President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief Nnia Nwodo, has an axe to grind with President Muhammadu Buhari over the way he has been side-lining Ndigbo in the scheme of things in Nigeria.

Nwodo, who addressed the world after the first meeting of the Ohanaeze new National Executive since their inauguration, Thursday, in Enugu, noted that Buhari hates Ndigbo to the extent that since he became the president, two years ago, he hasn’t visited any part of Igbo land.

“No wonder, one year and eight months into his tenure as president he has not visited any Igbo state,” Nwodo lamented.

He catalogued how Buhari has under developed and showed his unmasked hatred for Ndigbo, saying his appointments have been skewed against them.

The former Minister of Information, lamented the way Buhari has kept Ndigbo at arm’s length because he perceived that they did not vote for him massively to become president.

Hear him: “What is very perturbing is the public declaration of Mr. President that his appointments must favour the states that voted overwhelmingly for him and those he trusts even against the provisions of our constitution relating to the federal character.

“One is at sea why Ndigbo, who campaigned and voted for him, appear not to be trusted.

“No wonder he defied the zoning structure of his party and appointed a non-Igbo man as Secretary to Government.

“No wonder the ministries with lean capital votes are the ones assigned to Ndigbo. No wonder he nominated Ambassadors for confirmation to the National Assembly naming three ambassadors for some states and only one ambassador for each of the Igbo states,” Nwodo pointed out.

Boiling with anger, Nwodo said he would seek audience with Mr. President over Igbo marginalisation and also talk about the issue of the pro-Biafra agitators who are often arrested, detained and some others killed out rightly because they were exercising their human right.

Distraught, Nwodo bemoaned that Buhari did not map out a single project for Ndigbo in the $29.9 billion 3 year External Borrowing plan he presented last year.

“To make matters worse on Tuesday, October 25, 2016, the President presented a $29.9 billion 3 year External Borrowing plan to the National Assembly which will potentially raise our total external debt to $41 Billion in three years and raise our debt GDP ratio from 13.2% to 20.7% without deeming it fit to allocate a single project in this external borrowing plan to the South East,” Nwodo fumed.
