Apex Igbo group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide has called on South-East Governors to do more in representing the interests of the people of the South-East geopolitical zone.
The group also asked the governors to tell President Muhammadu Buhari the truth about the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.
In a statement issued on Wednesday and signed by its Secretary-General, Okechukwu Isiguzoro, the group said the governors are being ‘remote-controlled’ in the scheme of things outside their states.
The statement partly read, “Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide laments on the ineptitude of the southeast political leaders to show bravery, heroism, and political will to voice the truth to President Muhammadu Buhari on where he is not getting it right as the southeast remains the adversities and calamitous impediments that had befallen the IGBO.
“Ndigbo are cognizant of the fact that Abuja holds the remote controls of most actions of the southeast politicians, southeast Governors are reluctant to make sacrifices for the southeast, they are inclined to trade off the Igbo’s interests for Abuja’s enticements and inducements, in compensation for doing Abuja’s bidding and interests in the East.”
