Ohanaeze attacks Buhari over OIC meeting

The apex Igbo sociocultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has  slammed  President Muhammadu Buhari for attending a meeting of the Organisation of Islamic Countries  in Saudi Arabia less than 24 hours after his  swearing-in for a second- term.

In a  statement by its Deputy National Publicity Secretary, the group  said Buhari owed Nigerians an explanation.

Ohanaeze said, “Why immediate attendance of Organisation of Islamic Countries, OIC, meeting in Saudi Arabia a day after his swearing in. Mr President Buhari owes Nigerians that explanation.’’

Ohanaeze said, “This is a secular country and a leader that wants to be a mullah or fanatic is free to resign rather than plunge us into a religious crisis.”

The group  also attacked the Majority Leader of the  House of Representatives,  Femi Gbajabiamila, for  travelling to Saudi Arabia for lesser Hajj.

The statement said, “Femi Gbajabiamila, a born again Christian turned into Muslim  for political reasons is dangerous to our democracy.

“Although people have  a  right to change their religion, the sudden change from a Christian to a Muslim  and his umrah journey to Mecca just to be Speaker is a bad omen.

“Can we trust such a character who can change his faith for power sake?”
