Amid tight security, President Buhari arrived Imo on Thursday wearing Igbo attire.

Following Buhari’s arrival, the streets, banks, schools were deserted by residents of the state.

On her Twitter page, she wrote:

“Buhari talked about the 1967 treatment sometime ago and today he got the 2021 treatment. With Buhari’s crave for attention, pomp and fanfare, the empty streets will hit him real hard.

“Sit At Home order is an effective weapon that can be deployed strategically and today it was!”

Aisha also mocked the president for his Igbo outfit which got Nigerians talking.

“If there is one thing Buhari is competent at doing and has competently done in his 6 years in office, it is modelling!

Count Ndigbo Out Of Buhari’s Jamboree Visit To Uzodinma – Ohanaeze Reveals » Naijaloaded

The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide, OYC, on Thursday berated Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State for linking Ndigbo to President Muhammadu Buhari’s visit to the State today.

Uzodinma had disclosed that Buhari would, apart from commissioning projects he completed in the State, meet with Igbo leaders and discuss issues affecting the zone.

But in a reaction, the President-General of OYC, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike, said Uzodinma’s claims were big slight on Ndigbo.

He said it was insulting that a private visit to Uzodinma’s Imo Government could gradually turn into a visit to Igboland by Buhari.

The enraged youth group said,

“We had wanted to hold our peace over the noise about President Buhari’s visit to Imo State but under the prevailing circumstances, we are compelled to set the record straight.

“We want to start by making it clear that President Muhammadu Buhari is not visiting Igboland today, but is rather coming to see Governor Hope Uzodinma on a private visit that has nothing to do with the good people of the Southeast.

“Having said that, it is also imperative to state that Ndigbo are not scheduled to meet with Buhari in Imo State to discuss any issue whatsoever. The reason is simple- at no point did Igbo leaders meet where a decision was taken for such a visit, let alone agreeing on issues to present to Buhari.

“Secondly, Uzodinma, who is number one enemy of Ndigbo, a man that has bluntly refused to protect our people, but is holding tenaciously to open grazing of cattle, is not and will never be a rallying point for Ndigbo.

“Having said this, he is on his own and is not in any way representing the interest of Ndigbo, but is merely receiving Buhari as his private guest, which he is entitled to.

“Any Igbo leader going there is not representing the interest of Ndigbo and we will regard such a person as an enemy of the people.

“What we will not tolerate is the habit of dragging Ndigbo into such a Jamboree. Ndigbo are not ass lickers, we are one of the three major tripods under which this country is standing and for that reason, we are not going to go cap in hand begging anyone for what is our due, including the 2023 presidency which is not negotiable.”

The youth group equally said it was not happy that the members of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, were popularizing Buhari’s visit by proclaiming sit-at-home in the entire Igboland.

“What is the essence of even contemplating a sit-at-home in the entire Igboland because Buhari is visiting Hope Uzodinma in Imo State? They have helped Gov. Uzodinma in giving the visit such a colouration that it is for the entire Igboland.

“If at all they must declare a sit-at-home, it should have been in Imo State because Buhari is not visiting Igboland. They should not make this kind of very costly mistake next time, it has given this visit undue popularity,”

Okwu added.

Buhari Is Callous, He Is Coming To Mock Imo People – PDP Alleges » Naijaloaded

Imo State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has faulted President Muhammadu Buhari’s planned visit to the State.

The State Publicity Secretary of PDP, Ogubundu Nwadike, said Buhari’s visit is a mockery on the people of the State.

Governor Hope Uzodinma had recently disclosed that the President would visit the state on Thursday.

Uzodinma said Buhari would commission significant projects during his official visit to the state.

However, Nwadike accused Buhari and Uzodinma of causing war in Imo State.

In a statement by Nwadike, he said:

“In recent months, Imo, once a land of peace, was forcibly turned into a theatre of war. Today, Imo knows no peace principally because the governor is on the warpath.

“Imo under Governor Hope Uzodinma is a police state. Basic freedoms of the people have been curtailed while an army of occupation reigns and rules in the land. The entire scenario leaves a bitter taste in the mouth.

“For us in PDP, the presidential visit is a deliberate ploy to mock the people of the state to their very face. This is callous and inhuman.”
