Senator Uzodimma Hope has condemned the assertions of Governor Murtala Nyako that President Goodluck Jonathan was killing Northerners on purpose as a replication of murders carried out by Easterners in 1966.
Nyako had previously made these claims in a letter he wrote to 18 northern governors, stating that the President was deliberately murdering innocent Northerners and using terrorist sect Boko Haram as his cover-up.
Uzodimma expressed dismay that Nyako who is supposed to be protecting the interest of Nigerians irrespective of ethnicity, was trying to turn the nation against the Ndigbos by making such treasonable assertions. Governor Nyako had in his letter described Boko Haram as a ghost group which do not really exist, adding that President Jonathan was replicating the murder of Northern Political elites of 15, January, 1966; an activity which he claimed was carried out by Easterners.
The senator also called on Nyako to immediately make an open apology to the Ndigbo and the Federal Government for his actions, adding that henceforth, any harm that comes to the Easterners in the North will be blamed on him for his treacherous incitements of Northerners against them.
Uzodimma also condemned the actions of terrorist sect, Boko Haram, describing the slaughter of innocent citizens as a way of undoing what the government is trying achieve by it’s health reforms which seek to preserve and elongate God given life.
