Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s aide on Drainage and Water Resources, Joe Igbokwe has criticised Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe for wearing a ‘Dot Nation’ T-shirt.
It would be recalled that in a recent interview, the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) had described the South East as a dot in a circle.
On Tuesday, the senate minority leader was pictured wearing the t-shirt.
On his Facebook page, Igbokwe shared photos of the Senator and wrote a piece titled; ‘When national security is threatened, human rights will be suspended -Supreme Court of Nigeria.’
In the piece, Igbokwe said, “Abaribe is in the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. He swore an oath to pay allegiance to the corporate existence of Nigeria as a political entity. Abaribe promised to be faithful, loyal and honest. To serve Nigeria with all his strength. To defend her unity and uphold her honour and glory. Look at this T-shirt very well . It bears Biafra flag and colour. This is deliberate attack on Nigeria.
“Abaribe as a Senator took Nnamdi Kanu on bail and today he cannot produce him. Today, I do not know how many young Igbo that died in confrontation with the Nigerian Armed Forces that went to South East to stop the killing of police officers, destruction of police formations, public institutions, and breaking of prison gates.
“Abaribe cannot sit in the Senate and still continue to fan the embers of disunity and war. It is counterproductive, totally unpatriotic and totally unacceptable. Abaribe should just (go) home and join Nnamdi Kanu.”
