President-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Nnia Nwodo, has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of refusing to implement a restructuring report proposed by a committee of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Concise News recalls that the committee was led by Kaduna State Governor Nasir el-Rufai.
Speaking on Arise TV, Nwodo said the military carefully structured Nigeria’s 1999 Constitution against the Igbo.
He argued that the constitution was based on extreme discrimination and jaundiced against the Igbo people.
“The military designed a constitution at the end of the war to contain the Igbo,” Nwodo said.
“We have the smallest number of local governments of all the six geopolitical zones; smallest number of representatives in the National Assembly; the smallest number of local government councils, two states in the North West of Nigeria have as many local governments as we have in the South East.
“The president has not been faithful to his manifesto. After he won the election, his party set up a committee on restructuring headed by Kaduna State Governor, Nasir el-Rufai and they made this report that which was accepted by the national leadership of his party.
“And when he faced interviewed by the press, he said that our problem was not the structure but the process.
“He swallowed his manifesto; he swallowed the decision of his national executive committee and he says we are looking for our personal interest. It’s rather the president that is looking for his own personal interest.”
