Buhari is pushing Ibos out of Nigeria says Ezeife

25 July 2016, 11:41

Abuja - Former Anambra State Governor, Chukwuemeka Ezeife, has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of pushing Ndigbo out of the country and also corrupting the constitution of Nigeria.

Ezeife, who made the statement in an interview with Vanguard, also said for the unity of Nigeria not to be negotiable, there must be restructuring of the country.

He said: “We discussed the problem that the South East is facing in today’s Nigeria. The problem of hatred from Mr. President.

“At the beginning, not everybody saw it. I saw it early enough and thinking it was a mistake and not a deliberate action, I started shouting. We have not been taken here, we have not been taken there, you have appointed 10 persons nobody from Southeast; you have appointed 20 people nobody is from Southeast, you have appointed 25, 30, 40 going further we have nobody, no soul from the Southeast.

“So, I started knowing that it is beyond a mistake. I was thinking it was a mistake and since I believe that the person who is President must have conscience, I was raising his consciousness to the mistake so that he can correct it even the ones I tell you to write, you will find that everything I was saying is true. Instead of being taken seriously for amendment to be made, I was called enemy of the North and enemy of Buhari. So, these days, I am not talking too much again, I am talking about Nigeria.

“Instead of making the black man to get more respect and dignity, we are generating shame for blacks on earth. We are generating shame for the blacks for whom we are supposed to be improving their respect and dignity.”

Ezeife noted that the Igbos have a tradition of building anywhere they reside but that President Buhari was trying to push them out of Nigeria.
