The Youth wing of Ohanaeze Ndigbo has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to carry every section of the country along in making appointments to positions in his administration.
The group which operates under the aegis of Ohanaeze Youth Council, OYC, said it is 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.
“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,” the youths said.
OYC also condemned the relocation of Boko Haram detainees to Aguata Prisons in Anambra state which it said, does not have 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.
