South-East Speaks On Leaving Nigeria Because Of Buhari
The inhabitants of the South-Eastern part of Nigeria has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of pushing them out of the country.
The Igbo speaking people further alleged that the incumbent leader is the reason why there is political tension in their region.
Former governor of Anambra State, Chukwuemeka Ezeife, made the allegation while speaking with newsmen, Ezenwoko’s Blog reports.
Ezeife, who was speaking at a public presentation of three books on the revival of Igbo culture by the founder of a non-governmental organisation, Save Our Heritage Initiative (SOHI), Dame May Ikokwu, noted that Buhari had been trying to push the Igbos out of Nigeria, but they would not yield to his move.
He said: “We must be careful with ourselves, we Igbo people. If somebody is targeting to kill us, should we go and kill ourselves?
“Let us tell our people the truth: we are not leaving Nigeria tomorrow and those who know don’t even want to leave
“Are we leaving because of one man-Buhari? Before Buhari, were we being pushed out of Nigeria?
“I said Buhari has been pushing us out of Nigeria. Should we obey him?” Ezeife reiterated.
Meanwhile, the All Progressive Congress,(APC), has said that the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, are systematically helping the ruling party to remain Nigeria’s leading political party.
According to APC, the Southeast geopolitical zone which is considered as the stronghold of the opposition party is now melting into the ruling party by mass defection.
Ezenwoko’s Blog reports that the chairman, APC Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee, CECPC, Governor Mai Mala Buni, asserted this while inaugurating the nine-man National Reconciliation Committee (NRC) of the party.
