Buhari worse than IPOB, Arewa youths, out to kill Igbos – Senator Owie


A former Chief Whip of the Senate, Roland Owie, has accused President Muhammadu Buhari’s government of being worse than the groups that are issuing quit notices and counter-notices across the country.

Owie made the remark while citing the recent reorganization at the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), which was clearly skewed against employees from the South-eastern part of the country.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain said people of the South-east have observed a “systemic plan to strangulate” Igbos by the Buhari administration, insisting that it is evident in the recent appointments.

“It is regrettable that we blame IPOB, Arewa youths or Niger Delta youths for threats capable of disintegrating the country but the series of appointments made by this administration even up till now have shown that the administration is worse than those issuing ultimatum to the Igbo.

“We have observed a systematic plan to strangulate the South, particularly the South East in appointments, and it seems that this administration is not bothered at all which is sad.

“I want to appeal to President Buhari to know that this country belongs to all the ethnic groups, he should not create problem for the North where he comes from because no matter how he sees it, he would not have become President without the support of other ethnic groups,” he was quoted by Vanguard Newspaper.
