On Sunday, the Coalition of North-Central Youth in Politics (CNYP) berated South eastern leaders under the aegis of Ohanaeze Ndigbo for asking President Muhammadu Buhari to give the slot of Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) to the area.
This was contained in a communique authorized by Alhassan Mohammed, the Convener and Hon. Aliyu Musa, the Secretary, after an emergency meeting in Abuja.
The group stated: “It is not news that Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) was not just endorsed by this group of Igbos but posted a stellar performance in the South eastern states, recording 85 per cent votes in Enugu, Ebonyi, Abia and Anambra States.
“This clearly shows that the Ibo rejected the progressives path, thereby pitching tent with the old order.”
CNYP said it was laughable that the Igbo want to harvest where they did not sow, asking that: “Are Ohanaeze playing the role of the Baboon in the popular Nigeria adage of Monkey de work Baboon de chop?”
“In the election that returned President Buhari as winner, North West produced the highest number of votes. The region is followed by North East.
“Today, the northeastern region has been compensated with the office of President of Senate and the Southwest which came fouth in Votes for the APC have also been compensated with the office of the Speaker in addition to the position of the Vice President”.
The statement included that North-Central zone which came 3rd in regards to votes for the party ought to be considered for the Office of the Secretary to the Federation.
