An Igbo organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has accused the Federal Government for deliberately inflicting the country with fuel scarcity in a bid to impoverish them, ground them who usually travel in multitude at Christmas time.
According to the organisation President, Chief John Nnia Nwodo, the current fuel scarcity has hampered the Igbo decent across the country from re-uniting and celebrating with their families during the Yuletide.
Nwodo, who noted that whatever wealth Igbo sons and daughters would be bringing home during Christmas would be halved by the the obvious effect of fuel shortage, advised Ndigbo to strive to ensure that they invest at home.
This is as the Catholic Archbishop of Owerri Ecclesiastical Province, His Grace, Dr. Anthony J. V. Obinna and the Bishop Diocese on the Niger, Rt. Rev Dr Owen Nwokolo, urged Ndigbo to use this period of Christmas to intensify their prayers for peace in the country.
The two reverred clerics also urged the Igbos to bring back their wealth to their homeland. The Ohanaeze President, Nwodo, also said in a Christmas message to the people that the period provided good opportunity for Ndigbo to pray more to God to send succour to alleviate their sufferings in the country.
Chief Nwodo alleged that knowing what Christmas means to Ndigbo, the Federal Government was very uncharitable to the people to allow fuel scarcity in the country during this yuletide. He said: “They know that at this period in the year, Ndigbo travel a lot to their homeland; that is when the government chose to close our airport; that is when it decided to allow scarcity of fuel. This is very unfair and insensitive.
“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 the obvious effect of fuel shortage and none for investment.”
The Ndigbo president warned that any deliberate policy to undermine the economy of Ndigbo would affect the entire country heavily. He urged Ndigbo not to allow the hardship occasioned by the anti people policy of this administration to affect them in ploughing some fractions of their wealth home.
