Buhari takes delight in ridiculing Ndigbo – Afenifere


The Apex-Yoruba socio-cultural organisation, Afenifere, has blasted President Muhammadu Buhari for his threats against the Igbo race.

The group said Buhari takes delight in ridiculing the Ndigbo which he used IPOB to represent.

Recall that Buhari had during his infamous interview with Arise TV on Thursday said that the, ‘”IPOB is just like a dot in a circle. Even if they want to exit, they will have no access to anywhere.

“And the way they are spread all over the country, having businesses and property, I don’t think IPOB knows what they are talking about.

“In any case, we say we’ll talk to them in the language that they understand. We’ll organise the police and the military to pursue them.”

Buhari also threatened to use the military and the police against the Igbo nation, adding that security agencies will pursue them.

Secretary General of Afenifere, Chief Sola Ebiseni noted in a statement that to Buhari, “the Igbo and their territory is just a dot in a circle of the map of Nigeria, which even if they secede could exit to nowhere since the elders and youths of the South-South had assured him of not being part of the secessionist agenda.

“He couldn’t have been reacting to the IPOB but the Igbos whom he said had businesses everywhere.

“His utterances were very unpresidential and in the mode of common expressions with some unidentifiable northern organisations.”
