Restructuring conducted by Buhari’s govt will only favour the North – Ohanaeze

The Ohanaeze Ndigbo, on Thursday, chided the leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), for allegedly ordering that the November 18, 2017 governorship election in Anambra be cancelled.

This is even as Ohanaeze Youth Council (OYC), said it would reject any restructuring of Nigeria carried out by the  administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, saying it would not reflect equity and fairness.

Ohanaeze youth said they would rather prefer a restructuring exercise to be overseen by an Igbo leader or a leader from the South but not from the North.

President-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, John Nwodo, who led other national leaders of the organisation to the Anambra State House of Assembly, warned leaders of groups championing self-rule for the Igbo nation not to arrogate to themselves the supreme leadership of Igboland, Vanguard reports.

He said though it was obvious that Ndigbo were suffering marginalization in the affairs of the country, Igbo was still part and parcel of Nigeria, adding that in seeking mitigation of the injustice being meted to Ndigbo, civilized approach should be adopted.

He blasted the leader of IPOB for, according to him, making unguarded utterances that Anambra State governorship election slated for November would not hold, explaining that such utterance had already drawn the attention of the Inspector General of Police who, he stated, had deployed more police personnel to patrol Anambra State.

Kanu’s utterance, Nwodo stated, had breached the undertaking he took before him (Nwodo) when he was released from detention.

Earlier, Governor Willie Obiano, speaking through his Senior Special Assistant on Legislative Matters, Chiedozie Ezeugwa, said the state government was committed to the Igbo cause and would continue to do everything to support the Ohanaeze in protecting the interest  of the Igbo.
