The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, yesterday, chided the Senate President, Ahmed Lawan, over his comment on the resolutions of southern governors on restructuring, describing the action as affirmative evidence that he (Lawan) is not a lover of true federalism.

Secretary-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo faction, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, who stated this in a statement in Abakaliki, said that Lawan’s inflammatory comments on restructuring had bestowed him as the most unpopular Senate President in the history of the Senate, who stood against collective liberties and yearnings of Nigerians to re-address the faulty system and structural imbalance of the country

He described the Senate President as a rubber stamp of the Presidency and a biased umpire that deserves to be impeached without further delay, stressing that Lawan and co-travellers were caught unawares by the call for a change of status quo, which North had benefited from the pains and shortchanged people of the South.

Isiguzoro noted that call for restructuring and the ban of open grazing were bitter pills for the North to swallow, and opposition against the southern governor’s resolutions.

The statement read: “Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide has described the recent mockery stance of the Senate President over the resolutions of southern governors as affirmative evidence that the “Senate President is a rubber stamp of the Presidency and biased umpire” and deserves to be impeached without further delay.

“Senator Ahmed Lawan has squandered the goodwill of Nigerians and ought to relinquish his position as President of the Senate and resign honourably for the nepotistic comments capable of creating disaffection among Nigerians.

“The Senate should save itself from a moral standpoint to get rid of ineptitude and rubber-stamp leadership, and replace Senator Lawan with a vibrant personality to revamp the independence of the Senate from being an appendage of the Presidency.”
