The socio-cultural group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, appears set to take legal steps to address what it describes as discriminatory attitude towards the South East and South South in federal appointments.

This was announced by the President General of the group, Chief Nnia Nwodo, who said that the zones have not been well represented in the Buhari administration.

He also applauded the bail granted the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, but criticised the conditions of the bail.

He said, “We have appointed a committee of Senior Advocates of Nigeria from Ohanaeze states to take the Federal Government to court over the discriminatory treatment that is given to the people of the South East and the South South.

“Ohanaeze on our own are doing the best to carry on. We particularly feel happy (that) following our persistent demands, the government has responded now by granting bail to Nnamdi Kanu.” (Channels TV)
