Former Presidential aide, Reno Omokri, has advised President Buhari to consider appointing an Igbo military officers to replace the late Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Ibrahim Attahiru, who died in a military air crash on Friday, May 21.
According to Reno, he believes this move will help stop the fight of secessionists.
“The best way to fight the rise of secessionists in the South East is not with guns, bullets and the helicopter gunships. Give them development. Stop your nepotism. Be fair, and balanced in your appointments. Consider an Igbo man to replace General Attahiru. Abandon the 9% versus 5% mentality.
Lose your Igbophobia
Visit each Igbo State (Buhari has not visited Igboland since the 2019 election). Make Igbo monarchs pro Chancellor’s of federal Universities in Northern Nigeria. Genuinely pursue an extra state for the South East in the Constitutional Reform process, so they are equal with other geopolitical zones. Encourage a major political party to consider an Igbo Presidential candidate. Embrace Igbos and Igbos will embrace Nigeria”.
