Buhari transforming Southeast infrastructure quietly, says Ayogu Eze
All Progressives Congress (APC) 2019 Enugu State governorship candidate, Sen Ayogu Eze has said the infrastructure revolution going on in the Southeast would change the political narrative of the zone in 2023, insisting that President Muhammadu Buhari was transforming the region quietly.
Speaking at his Ozzi Ward, Umuida, Igboeze North Local Council, where he revalidated his party membership alongside his wife, Nkechi, he noted that several developmental projects that have come the way of the region since Buhari assumed office had seriously entrenched the party in the heart of average Igbo persons.
He stated that he was delighted that the President could transform the Southeast region without publicising it, stressing that such solid structures were needed for the survival of the region and country at large.
Eze stated that projects being carried out in the zone, such as the Akanu Ibiam International airport, Enugu, the ongoing 2nd Niger Bridge, rehabilitation of major highways in the zone and agricultural interventions, among others, that received pockets of promises from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) without action had boosted the morale of the people, underscoring that 2023 would be a different ball game.
Eze stated that APC would zone presidency to the Southeast in 2023, going by the assurances from the National Caretaker Committee chairman, as a way to fully integrate itself in the minds of the people and to change the political narrative.
Chairman, Southeast Registration and Revalidation Committee, Sen. Jonathan Zwingina said the exercise was constitutional and afforded those who had not registered the opportunity to do so.
He said that Chapter 9 of the party’s Constitution recommended periodic review in membership at least every six months.
He said with a recent Supreme Court pronouncement, civil servants were now free to join political parties of choice, urging those interested in the party to register.
