The Ohanaeze Ndigbo says the fuel crisis is an attempt by the current administration to “impoverish” the Igbo.

John Nwodo, president-general of Ohanaeze, said this in his Christmas message to Nigerians.

He alleged that the fuel scarcity was a deliberate attempt by the administration to ensure the Igbo expend their resources on its effects.

While describing the scarcity as “unfair and insensitive”, Nwodo urged the Igbo staying outside the south-east to “think home with their wealth”.

“They know that at this period in the year Ndigbo travel a lot to their homeland, that’s when the government chose to close our airport, that’s when they allow fuel shortage to take place, this is very unfair and insensitive,” the statement read.

“It’s a deliberate policy of impoverishing our people to ensure that whatever wealth our sons and daughters bring home during Christmas is expended on the obvious effect of fuel shortage and none for investment.

Nwodo also said policies by the government of President Muhammadu Buhari are usually against the interest of the Igbo.

While warning that deliberate attempts to undermine the economy of Ndigbo would affect the entire country, Nwodo urged south-easterners “not to be discouraged” with the current situation.

He added: “The proceeding events in the country especially as it relates to Ndigbo since this administration came to power underscores the imperatives for our people to think home with their wealth.”
