MasterwebNews 29/11/16 - On Buhari`s second-term plan and Ohaneze Ndigbo executive meeting in Enugu

[ Masterweb Reports: C. K. Ekeke reports ] - If Buhari’s second-term plan, which his wife Aisha hinted us a month ago during her interview with BBC Hausa news and which some selfish cabals are seriously working on to impose Buhari again on Nigeria was tabled during Ohaneze Ndigbo Executive meeting held in Enugu recently; Ohanaeze leaders, youths at war over 2019 Buhari Presidency; I must ask: who has bewitched Ohaneze Ndigbo? Are these people truly Igbos?  Do they have eyes to see, ears to hear and any intellect to reflect on what is happening to them since the amalgamation of Nigeria. 

Ohaneze Ndigbo and their Youth Wing did not talk about the massacre of Biafran youths, the rampaging of villages and framers by Fulani herdsmen, the heading of a 60-year Igbo woman in Kano and all the five be-headers were acquitted by the judge, the kidnapping of young Igbo girls being married off in the North, the destruction and strangulation of Igbo businesses in Nigeria – among other political and economic atrocities against the region.  
 
They say Igbo people are doing well all over Nigeria – I ask: where and in which Nigeria when millions of Igbo youths are jobless and graduates are traders, taxi drivers, and bus conductors; thousands are fleeing Nigeria on daily basis and millions already on exile.

I do not have better words to describe the insanity and stupidity of Ohaneze Ndigbo than to use the words of Jesus to his Jewish brethren – especially the religious and political leaders of his day (Pharisees and Sadducees).  
 
Jesus described them as:

Snakes, brood of vipers, hypocrites, blind fools, full of greed and self-indulgence, whitewashed tombs – who look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of dead men’s bones and everything unclean, who kill their true prophets while neglecting the more important matters of the law – justice, mercy and faithfulness (Matthew 23:13-39). 

I believe Jesus’ deep disappointment and angry words aptly and correctly describe the Ohaneze Ndigbo today.  
 
Regarding the prickly issue of Buhari’s second-term in office; how can any Nigerian with any sensibility even support this failed ruler again?  In his 2-year presidency, he has destroyed Nigeria’s fledgling democracy and ruined the economy.

According to Bloomberg today, Nigeria’s economy is depressed – that’s deep recession with high inflation.  Buhari’s myopic monetary policy has killed Naira and forced hundreds of companies out of business.  Today, many foreign businesses and investors are divesting their capital expenditure and investing elsewhere out the country.

Famine, hunger and starvation are everywhere and cost of goods and services have skyrocketed.  In fact, the Senate said recently that the President has no plans to get the economy out its current deep recession. Suicides are on the rise due to debt and inability for many to provide for families.  Crime, corruption and immorality have rapidly increased.  Under-age Igbo girls are now married off to Alhajis and Northern men for survival.

Additionally, Buhari has sharply divided Nigeria with his lopsided appointments and ethnic hatred toward Igbo people.  The man lacks basic skills of democratic leadership and governance.  He lacks the ability to galvanize the nation with no sense of national cohesion and inclusiveness at all. 

He has also bastardized the judiciary and legislative arms of government.  Government repression is rampant – with no free press and media freedom any more.  Free speech is under assault and people are being arrested, tortured and even killed for criticizing the Pr
