The President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief John Nwodo, has accused the Federal Government of deliberately using the fuel scarcity to impoverish Igbo people.
Nwodo advised Igbo indigenes to use the Christmas period to pray for peace in the country and not to “forget to bring back their wealth to their homeland.”
He said, “They (FG) know that at this period in the year, Ndigbo people travel a lot to their homeland. 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 fuel, leaving none for investment. The unfolding events in the country, especially as it relates to Ndigbo, since this administration came to power, underscores the imperatives for our people to think about home in their wealth generation,” Nwodo added.
