Igbo socio-cultural organization, Ohaneze Ndigbo, has said that President Muhammadu Buhari’s recent appointments show that he hates members of the tribe.

The comment was made by the Anambra State President of Ohaneze, Chris Eluemuno during an interview on the Anambra Broadcasting Service Television on Wednesday, July 29, 2015.

Eluemuno said, according to Vanguard:

“I said it during the campaigns that General Buhari does not like Igbo people and it is happening now with all the appointments he has so far made since he came into office on May 29, 2015. He appointed five service chiefs and there is no Igbo man, even though Igbo have qualified people to occupy the positions.”

“His party has completed the selection of principal officers in the national assembly and despite the fact that the speaker, Mr. Yakubu Dogara made case to apply the federal character in allocating the offices, the president jettisoned it through his intervention and left Igbo APC lawmakers out.”

“He also exhibited his vindictiveness during his recent visit to the United States of America, USA, when he travelled with only governors from his party, leaving out governors from the opposition parties.”

“He was also quoted as saying that he would favour those who voted for him and our position is that there is no way the president should expect all Nigerians to vote for him in the last presidential election. That statement contradicted Buhari’s earlier stand that he belonged to everybody and belonged to nobody.”

Eluemuno said further that Buhari has no reason to exclude Igbos as they have played prominent roles in the development of Nigeria.
