The Ohanaeze Ndigbo has reacted to President Muhammadu Buhari’s presidential broadcast
The Ohanaeze made his position known in Abakaliki, the Ebonyi state capital, through national publicity secretary, Prince Achi Okpaga.
On hate speeches, he stated that the APC were responsible for such, advising them to first purge themselves before accusing others.
“I join other well-meaning Nigerians in thanking God for the President’s miraculous recovery.
“It is however pertinent for the government to get on with business and start implementing the budget to the fullest.
“This administration has less than two years to prove its mettle, in all ramifications, to Nigerians.
“I am tempted to observe that the achievement the government is crediting to itself is a mere political choreography”, he said.
Meanwhile, Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, has said it is “hypocritical of President Muhammadu Buhari to believe in one Nigeria.”
MASSOB leader, Uchenna Madu said this while disagreeing with the President’s remark on the unity of Nigeria.
Buhari in his address to the nation, following his return from London, where he spent over 100-days had harped on the unity of Nigeria.
However, Madu, in a statement said: “We the people of Biafra can never be deceived by a man fully blooded with religious, ethnic sentimental and hatred against the people of Biafra.
“Buhari in his inner sense of reasoning believes that with his kinsmen occupying the military positions of service chiefs, including all the most senior military offices/positions, he will easily crush Biafra.
“Maybe with his intimidating tendencies over Igbo governors, National Assembly members, religious/opinion/ political leaders, he still thinks he can crush Biafra.”
