The Ijaw National Congress, INC, has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of marginalizing the Niger Delta in key appointments made so far under the present regime, saying the development showed he was against the zone.
The congress also said the decision of the president to limit the ongoing probe to 2007 was a plot to rubbish former President Goodluck Jonathan and also showed selective persecution of its own people.
Acting President of INC, Mr. Charles Ambaiowei, who made this position known while addressing newsmen in Lagos, declared that Buhari’s appointments into key positions had showed a “brazen breach of federal character.”
Ambaiowei argued that “there is a growing concern among the Ijaw National Congress over the brazen breach of the principle of federal character in the appointments at the federal level. Even elected officers in the National Assembly as well as in the judiciary seem to have this colouration of northernization policy against the south,” he said.
