Today's News: HURIWA Slams PMB For Referring To All Igbos As IPOB, Salihu Speaks On Igangan Attack


HURIWA slams President Muhammadu Buhari for referring to all Igbos as IPOB

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

HURIWA also claims President Buhari’s method of keeping mute and confining himself to the comfort of the villa appears to be the best option since his recent comments are divisive.

The rights group said the President must henceforth return to his old ways and speak less because, as HURIWA noted, his public speeches of late rather than give hope and faith in the unity of Nigeria, evoke old faultlines threatening to tear Nigeria apart.

He also alleged that members of Odua Peoples Congress (OPC) in a reprisal attack, killed eight Fulani men in Igangan and Elekokan near Igangan during the week.

He, however, called on both Oyo State and the federal government to probe the crisis and bring the perpetrators to book.
