Igbos Now Slave In Nigeria

UMUAHIA — A prominent nonagenarian 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 littered all over Igbo land and he called on President Muhammadu Buhari to send a team of trusted 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 said. 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.

Eze Ogugua, who is the traditional ruler of Eziudo, Ezinihite, Mbaise, spoke weekend, in his home in Umuahia. According to him, NDDC has abandoned the Mbaise ring road and other projects in Imo and Abia State. “They [NDDC] abandoned all the projects in Igbo land, the Mbaise ring road, which is now a no-go area. Last two weeks, I went to Obehie area in Ukwa West council area, there is no road, no light, nothing to show that we are members of the NDDC”, the nonagenarian monarch lamented. “South East region has been neglected. We have no roads. We are now slaves in Nigeria. We cannot talk about Niger Delta Development Commission, that one has done nothing in Igboland. They hate Ndigbo. They have abandoned all their projects in Mbaise, in Imo and Abia States. “They are stepping on our fundamental rights. I urge President Buhari to send a team of his sincere aides to the South East to assess the infrastructural facilities in the area.

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 spell doom for Ndigbo.
