Former Senator who represented the Imo-East senatorial district, Samuel Anyanwu has blamed the South East leaders for the continued marginalization of Ndigbo in Nigeria. The lawmaker accused the leaders of being timid to speak out for the race. Saying that the Igbos have been marginalized in Nigeria and yet Igbo leaders are silent.
In a press statement signed by his media aide, Ikenna Onuoha, and made available to newsmen, Senator Samuel Anyanwu expressed worry that those expected to speak against the marginalization of the Igbos by President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration are rather making themselves willing tools in doing biddings of the President.
According to his words; “It is an act of cowardice, wickedness and disservice to our people that those expected to talk are shying away and hiding themselves under the current reality. They should cover their faces in shame that other zones are developing while their area is lagging behind. Until the leaders in the South East begin to speak in one voice, the zone will continue to remain underdeveloped,” Senator Samuel Anyanwu stated.
The statement of Senator Samuel Anyanwu further attributed the repeated agitations by some secessionist groups in the zone to the spate of political imbalance, humiliation and abandonment meted out to the zone by the current government and for that reason, they have decided to disintegrate from Nigeria and form their own independent state.
