The general president of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, the head Nnia Nwodo, attacked President Muhammadu Buhari for refusing to implement the community report created by the All Progressives Congress, APC, in order to restructure the country.

The APC had established a restructuring committee led by the governor of the state of Kaduna, Nasir el-Rufai, and had prepared the report that had been accepted by the national leaders of the party.

Nwodo said the president was not faithful to his manifesto and added that (Buhari) is looking for his own personal interest.

Nwodo, speaking on Arise TV, said that the military carefully framed the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria against Ndigbo.

The general president of Ohanaeze Ndigbo stressed that the constitution was based on extreme discrimination and jaundice against the Igbo people.

“The military designed a constitution at the end of the war to contain the Igbo.

“We have the smallest number of local governments of all the six geopolitical zones; smallest number of representatives in the National Assembly; the smallest number of local government councils, two states in the North West of Nigeria have as much local governments as we have in the South East,” he said.

“The president has not been faithful to his manifesto. After he won the election, his party set up a committee on restructuring headed by Kaduna State Governor, Nasir el-Rufai and they made this report that which was accepted by the national leadership of his party,” he added.

“And when he faced interviewed by the press, he said that our problem was not structure but process.

“He swallowed his manifesto; he swallowed the decision of his national executive committee and he says we are looking for our personal interest. It’s rather the president that is looking for his own personal interest,” Nwodo stated.
