Why Igbos can’t protest against Tinubu – Minister


The Minister of Works, Dave Umahi, said that the Igbos have no reason to join other tribes to protest against President Bola Tinubu.

The former Ebonyi State Governor cleared the air while addressing newsmen at his Uburu hometown in Ohaozara Local Government Area of of the state.

He explained that President Bola Tinubu has solved major problems that faced South East including farmers/herders clash.

He added that any other issue the region might be facing would be self-inflicting.

“If you check very well, especially in the Southeast, you will know that we no longer have incessant farmers/herders clashes. So, why should we join the protest when the President has solved our major problem? The problem we now have in the Southeast is self-inflicted. That is the issue of unknown but known gunmen.

“So, if we are protesting, who are we protesting against? We are protesting against a President that has solved herders/farmers clashes. If you remove the issue of unknown gunmen, the Southeast will be completely safe and farmers can work. So, we can’t go and join anybody to protest,” he said.
