Ohanaeze Ndigbo has raised alarm over what it called Nige­ria’s fast descent into the precipice under Muhamma­du Buhari presidency, warning that Buhari would only have himself to blame if the country eventually broke into pieces due to his crass nepotism.

The apex-Igbo socio-cultural organisation issued the timely warning over the weekend while reacting to the near exclusion of geopolitical zone from the key political offices un­der the Buhari administration. Of recent, criticisms have been prominent, mainly from geopolitical zone and their sympathisers over pow­er-sharing under the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), in which the zone points to its ex­clusion and marginalisation.

Reacting to the development in a statement, the president general of Ohanaeze, Chief Nnia Nwodo, warned that Buhari had left Nigeria totally broken with­out a future over the current structural imbalance in the po­litical spectrum of the country.

According to Nwodo, “there is no future for Nigeria. As long as the north decides to be un­reasonable and unrealistic, this country can never get better. The country is only as long as equity and fairness is denied some sections of the country. The only solution is restructuring or the country will eventually hit the rocks – if not today, tomorrow. What does it cost to be fair and live in peace?

On the impending of the country, Nwodo declared: “Certainly, nobody will blame anybody if emotion runs high and the thread holding the coun­try becomes thin and snaps.

He went further: “No condi­tion is permanent in life. There are ominous signs and the clouds are gathering. Let the remain­ing generation that witnessed the Nigerian civil war recant and save the country from the cataclysm that will envelop her if the upcoming generation are allowed to inherit the callous­ness and wickedness pervading the land now. Nigerians beware of civil war.”
