North Is The Safest Place For Igbos- Ohanaeze

The Igbo apex socio-cultural group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has stated that northern Nigeria remains one of the safest places for Igbos to live in and do their businesses.

Naija News reports that this was made known on Friday by Ohanaeze chairman in the 19 northern states, Augustine Amaechi.

While admitting that there have been some clashes with host communities, Amaechi claimed that the region has accommodated Igbos beyond measures, saying that accounted for their prosperity.

APC, PDP Clash Over Buhari's UK Trip

The Peoples Democratic Party has welcomed the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), back to Nigeria from his medical tourism to the United Kingdom.

The PDP, in a statement, by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, on Friday, also faulted the statement by the ruling All Progressives Congress that Buhari had been “re-energised” after his medical treatment in London.

The opposition party said the statement by the APC was “a confirmation that Mr President had been incapable and lethargic, leading to the inefficiency, disorganisation and general misrule that have bedevilled his administration.”

I Employed More Christians Than Muslims- Pantomi

The Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr Isa Pantami, has denied any ties to terrorist groups or ethnic and religious bigotry, saying he employed more Christians than Muslims as his staff.

Pantami, a Muslim cleric, said he had never had issues with his Christian aides, friends and associates of many years.

“If I did not like Christians or I did not see them as my brothers and sisters, I would not have been working with them for so long. I employed more Christians than Muslims on my staff because I believe in merit and competence over ethnic or tribal sentiments.

“I have never condoned terrorism and I reject any affiliation to terror groups. I have long preached peaceful coexistence amongst people of every faith and ethnicity,” he stated.
