Apex Igbo socio cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo has disagreed with the Presidential spokesman Garba Shehu that Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Afenifere and Miyetti Allah group are on the same page or level.
In a statement by the deputy publicity secretary of the organisation, Chuks Ibegbu, Ohanaeze expressed shock at the comparison.
It noted that Afenifere and Ohanaeze can only be compared to Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) which is the Umbrella group in the North.
“Garba Shehu committed a grave sin by such comparison between Peace and Pieces. Ohanaeze and Afenifere represent Peace and Miyetti Allah pieces.
“It is like comparing the Vatican to Afghanistan. How can a group that encourages, supports, clap for and prod killers and terrorists be compared with Ohanaeze Ndigbo or Afenifere, ” queried Ibegbu.
Ibegbu insisted that Garba Shehu must render an apology to Ohanaeze and Afenifere for such verbal mismanagement.
He also advised that if herdsmen are to be given N100b, then IPOB, MASSOB, area boys, Niger Delta militants, Bakassi militants, Book Haram, Shittes and hoodlums in Nigeria should also be paid to fight insecurity in the country.
He finally advised the Election Petition tribunals in the country to live above board and not compromise judgements.
“On no account should election riggers be allowed to occupy public offices so the tribunals must protect Nigerians by ensuring election riggers lose at the tribunals.”
