The exclusion of Igbo from Bola Tinubu’s list of members for the transition committee has drawn criticism from the Ohanaeze Ndigbo sociocultural organization.
In addition to the first list from the transition committee that Tinubu gave to Boss Mustapha, Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Tinubu also forwarded a 13-man list.
The Southeast was noticed to be absent from the list provided to Mustapha.
Isiguzoro encouraged Tinubu to include Igbos at the federal level in an interview with Newsmen.
According to him: “Ndigbo will give total support to Tinubu and we are emphasizing that he should integrate the Southeast properly into the centre and ensure he creates a government of national unity.
“We are shocked that among the people enlisted by the president-elect that there was no Igbo person in the transition committee forwarded by Asiwaju.
“This portends danger. We want to believe that those who assisted Asiwaju made a great mistake.
“For such a mistake to come at this hour, it portends danger to the unity of the country.”
Isiguzoro also urged: “Tinubu must ensure that people from the opposition who were sacrificed, from the South, like Wike, Chimaroke Nnamani, Ikpeazu, Ortom, and Ugwanyi who paid the supreme price by ensuring a smooth transition of power from the North to the South should be integrated into the government of national unity.”
