SGF: Ohanaeze flays Buhari for refusing to appoint Igbo

The Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has criticised President Muhammadu Buhari for not appointing a South- easterner as the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF).
Buhari had on Monday named Boss Mustapha the new SGF to replace Babachir Lawal, who was sacked for corruption allegations.
Mustapha hails from Adamawa state in the North-east as Lawal.
The President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, John Nwodo, in a statement sent to Premium Times yesterday, frowned at the refusal of the president to appoint an Igbo to the position “even after the ruling party (APC) zoned the position to the region.”
The South-east region comprises Enugu, Anambra, Imo, Ebonyi and Abia.
Nwodo said the president’s action “has further denied the people of the region a strong place in the executive arm of the administration.”
