An elder statesman, and former chairman of Ohanaeze Ndigbo planning and strategy committee, Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu, has described President Muhammadu Buhari as someone who is not corrupt.
The Nation reports that Iwuanyanwu made the statement when the Emir of Bichi, Kano state, Aminu Ado Bayero paid him a visit in his house in Owerri, the Imo state capital.
The elder statesman insisted that nobody can accuse the president of not fighting corruption, noting that it was Buhari who introduced the war against indiscipline in Nigeria.
He also dismissed the suggestion that Igbo people hate the president, saying it was wrong to give the impression that Ndigbo hate Buhari.
Iwuanyanwu stated that all the people of the southeast want is to be treated equally like other regions of the country. He said people of the southeast are firm believers in the unity of Nigeria.
Meanwhile, the Ohanaeze Youth Council Worldwide has warned Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and fellow politician, former vice president, Abubakar Atiku, not to think about running in 2023 presidential elections because it is the turn of the southeast region.
Vanguard reports that the youths issued the warnings in a statement by their council's president-general, Okechukwu Isiguzoro.
Isiguzoro, who sympathised with Osinbajo over claims of a rift between him and President Muhammadu Buhari, argued that the professor of law stood no chance of succeeding Buhari after his tenure ends in 2023.
