Buhari’s Exclusion of Igbos in Appointment of Service Chiefs Regrettable – Hon. Opiah

Member representing Ohaji/Egbema/Oguta/Oru West federal constituency of Imo State in the House of Representatives, Hon. Goodluck Nanah Opiah has described the appointment of Service Chiefs by President Muhammadu Buhari without a South-East indigene as regrettable.

Speaking with DAILY POST In Abuja, he said that the appointment of service chiefs was a good beginning of a new government with so much security challenges.

“It is good that Mr President has started with appointment of Service Chiefs, which is supposed to be an injection of fresh blood into the system, but to me security problems remain a major problem that requires contributions of all and it is quite regrettable that Igbos were not part of them”, he noted.

He, however, cautioned that in subsequent appointments, conscious effort should be made to appoint Igbo persons into the administration, while explaining that as a people they were entitled to vote for any candidate or political party of their choice, hence that should not be the basis for them to be carried along or not.

“Without being told, Igbo as a tribe have choice to vote for any candidate or political party of their choice so they should not be excluded on that basis”, he explained.

He also advised the government to put behind it the problem of election and move into governance where everyone should be carried along so as to work the talk that Mr President belong to no body and belongs to everybody.
