Buhari has again shown his hatred for Igbos in NNPC appointment – Ohaneze


The apex Igbo sociopolitical organisation, the Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has again accused President Muhammadu Buhari of being bias in his appointments.

Ohaneze cited the recent reorganisation at the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, saying that the Southeast has again been sidelined.

According to Ohanaeze, this is exactly why youths in the region are no longer comfortable being called Nigerians.

The Ohaneze’s position was part of a statement signed by its President General, Chief John Nwodo in Abuja on Sunday.

Nwodo said, “Ohaneze is appalled at the consistent and unrepentant disposition of disdain for the South-East by Buhari administration as copiously displayed in the recent reorganisation at the NNPC.

“Ohaneze had thought that after the President’s declaration in a broadcast recently that Nigeria unity had been settled and not negotiable, that he would take all necessary actions in his governance to achieve it, but the recent NNPC shake-up has not shown that the administration is walking its talk.

“Buhari administration, has shown in the new managers just announced tilting clearly in favour of the North, with the South-East totally ignored, as has always been the case since Buhari administration came to office.

“This brazen disregard, marginalization and non-compliance with the Federal character provisions in our constitution are the causes of lack of confidence which our youths have in our present governance structure.

“As long as President Buhari continues to live out his speech abroad that his government will favour those who voted 97 per cent for him against those who voted 5 % for him so long will the dissatisfaction and unrest in our polity subsist.”

Scary News About Your Cellphone

The war rages on about the safety of cell phones.  One side argues there’s either nothing to fear, while the other warns that your phone is causes grave harm when it comes into close contact with your body. Citing the views of other experts Dr Joseph Mercola tries to show where the real truth lies.

The year 2014 marked the first time in history that there were officially more mobile devices than people in the world – approximately 7.2 billion.

Although significantly lower, the number of cell phone users is forecast to reach 4.77 billion by the year 2017.

That’s a lot of cell phones and cell phone users. But what’s even more fascinating about all these mobile devices is the behaviour that surrounds them: The average cellphone owner checks their phone 110 times a day, or about nine times each hour; and 46 percent of smartphone owners say “they couldn’t live without” their phones
