The Ohanaeze Ndigbo has accused two northern leaders, Junaid Mohammed and Prof Ango Abdullahi, of constituting themselves into agents of destabilisation of Nigeria ahead of 2023.
The apex Igbo socio-cultural group asked the duo to stop trying to cause disaffection among Nigerians with the way they make public utterances.
The group, through its deputy spokesperson, Chuks Ibegbu, claimed that Mohammed and Abdullahi are spreading divisiveness,
It asked the federal government to caution them while adding: “They are purveyors of hate speech and agents of social disequilibrium."
In the statement issued in Enugu, the organisation urged those it described as 'suffering youths' and the people of the north to disregard their antics.
"These men have not done anything to solve the insecurity problem in the north or end the endemic poverty in that region.
"None of them has been associated with any social or economic value to the talakawas whom they claim falsely to be defending. They are rabble-rousers and self-appointed leaders of the north," the organisation said while claiming that the population of the north, as claimed by Abdullahi, is bogus.
The Ohanaeze Ndigbo noted that the two northern leaders have continued to deceive their people even though the 2014 national conference report favours them.
While expressing happiness that the middle belt now understands antics from the core north, the organisation added: “Their plans to destabilise Nigeria will fail. If it will take a Nigerian from my village to rescue Nigeria from long years of misrule, why not allow him.
"Zoning and rotation of the presidency is the only way to ensure the stability of the country and if it was torpedoed by ex-President Jonathan, then it has nothing to do with a Nigerian Presidency of Igbo extraction.”
Legit.ng earlier reported that Ango Abdullahi, who chairs the Northern Elders Forum (NEF) recently said that the north can keep power for 100 years if it likes.
he reportedly added that democracy is all about numbers and the region has the numerical strength to achieve it.
