2nd Term Appointments: Ohanaeze youths demand SGF, Deputy Senate President for Igbos
Leadership of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide (ONYCW) has cautioned Igbo leaders against making divisive comments capable of destabilizing the unity of the country and portraying the tribal group in a bad light.
In a statement signed by the President, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, the group said it supported the zoning arrangement made by the All Progressives Congress, APC, with respect to the leadership of the incoming National Assembly.
He said, “We want to caution Igbo leaders to desist from making unguarded comments capable of affecting the unity of Nigeria.”
“We know President Buhari’s victory in the just concluded election has retired some Igbo leaders from active politics. It ended some political dynasties in the South East, and threw up fresh opportunities for the youths. That is why those people are making disparaging comments.
“We are watching those elders keenly and may have no option than to sanction them if they continue to use the name of Igbo nation to discredit the good works of the president towards the Southeast.
“We support that Senate President should go to North East and Speakership to South West or North Central.
“We only demand for the position of Secretary to the Government of the Federation and Deputy Senate President. We have eminent personalities qualified for both Jobs. We advise Our people in the House of Representatives to Support the decision of APC leadership.
“We commend the South East governors-elect, and hereby implore them to make youths to constitute over 50% of their cabinets and also urge them to ensure that the new salary structure is implemented at the state levels.”
