Ohanaeze Ndigbo Blasts FG Over Continued ‘Discriminatory Cut Off Points’

by on March 13, 2018

Apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has lambasted the Federal Ministry of Education for continuing in alleged discriminatory cut off point in unity schools in Nigeria.

In a statement yesterday, the group alleged that under the guise of educationally disadvantaged areas, some states are unduly favored with very low cut off marks while others have unacceptably high cut off points.

The statement said: “For instance, whereas Abia State has 65 points for male and female, some states in the North have as low as 7 points for female and 10 points for male. This cannot continue. And funny enough, when products of this unjust system graduate, the same so-called educationally disadvantaged specie will get jobs and preferential treatment before his ‘advantage” colleague. This is robbing Peter to pay Paul. This is the highest degree of in-built terror against some people in Nigeria and it must stop. It has got to stop. This favoritism must stop if we want to continue as one nation.”

Ohanaeze Ndigbo also condemned the re-instatement and promotion of Ibrahim Othman , one of the masterminds of the APO six killing in 2006. “Othman was recently re-instated and is now an Assistant Inspector General of Police . This is a great insult to the sensibility of the victims and dependants of the deceased traders.

“There is no part of the world where this kind of callousness can happen and we call on the IG of Police and the Federal Government to reconsider the shameful act.

“We also call for investigation into the ownership of oil blocs in Nigeria to ensure it meets geographical spread. The DPR and NNPC should publish the ownership structure of oil blocs in Nigeria.

    There is no reason to cry, all we need do is authorize all the state owned Universities in the South East to admit any student that is interested to further his or education whether they score high or low, simple. We can also go further by compelling Federal Universities within our region to do same. Enough of complaining, you will agree with me that most of the Governors in the south east are nothing but empty brags especially that of Ebonyi state. He is always in the forefront of condemning our youths in order to be in the good book of Buhari, shame.

    the same federal government that promote hate policy is the one against hate speech.How would you expect the ten year old from abia state discriminated against at ten to be singing “love speech” at twenty?
    that is why nigerians remain the only citizens in whole world that dont love their country.What you sow is what you reap.The rulers (not leaders) sow hate and reap hate speech
