- Shehu Sani has been cautioned against calling for the return of power to the southwest
- The Ohanaeze Ndigbo said such reasoning cannot be entertained as the southeast is yet to produce a president in Nigeria
- The organisation said such reasoning that the ruling party should zone its 2023 presidency to the southwest is the major reason for the current state of the nation
The Ohanaeze Ndigbo on Wednesday, August 14, disagreed with human right activist and former lawmaker, Shehu Sani, over zoning of the presidency to the southwest.
The spokesperson for the Ohanaeze, Chuks Ibegbu, said the southeast is yet to produce a president in Nigeria.
Vanguard reports that such reasoning that the ruling party should zone its 2023 presidency to the southwest is the major reason for the current state of the nation.
He also said that after President Buhari - who represents the north - it is the turn of the southeast to produce the next president.
He also alleged that the Nigeria Army, the Police and other security operatives are agents of impunity which led to the Taraba shooting, the killing of more than 400 Shi’ite members in Zaria, the killing of more than 200 pro-Biafra activists among many others.
“Unfortunately, our so-called politicians care less over these killings and are only interested in their pockets and positions. Many hoodlums and killers were recruited into our security forces and we are paying for it now," Ibegbu said.
