Ndigbo now slaves in Nigeria – Monarch

A nonagenarian and prominent monarch, Eze Demond Ogugua, has decried the position of Ndigbo in Nigeria today, lamenting that Ndigbo are now treated as slaves in their country.

According to Eze Ogugua, abandoned road projects are all over Igbo land and called on President Muhammadu Buhari to send a team of trust and sincere aides to Igbo land to see things for themselves.

He said that despite the contribution of Ndigbo in the development of Nigeria the “South East region has been neglected. We have no roads. We are now slaves in Nigeria”.

He particularly condemned the Niger Delta Development Commission which he said abandoned most of the projects in Abia and Imo States, which are members of the commission, saying it shows that Ndigbo are not regarded by the Government.

“We have suffered a lot, enough is enough, Buhari should order all the contractors on the abandoned projects to return back to sites and resume work on them”, Eze Ogugua said.

He also warned against dragging Ohaneze Ndigbo into politics, saying it would speed doom for Ndigbo.



  1. Igbos are slaves since after the civil war. If there is any government in power that can balance it, not from Buhari administration.

  2. Eze Desmond it seems you are seeking for political relevance, sorry you are too late because the true and virtuous Igbos are vehemently seeking internationally for a referendum not road contracts. You are nothing but a political job seeker please go to Buhari with you begging-plate-in-hand but don’t ever insult Igbo nation again as you just did with this your chameleon exhibition.

  3. Has anyone asked why government after government at the centre has continued to abandon the southeast. All that the southeast elites has been after is political appointments. They will vote ye to the national budget each year without asking how many road projects or industries are earmarked for the southeast. They are also not vocal through oversight functions.

  4. Buhari has brought in the old system of divide and rule of military. For Hausa man to continue ruling this nation, Yurobas and Ibos will neve find a meeting point. Change is the game.
