It Is Disgraceful For Igbo To Beg Buhari For Appointments – Ohaneze

Apex Igbo socio-cultural organization Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has described the decision of some Igbo people to beg the president-elect, Muhammadu Buhari for appointments in his government as a disgrace to the Igbo nation.

President of Ohaneze in Anambra State, Chief Chris Eluomunoh, who is also the chairman of Ohaneze State Presidents’ Forum for the seven Igbo-speaking states, said this at a news conference in Awka.

According to him, issues of federal appointments are constitutional obligations which every president of Nigeria, irrespective of the voting pattern of a people in an election, must obey.

“As far as the politics of Nigeria is concerned, General Buhari and the incoming APC government must involve the South East in the zonal arrangement,” said Eluomunoh.

“With Buhari as the president and the South West as the vice president, the next most important appointment, which is the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, must come from the South East. We don’t have to beg for it and so those who went to Buhari to beg for appointment on behalf of Igbo did not represent Igbo.”

He said that the Igbo nation was an integral part of Nigeria and must get their due share in the country. Therefore, appointing Igbo people into offices should not in any way be regarded as doing them any favours.

“It is a disgrace for any Igbo to be begging General Buhari for appointment, after all Buhari and others in the South West and members of his party had been in opposition for the past 16 years and they never begged Jonathan for appointment,” he said.
