Reno Omokri Urges Buhari To Consider An Igbo Man To Replace Late General Attahiru.
Nigerian human right activist and lawyer, Reno Omokri, has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to consider an Igbo man to replace Late Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Ibrahim Attahiru who died in an air crash last Friday, May 21.
This step, according to Reno, would aid in the end of the secessionist struggle.
Read his statement below:
”The best way to fight the rise of secessionists in the Southeast is not with guns, bullets and helicopter gunships. Give them development. Stop your nepotism. Be fair and balanced in your appointments. Consider an Igbo man to replace General Attahiru. Abandon the 97% versus 5% mentality.
Lose your Igbophobia.
Visit each Igbo state (Buhari has not visited Igboland since the 2019 election). Make Igbo monarchs pro-chancellors of federal universities in Northern Nigeria. Genuinely pursue an extra state for the Southeast in the Constitutional Reform process, so they are equal with other geopolitical zones. Encourage a major political party to consider an Igbo Presidential candidate. Embrace Igbos and Igbos will embrace Nigeria”.
