Nnia Nwodo who is the immediate past President-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has expressed shock and disappointment at President Buhari for not appointing men or women of Igbo extraction as service chiefs.
Today, President Buhari bowed to pressure and replaced the service chiefs. The appointed new Service Chiefs include Major-General Leo Irabor, Chief of Defence Staff; Major-General I Attahiru, Chief of Army Staff; Rear Admiral AZ Gambo, Chief of Naval Staff; and Air-Vice Marshal IO Amao, Chief of Air Staff.
Reacting to the new appointments, Nwodo said the President has once again made Igbos feels like they are not fit to serve as service chiefs.
“Gen Buhari, thanks for making us in Igboland feel, once more, that we are not fit to head any of the Security services.” he said
