On Wednesday the Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide asked Southeast governors and Igbo leaders to tell President Muhammadu Buhari the truth about pro-Biafra agitator, Nnamdi Kanu.
The Okechukwu Isiguzoro-led faction of Ohanaeze said Igbo leaders and governors must say the truth about where Buhari is not getting it right on Kanu on the region.
Isiguzoro lamented that most Southeast politicians are unwilling to make sacrifices for the good of the region.
In a statement he signed, Isiguzoro lamented that most Southeast politicians are “remote-controlled” by their counterparts in the seat of power.
Isiguzoro accused Igbo leaders and politicians of failing to show bravery amid the challenges confronting the Southeast.
He noted that the Southeast is plagued with so much calamities and impediments.
“Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide laments on the ineptitude of the southeast political leaders to show bravery, heroism, and political will to voice the truth to President Muhammadu Buhari on where he is not getting it right as the southeast remains the adversities and calamitous impediments that had befallen the IGBO.
“Ndigbo are cognizant of the fact that Abuja holds the remote controls of most actions of the southeast politicians, most of the southeast Governors are reluctant to make sacrifices for the southeast, they are inclined to trade off the Igbo’s interests for Abuja’s enticements and inducements, in compensation for doing Abuja’s bidding and interests in the East,” the statement reads partly.
