The Ohanaeze Ndigbo General Assembly Worldwide has also praised the decision of President Muhammadu Buhari regarding the appointment of new Service Chiefs.
This was contained in a statement issued by the Ohanaeze President-General, Onyeachonam Onuorah on Wednesday, January 27, in Awka, the Anambra State capital.
Onuorah stated that President Buhari performed excellently by yielding to the long-time expectations of Nigerians; for the change of the security architecture of the country.
The Ohanaeze chieftain also implored the new Service Chiefs to justify the confidence reposed in them; by taking up “this onerous task as well as daring challenges of insecurity in our country.”
The statement read in part, “There is no Igbo man among the newly appointed Service Chiefs. Those who claim that the newly appointed Chief of Defense Staff Maj Gen Leo Irabor is an Igbo man should tell us if Irabor is an Igbo name.
“As the Inspector General of Police is due for retirement and fast getting ready to exit the police apex position; we call on the APC- led Federal Government to consider an Igbo man for the position of the Inspector General of Police.
“If there is no Igbo man or woman qualified for the job of the IGP; promote the Igbos next in line in the Police Force to fit in.”
Meanwhile, the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) has issued a warning to the public; to also beware of a notice which says it is conducting a fresh recruitment exercise.
