Ohanaeze tasks Buhari on more purposeful leadership, lauds fresh appointments
The apex Igbo Socio-Cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, yesterday, urged President Muhammadu Buhari to use the remaining 18 months in office to make far-reaching decisions that will affect the country positively.
It asked the president to address the crisis in the Southeast as a way of ensuring justice, equity and fair play, stressing that doing so will mark a turning point for the country.
In a statement issued by its National Publicity Secretary, Chief Alex Ogbonnia, it also commended the President for the appointment of senators Ifeanyi Ararume and Margaret Chuba Okadigbo as Chairman and member of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), adding that such appointments were required to right the wrongs in the country.
“Most people of the Southeast were delighted about the appointments and expressed the hope that this is the beginning of a new dawn.
“That the two appointments of the two Igbo came shortly after the Igbo stakeholders met with President Buhari in Owerri, Imo State on September 9, 2021, is a signal that his visit to the Southeast is yielding quick signs of benefits to the Southeast,” the statement reads.
The group pointed out that the President’s kind disposition was a source of motivation to Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide in its quest and aspirations for a peaceful and united Nigeria, reinforced by equity, justice and fairness.
It expressed the hope that the President would continue on the path of honour.
