Ohanaeze, which condemned the northern leaders’ opposition to calls for the restructuring of Nigeria, insisted that “all sections of the country are joint and equal partners.” Addressing journalists after a National Executive Committee meeting at Ohanaeze Secretariat in Enugu, the President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief Nnia Nwodo, said northern leaders were acting as if Nigeria was their conquered territory. Ohanaeze was particularly miffed at the rejection of the recommendations of the 2014 constitutional conference by a group of northern leaders, led by Alhaji Bashir Dalhatu. “Some northern leaders, in their utterances, give the impression that our nation is their conquered territory. God forbid! “We should all be joint and equal partners in a common bid to build a united, virile and strong country. “Not too long ago, a group of northern leaders met in Abuja and through their spokesperson, Alhaji Bashir Dalhatu, made very strong views on the national discourse. “They first of …

Buhari should address Nigerians to douse tension – AIED

A non-governmental organization, Advocacy for Integrity and Economic Development (AIED), has implored President Muhammadu Buhari to address the nation in a live and interactive broadcast to douse tension across the country over the state of his health. In a statement signed by its Director of Research &Publicity, Comrade O’Seun John, the group stated that the request has become expedient in light of rumours and counter rumours ranging from incapacitation, disorientation and even death. According to AIED, the cacophony of defenses, which more than often have turned out to be false, is doing more harm than good to waning goodwill left in the Buhari’s administration. AIED said: “Today, the fragile fabric of peace and unity of our great country, Nigeria, is on the vestiges of ruin. The continuous non-appearance of President Muhammadu Buhari from sworn duties and the reports of cabal infiltration of the seat of power is not only worrisome but negates the tenets of democratic rule. “Fro…
