Politics [ARCHIVE] Ohanaeze Blasts Buhari For Being 'Biased in His Political Appointments'



Nigeria - The Ohanaeze Ndigbo has expressed its dissatisfaction with President Muhammadu Buhari's appointments.

The pan Igbo socio-cultural organization said the appointments has revealed the president’s deep rooted hatred for the Igbo nation.

Anambra State president of Ohaneze, Dr. Chris Eluemuno, in an interview at the state –owned Anambra Broadcasting Service Television in Awka, said the situation would still have been the same even if the entire Igbo voted for him.

“He appointed five service chiefs and there is no Igbo man, even though Igbo have qualified people to occupy the positions.

Eluemuno, who is also the chairman of chairmen of Ohaneze in the seven Igbo speaking states, argued that Buhari had no reason to discriminate against the Igbo because Igbonation played prominent roles in the development of Nigeria and should therefore not be discriminated against in the scheme of things.

According to him, apart from the Secretary to the Government of Federation, SGF, the remaining appointments are ministers and board members, which constitutionally must go to all the 36 states of the federation, adding that appointing an Igbo minister would not therefore be a favour to them.

“...our position is that there is no way the president should expect all Nigerians to vote for him in the last presidential election.That statement contradicted Buhari’s earlier stand that he belonged to everybody and belonged to nobody.” he said.
