Reacting to the news that the Federal Government have approved the monitoring of South-eastern frequencies, the acting secretary general of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Prince Uche Achi-Okpaga described it as a misplaced priority and wondered what monitoring a zone that is peaceful will achieve.
“What are they monitoring in the South East that is peaceful? Let them go and monitor in the North East and North West where Boko Haram and bandits are terrorizing the people, killing them on daily basis.
“Can they monitor the activities of herdsmen? Why the attention on a place that is peaceful? In any case, there is nothing wrong in monitoring but the problem is the sentiments attached to it. It is very unfortunate, everything is South East.
“Look at how they unleashed soldiers to the South East who are just collecting money from the people at checkpoints that scattered everywhere in the South East.
They are caught on camera and posted on social media every time. They have debased themselves. It is unfortunate. I ask again, what are they monitoring”, the secretary fumed.
