HURIWA slams Buhari for referring to all Igbos as IPOB

The Nigerian Human Rights Writers Association, HURIWA, has said that Muhammadu Buhari is not worthy to be called the President of Nigeria.

HURIWA also claims that President Buhari’s method of keeping quiet and confining himself to the comfort of the village appears to be the best option, as his recent comments are divisive.

The rights group said the president should go back to his old ways and speak less because, as HURIWA pointed out, his public speeches in recent times, instead of giving hope and faith in Nigeria’s unity, evoke old failures that threaten to smash Nigeria.

HURIWA, in a statement signed by its National Coordinator, Emmanuel Onwubiko, noted that Buhari’s speeches have become increasingly negative, bellicose, divisive and totally out of touch with the realities on the ground.

In addition, HURIWA criticized the president for showing a poor appreciation of the insecurity problems in the southeast during his interview with Arise Television on Thursday, when comparing the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, with the whole of the Igbo ethnic group (Ndigbo).

Buhari had said during the interview that ‘IPOB is like a dot in a circle. Even if they want to get out, they won’t have access to anywhere.

‘And the way they’re spread out across the country, having businesses and properties, I don’t think IPOB knows what they’re talking about.

In any case, we say that we will speak to them in the language they understand. We will organize the police and the army to persecute them ”.

Continuing, HURIWA said that it was totally unacceptable that a “country like Nigeria with millions of intellectuals of world reputation is ruled by a president like Muhammadu Buhari who clearly does not know that the Igbo ethnic bloc is distinctive and separate from the self-determination group known as the Peoples indigenous people of Biafra ”.

The group said that Buhari’s ignorance or willful forgetfulness about the fundamental conceptual gulf and the distinction between a group of young agitators with the entire IGBO RACE is unforgivable and dangerous.
