year and eight months into his tenure as president; he has not visited any Igbo state.”

While Nwodo, regardless of all the anomalies he listed, extended the hands of fellowship of Ohanaeze to President Buhari in order to visit him with his executive members to see how the perceived errors could be amended, he called on Ndigbo to stop their on-going lamentations over marginalisation by other Nigerians.
He promised to meet with the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and the Movement for the Emancipation of Biafra (MASSOB), two of the major groups in the region calling for secession, to fashion the best way to resolve the Igbo question in Nigeria.
Nwodo added, “This brings me to the rise of MASSOB and IPOB, both organisations no matter how divided they appear in public are basically motivated by the same sense of outrage and bitterness. Our young men and women cannot tolerate a second class status in their country.”
