Igbo Community In Abuja Demands An Appollogy From FCT Minister, Wike Over Derogatory Comments Against Tribe

The Chairman, Igbo Community Assembly, Apo in Abuja, Honorable Ositadinma Patrick Nwoye has called on the FCT Minister, Mr. Nyesom Wike to immediately apologize to the Igbos over alleged derogatory comments against

the tribe during the demolition of an Estate belonging to Prince Nicholas Chukwujekwu Ukachukwu in the Territory.

The Assembly also gave Mr. Nyesom Wike Seven(7) days ultimatum to issue a public apology to the Igbos or face the wrath of all Igbos and the gods of Igbo land.

Addressing newsmen in Abuja, Honorable Nwoye pointed out that Mr. Wike allegedly stated “why should an Igbo man be given such massive land and there and that he has dealt with Igbos in Port Harcourt that he will do same here in Abuja”.

He stressed that such negative comments was not in the best interest of the Country where there is an urgent need for peace and unity.

“It has come to our notice about the alleged derogatory statement of Hon Minister of Federal Capital Territory Bar Nyesome Ezenwo Wike when he went to demolish the property of one of our Illustrous Sons in person of Hon. Evangelist Prince Nicholas Chukwujekwu Ukachukwu (MHR).
Such derogatory statement is totally uncalled for and should not be swept under the carpet. Because we the Igbos are not commoners in this country Nigeria and the world at large. Which is why we have to address this world Press Conference to keep the records straight”.

“Wike should apologise to the Igbos for using the alleged derogating language.
That “why should an Igbo man be given such massive land and there and that he has dealt with Igbos in Port Harcourt that he will do same here in Abuja.
We want to remind him that Abuja is not Port Harcourt”.

On the demolition, Honorable Nwoye said that there was a court order stopping such demolition which the FCT Minister had violated.

“We also want to ask Bar Nyesom Ezenwo Wike other fundamental questions on the said Asokoro land matter.
Question No. 1. Was there a court order restraining the demolition?
Question No. 2 If there was, why was it not obeyed”?

He also alleged that Mr. Wike stated that Judges were selling court orders and insisted that he should apologize to the judiciary especially with the fact that he is a lawyer.

“More importantly Bar Nyesom Wike a lawyer is now telling Nigerians that judges are now selling court orders hmm
In a country where Nigerians relied on the judiciary in the last election.
Bar Nyesom Wike should as a matter of urgency apologise to the judiciary.
Nigerians are fully aware that Bar. Nyesom Ezenwo Wike is one of the highest beneficiary of Judiciary in Nigeria”.

Honorable Nwoye presented copies of Ministerial approvals for the Asokoro Estate as well as copies of the court order preventing the demolition of the Estate.

“He told Nigerians that their was no ministerial approvals for the said Asokoro land but with me here is a copy of the Miniterial approvals. He (Wike) is lying.
We also have copies of the court orders.
We also have copies of proof of service to show that he was duly served”.

The Group described Mr. Wike’s action as mere intimidation, hatred and envy for the Igbos and called on President Bola Tinubu to call the Minister to order.
