Tnubu’s official aspiration not established in value, equity, he has added to emergencies in Nigeria – Ohanaeze
However, the zenith Igbo socio-social association Ohanaeze Ndigbo depicted the assertion of Tinubu to challenge the Presidency in 2023 as contrary to the guidelines of normal equity as appalling.
It lamented that the previous Lagos State Governor had decided to add to the emergency of Nigeria as opposed to holding hands with loyalists to save the corporate presence of the country.
The representative for the Igbo pinnacle body, Chief Alex Ogbonnia, who addressed one of our journalists while responding to the Tinubu’s formal presentation, said, “It is a statement established in history and experience that any undertaking that isn’t upheld by equity and value won’t succeed.
Ogbonnia said Tinubu realized that he was doing some unacceptable thing, setting out on a venture that was not established in value, equity and reasonable play.
He said;“It is a venture that is dead on appearance. Since God is a general element that he is constantly intrigued by truth, decency and value. So for anyone leaving on whatever isn’t established in value and equity won’t succeed and this is a balancing power that has supported this world from the start.
“So Tinubu realizes that he is leaving on a reason that has no establishment in anything: establishment in value and equity, and obviously is an undertaking that won’t succeed.”
Ohanaeze representative, notwithstanding, said it was extremely appalling that Tinubu had chosen to add to the emergency in Nigeria, adding “on the grounds that there is this shared awareness that has been directing this country. The shared perspective is to socially figure out what is correct and what’s up and to seek after the one that is correct and disregard the one that isn’t right.
“Yet, no different either way, the individuals who have truly conflicted with the show has frequently lost, you know at a point General Sani Abacha needed to proceed yet he lost; Goodluck Jonathan ran against the current he lost whatever other individual that attempts to conflict with the show and the current will forever lose it. Mr Tinubu is working across purposes with the underpinnings of this nation – establishment established in value and equity.
“He realizes that this is the turn of the Igbo and on second thought of supporting for the Igbo to arise for harmony to rule, for the corporate presence of Nigeria to stay flawless, he chose adding to the issue and emergency. So for one to prevail as an issue of realities, loyalists ought to think about the aggregate interest – the gathering interest more than personal circumstance. Be that as it may, for this situation now Tinubu is more keen on personal circumstance. He considered personal responsibility above bunch interest or corporate presence of Nigeria. Furthermore that is self-centeredness at its tallness and any country that has such individuals is consistently in issue.
“Ohanaeze’s position is that Tinubu realizes that he is doing some unacceptable thing. He is leaving on an undertaking that isn’t established in value, equity and reasonable play, and is against the normal current of the soul of individuals and to that degree he will unquestionably lose.”
