The Ohanaeze Ndigbo socio-cultural organization, has lamented the appointment of only five ministers from the South-East region by President Bola Tinubu.
Ohanaeze President-General, Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu, said giving only five slots to the South-East was unfair and unjust.
In a statement on Thursday, Iwuanyanwu said while other States have a minimum of six States, the South-East has five States.
According to Iwuanyanwu, Ohanaeze is now demanding “justice, fairness and equity for every ethnic group in Nigeria, including the Igbo.
“Recall that the states and geopolitical zones were created by the military administrations. All honest Nigerians know that the Igbo did not play much part during this exercise.
“As a result, the South-East was shortchanged with five (5) States while other zones have a minimum of six (6) states. This situation has placed the South-East in a very difficult position, politically, economically, and socially.
“Our political power has been reduced as we have a few senators and also in the House of Representatives; governors, house of assembly and local governments.
