President Muhammadu Buhari is ostracizing the Igbos with the way he is running the country, former Anambra state governor, Chukwuemeka Ezerife has stated.
Speaking in an interview published by Punch, he said Buhari’s statement that he belongs to everyone and no one isn’t true.
“Chief Olusegun Obasanjo was president of Nigeria. Was IPOB fighting him? Was MASSOB (Movement for the Sovereign State of Biafra) fighting him? Was Biafra being promoted? (Former President Umaru) Yar’Adua was also from the North. (Dr. Goodluck) Jonathan spent over four years as the president of Nigeria. During his time, did you hear of anyone fighting for Biafra? Why is Buhari pushing the South-East out of Nigeria? If one wants to appoint people and they are removed from the offices they are in, does he want to make Igbo traders bankrupt?
“Last time, Mr. President said he was coming to Enugu State. He didn’t go, neither did he send a representative or an apology. The President is disdainful of Igbos and it doesn’t matter. We are begging him because he’s President. We could say we don’t care. But we must care because he is sharing what belongs to all of us to some of us and Igbos are left out.”
