Tinubu transition committee: Omitting Igbo dangerous – Ohanaeze

Share this article

The Ohanaeze Ndigbo socio-cultural organisation has faulted the omission of Igbo from the transition committee list of the President-elect, Bola Tinubu.

Tinubu had forwarded a 13-man list, in addition to the earlier transition committee list sent to the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha.

It was observed that the Southeast was excluded from the list submitted to Mustapha.

Speaking with DAILY POST, Isiguzoro urged Tinubu to integrate Igbos at the federal level.
According to him: “Ndigbo will give total support to Tinubu and we are emphasizing that he should integrate the Southeast properly into the centre and ensure he creates a government of national unity.

“We are shocked that among the people enlisted by the president-elect that there was no Igbo person in the transition committee forwarded by Asiwaju.

“This portends danger. We want to believe that those who assisted Asiwaju made a great mistake.

“For such a mistake to come at this hour, it portends danger to the unity of the country.”

Isiguzoro also urged: “Tinubu must ensure that people from the opposition who were sacrificed, from the South, like Wike, Chimaroke Nnamani, Ikpeazu, Ortom, and Ugwanyi who paid the supreme price by ensuring a smooth transition of power from the North to the South should be integrated into the government of national unity.”
