Ohaneze Ndigbo condemns Bulkachuwa’s hate speech against Igbo race
APEX pan-Igbo socio-cultural-political organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, has described the Chairman, Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs, Senator Adamu Bulkachuwa, as a bad representative of his people in the National Assembly.
It also called on Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, to “reprimand Bulkachuwa publicly as a deterrent to some others who do not understand their oath of office and allegiance to the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”
Ohanaeze Ndigbo, in a statement on Sunday, signed by the National Publicity Secretary, Alex Chiedozie Ogbonnia, condemned what it termed as “hate speech” against the Igbo nation by Bulkachuwa.
Bulkachuwa had allegedly said that Ndigbo in Nigeria deserve deaths and elimination because “the South-East harbours criminals, rebels and arsonists
Ohaneze Ndigbo also described Bulkachuwa’s statement as “caustic and inflammatory attacks against the entire people of the Southeast.”
The statement reads: “It is shocking and unbelievable that a senator and chairman of a strategic committee in the Senate, Foreign Affairs, could make such an incendiary attack against the Igbo people without any provocation whatsoever.
“The Igbo demand for the Presidency of Nigeria is within their rights under the laws of the land. They have not breached any section of the constitution by making such demands.
“It is, therefore, a gross gratuitous insult for Senator Bulkachuwa to rain such unguarded invectives against a major region in the country. I have tried to obtain some internet facts on Bulkachuwa, the only significant information on him is that on June 10, 2020, his constituents in Bauchi commenced a recall process on him; and no more”, he said.
“Ohanaeze Ndigbo condemns Bulkachuwa unreservedly for spewing such hate speech on a major Nigerian ethnic group. It is highly inconceivable that a senator and husband of a highly placed judicial officer, Justice Zainab Bulkachuwa, would harbour such evil wish for a significant section of Nigeria.
“This goes to show clearly the wicked mindset of some people in power who have no other objective but to turn the country into killing fields in the pursuit of hidden ethno-religious agenda. While Nigerians are united against the bandits that physically abduct, torture, maim and kill, worse harm is caused by incendiary rhetoric as espoused by the Bulkachuwas in high places.”
Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, therefore, demanded an “unreserved apology and restitution from Bulkachuwa for this unwarranted assault.”
