President Muhammadu Buhari has received the commendation of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo general assembly worldwide.
The president was commended for appointing new Service Chiefs for the country.
This was disclosed by the president-general of the group, Onyeachonam Onuorah in Awka, the Anambra state capital.
According to him, Buhari did very well in listening to Nigerians. He consequently urged the new security chiefs not to disappoint the country.
The group also urged the president to consider south easterners when the time comes to select a new inspector general of police.
The statement read in part:
“There is no Igbo man among the newly appointed Service Chiefs. Those who claim that the newly appointed Chief of Defense Staff Maj Gen Leo Irabor is an Igbo man should tell us if Irabor is an Igbo name.
“As the Inspector General of Police is due for retirement and fast getting ready to exit the police apex position, we call on the APC- led Federal Government to consider an Igbo man for the position of the Inspector General of Police.
