The apex Igbo socio-cultural group Ohanaeze Ndiigbo has stated that Nigeria yearns for quality leadership which will naturally bring peace and development.
Speaking during an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in commemoration of Nigeria’s 61st Independence anniversary, the Vice President of group Damian Okeke-Ogene said the leadership needs to address the high rate of insecurity in the country.
He asserted that ethnic inter-ethnic relationships among Nigerians have become worse under President Muhammadu Buhari when compared to previous presidents of his ethnic Fulani origin.
“Nigeria needs a leader who will accommodate all the ethic groups of the nation. During Shagari and YarAdua, we had relative peace, so Nigerians should pray for good leadership,” Mr Okeke-Oghene said.
President Muhammadu Buhari has been accused of his nepotistic appointment and approach towards leadership which has fuelled secessionist agitation from the Indigenous People of Biafra and the Yoruba Nation who clamours for a separate country.
