He also called on the President to consistently communicate the reasons behind engaging in private visits to the Nigerian people.

His statement read:

Ohanaeze Ndigbo, the unwavering voice of the Igbo, finds it both intriguing and deeply unfortunate that President Tinubu chose a private visit to France.

“We hereby implore the President to dutifully fulfill his constitutional obligations by formally transmitting power to Vice President Kashim Shettima in his absence.

“Nigerians are already suffering immensely due to the escalating security challenges and the dire state of our economy, exacerbated by the crash of the naira in foreign exchange markets.

“The consequences of neglecting these pressing issues pose a severe risk, as the potential fallout could be nothing short of disastrous.

“President Tinubu should consistently communicate the reasons behind engaging in private visits to the Nigerian people.

“It is important to emphasize that Nigerians are deeply dissatisfied with the worsening state of security and the persistent decline in economic activities, pushing their patience to its limits.

“The President must not underestimate the resolve of the Nigerian people or take their grievances for granted.

“It is imperative that he expeditiously address the grave challenges of insecurity and economic turmoil in the first quarter of 2024, to avoid the potential eruption of citizen revolt akin to those witnessed in Venezuela and the Arab Spring in Nigeria.

“Ohanaeze Ndigbo fervently prays for President Tinubu to be endowed with divine wisdom in navigating these troubled times.

“We implore him to recognize the urgent need for proactively resolving the security and economic crises afflicting our nation, as the fate of Nigeria and the wellbeing of its citizens remain at stake.”
