Ohanaeze Ndigbo has commended the Federal government for commemorating June 12 and making it a Democracy Day as well as a public Holiday.
The organization noted that nothing was too small to remember those who laid down their lives for Democracy.
It suggested that those responsible for the annulment should be placed in the NIGERIA HALL OF SHAME while those that suffered the effect should be in NIGERIA HALL OF FAME.
In a statement by its deputy spokesman, Chuks Ibegbu, Ohanaeze noted that some elements around late Chief M. K.O. Abiola worked against June 12 and colluded with the Abacha junta to truncate the swearing in of the winner of the June 12 election.
It, therefore, praised President Buhari for this remarkable recognition but advised him to be a true Democrat and shed his military baggage.
The group also congratulated the former Minister for Transportation, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi for his repentance and penitence over his shocking remarks recently that Ndigbo has no right to insist on the 2023 Presidency.
It lauded Amaechi for his most recent comment where he showed remorse for the statement credited to him.
He called on Ndigbo to forgive him and remove his name from the IGBO HALL OF SHAME and called on Igbo political elites not to make disparaging comments against their race no matter the situation as Northern or Western and even Niger Delta elites can never do such. [THE NATION]
