The apex-Igbo Socio-Cultural Organisation, Ohaneze Ndigbo, has been criticised by an elder statesman and former member of the group, Ozo Chief Mike Emeke Nwogbo, branding those leading the Igbo group today as self centered.
Speaking with reporters at the weekend in Awka, the septuagenarian, who does not belong to any political party, further advised that all the federal roads in the country be commercialised by giving them to the multinational companies for effective management.
According to him, “Ohaneze Ndigbo members are working for their pockets; they are not working for the people they claim to represent.”
“What we have today in Ohaneze are people who are selfish like the politicians and that is why things are not working in Igbo land. Look at the federal roads in the South East, yet, we claim we have such group and representatives,” he said
“The few roads that are standard today in the South East are those built by Petroleum Trust Fund (PTF) when Buhari was its chairman many years ago, but all the roads, built by our so-called governors in the last three years have collapsed; it is a shame.”
“I suggest that all the roads in the country be commercialised, while 10 year maintenance agreements while will be built in every contract given to any contractor for solid roads to be built.” The Nation
