It is good to note that the trio Matawalle, Ribadu and Onoh are unrepentant and diehard supporters of Tinubu’s administration and this they have not hidden from public domain unlike others who are still sitting on the fence who are difficult to know where they stand.

Onoh stands out for hitting the NEF where it matters most that actually forced them to make a public statement renouncing their earlier position on Tinubu’s administration.

NEF in their reaction, bowed and denied that Tinubu has not done anything in the North to warrant his Second Term in office, this was after Dr. Josef Onoh took upon himself to itemize remarkable achievements and strategic appointments Tinubu made in the North at the expense of the Southeast.

Onoh expressed his reservations on the protests of NEF against alleged killings of cows in the southeast.
