A nonagenarian and prominent monarch, Eze Demond Ogugua has decried the position of Ndigbo in Nigeria today, lamenting that Ndigbo are now treated as slaves in their country.
According to Eze Ogugua, abandoned road projects are all over Igbo land and called on President Muhammadu Buhari to send a team of trust and sincere aides to Igbo land to see things for themselves.
He said that despite the contribution of Ndigbo in the development of Nigeria the “South East region has been neglected. We have no roads. We are now slaves in Nigeria”.
He particularly condemned the Niger Delta Development Commission which he said abandoned most of the projects in Abia and Imo States, which are members of the commission, saying it shows that Ndigbo are not regarded by the Government.
“We have suffered a lot, enough is enough, Buhari should order all the contractors on the abandoned projects to return back to sites and resume work on them”, Eze Ogugua said.
He also warned against dragging Ohaneze Ndigbo into politics, saying it would speed doom for Ndigbo.
