- The Ohanaeze Ndigbo says it would investigate ownership of all oil blocks in Niger Delta area of the country
- According to the group, this will be done to ensure fair distribution to all parts of the country
- On the issue of leadership of the National Assembly, Ohanaeze said what Ndigbo needed most is restructuring of Nigeria and not who occupies leadership positions in NASS
The Ohanaeze Ndigbo has revealed its intention to investigate the ownership of all oil blocks in Niger Delta.
In a statement by the deputy publicity secretary of the group, Chuks Ibegbu, the apex pan Igbo organisation said the investigation will be done to ensure that no part of the country dominates the sector.
It said it would also collect data on all positions and their distributions in all federal ministries, agencies and parastatals with a view to ensuring fair distribution to all parts of the country, The Nation reports.
Going further, Ohanaeze advised the Federal Character Commission to ensure fair representation of all sections of the country in the country’s commonwealth without sacrificing merit.
On the issue of Senate presidency or speakership of the National assembly, the group said what Ndigbo needed most is restructuring of Nigeria and not who occupies what position.
“We are not much interested in positions now but what our people, the common Igbo masses will benefit from the country in its entirety," the group insisted.
