Ohaneze Youths Protest Buhari’s Lopsided Appointment, Boko Haram Suspects’ Relocation

The Youth wing of Ohanaeze Ndigbo has expressed
disaffection over appointments made so far by
President Muhammadu Buhari-led government.
The group, which operates under the aegis of
Ohanaeze Youth Council, OYC, therefore, called
on the President to carry every section of the
country along in making appointments.

The OYC said it was peeved by what it described
as some sectional appointments so far made by
the President, stressing that appointments should
be spread among the six geo- political zones of
the country.

In a statement signed by the National President
of OYC, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, the group
further said it is against the principle of
federalism for the President to have so far
appointed people from only one part of the
country.

He said, “We are worried at the manner of
appointment s so far made by President
Muhammadu Buhari which has so far been
concentrated in the North West zone, except for
the Special Adviser on Media. We wish to remind
our President that there are well qualified and
trustworthy Nigerians in every geo political zone.
We hope President Buhari is not acting out a
script.

“The earlier he allays fears of other Nigerians
about the manner of appointments, the better for
the nation. Ohanaeze Youths recall that the
concentration of appointments in one political
zone has always caused trouble in Nigeria. We
want President Buhari to live by his words that
he belongs to everybody”.

OYC also condemned the relocation of Boko
Haram detainees to Aguata Prisons in Anambra
state which it said lacked the capacity and
facilities to keep such high profile detainees and
urged the federal government to relocate the
detainees from the prison or upgrade its
facilities.
