National Coordinator, Chris Chukwubuzor Azuka in a statement issued in Kano Sunday, described the attack on Buhari as ‘misplaced aggression’.
The statement jointly signed with Deacon Kingsley Godwin said “this is the time to approach President Buhari with humility to rebuild trust, friendship and to pledge our loyalty to his government.”
It warned Igbos “to desist from building tower of isolation and antagonism, as being the antagonist to our neighbour would not do us no good”.
“The Igbo race is being hunted by its blind politics of hate, bitterness, isolation, greed over the years. But this is the time for the Ndigbo to engage in honest self-examination and soul searching,” he added.
The statement added that the challenge facing Igbo nation was that of leadership and therefore, called on its stakeholders to put their house in order for common good of the zone.
The Igbo group endorsed President Buhari’s war on corrupt leaders, urging him to continue with his efforts to recover stolen funds from those guilty of fraud.
