Amaechi In Trouble With Powerful Igbo Leaders, May Be Banned From The Entire South-East

The Apex Igbo Socio-Political Organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has on Saturday, lambasted the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, for saying that the South-East cannot produce President Muhammadu Buhari’s successor, in 2023.

The Deputy National Publicity Secretary of Ohanaeze, Chuks Ibegbu, in an interview, said that Amaechi is not God, and as such, he cannot decide the political future of the region.

Ibegbu described the Minister’s remark as disgraceful, and an affront on the people of the South-East.

Stressing that Igbo elites are fond of talking down the region, Ibegbu cautioned those affected, to desist from such act.

According to Ibegbu: “It is very unfortunate that an Igbo man of that calibre, could make such a statement in public; it is very bad.

“There is no Yoruba or Hausa man that would say his people would not produce President, for one reason or the other. Whether we voted for Buhari or not, it is not for Amaechi to make such statement.

“It is a very big affront on the political dignity of the Igbo people. Let me tell you, it is not for Amaechi to tell Igbos where to learn politically.

“He can advise, but it is a tragedy for him to go to the public to make such a statement. If he is not happy with the way Igbos voted, he should have kept it to himself, or advised them quietly. I am disappointed by that statement.

“Besides, Rotimi Amaechi is not God, to decide the political future of anybody, including the Igbos. It is a very disgraceful, unexpected of him, and besides, some Igbos voted for Buhari, just like some Hausas and Yorubas did. So, there is no essential tribalising the political scenario. It is not a tribal thing Atiku won in Oyo and Ondo States, and almost won Lagos State, so is it not Yorubas that voted for Atiku? In the North, Atiku made a very strong presence, so what will Amaechi say about the Yorubas and Hausas that voted for Atiku .

“This is very disgraceful, and many Igbo elites are fond of doing this, condemning their people publicly. It is very unfortunate.”
