Pro-Igbo group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to ensure the inclusion of the South-East in the nation’s security council.

The group, in a statement on Monday, signed by its Secretary-General, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, disclosed that the move was the ‘best option’ for the president as it would fall in line with the tenets of Federal Character.

“Ohanaeze Ndigbo worldwide insists that it’s the prerogative and discretion of President Muhammadu Buhari to replace the late Lt. Gen. Ibrahim Attahiru, with any officer of his choice as the next chief of staff, but Mr President must focus on competence and nationalism in accordance with the tenets of Federal character, as the omission of Southeast in the security council fuels disintegration and is the tragic disappointment of this government.”

“We are not lobbying for a southeast officer as an alternate of late COAS  but we are drawing the attention of President Buhari to evaluate the privileges of being unpredictable and reversing the wrong suspicions that he is biased against southern Nigeria leading the Army.”

“Every geopolitical zone should be represented in the Security Council to boast national reintegration and restoration of confidence amongst other Nigerians, that Mr President” belongs to nobody but everyone”, the change of body language of President will energize every Nigerian to partake in the fight  against insurgency and insecurity challenges facing the country.”

“We are convinced that only a south-easterner breeds the magic wands to disassemble all the unpatriotic coalitions reaping the considerable budgetary allocation mapped out for security purposes by ” recycling insurgency”

“We are unmistakable that Northern cartels are the major beneficiaries of these insecurity challenges and rebellion, if President Buhari is determined to end up the insecurity challenges confronting the nation, he should break the spell and terrify those immoral elements pressurising him to undermine the south and re-appoint another northerner for COAS”, the statement read
