A youth group under the umbrella of Ohaneze Ndigbo, the apex cultural igbo association, has disapproved the comments by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media, Garba Shehu, over his comments that President Muhammadu Buhari was very passionate about Nigeria’s unity.
The group, Ohaneze Youth Council (OYC), said if Ndigbo did not have a presidential ticket, then Nigeria would automatically divide.
OYC maintained that Buhari’s action and inactions posed a threat to Nigeria’s unity.
The National President of OYC, Igboyaka. O. Igboyaka in a statement described President Buhari as a direct opposite of Nigeria’s unity.
The statement partly reads, “Shehu is on paid job and one of the aiders that are endangering the unity of Nigeria through his sycophantic service to the President.
“President Buhari and his cabal have violated the Federal character principle with reckless abandon, leading Nigeria into the path of disintegration. His high handedness with tribal impunity contributed to the present ethnic crisis ravaging Nigeria.
“President Buhari has done everything possible to fooster Nigeria’s disunity. What remain is the explosion of Nigeria into many countries. Which shall happen soon and f APC and PDP sent Ndigbo an opportunity to fly their flags during the 2023 presidential elections.
“With the rate of insecurity and mayhem perpetrated by Buhari’s relatives, activities of Bandits, kidnappers and Fulani killer herdsmen that are sucking the blood of innocent Nigerians daily, Buhari lacks the moral justification to claim that he is passionate about Nigeria’s unity. In all ramifications there will be no Nigeria if APC and PDP fail to field an Ogbo person as their presidential candidate in 2023.”
