Pan-Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has requested an unconditional apology from human rights lawyer, Festus Keyamo.
While defending President Muhammadu Buhari on the composition of his appointments, which excluded the South-East region, Keyamo had insisted that the Ndigbo had the region had the biggest of Buhari’s appointments so far.
A statement was issued in reaction to this, by the National President of the Ohanaeze Youth Congress, Okechukwu Isiguzoro, in which Keyamo was described as “a desperate political sycophant who sees insulting the Ndigbo as the fastest way to get the attention of Buhari for consideration for a political appointment.”
“The likes of Keyamo will shamelessly deny obvious truths for selfish interest and political patronage.”
“Ordinarily, we would not like to take issues with the likes of Keyamo as doing so will dignify him but we only want to warn him against the dangers of fighting a whole tribe.
“It is a pity that a lawyer like Keyamo, who should know better, has decided to see nothing wrong with the deliberate exclusion of a whole geopolitical zone from the over 30 key political appointments so far made by Buhari since he came on board.”
