The youth wing of pan-Igbo socio-political organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to complete Enugu International Airport, the second Niger Bridge and rehabilitate dilapidated federal roads in the South East zone.
In a chat with journalists in Aba, National President of the group which operates under the auspices of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council, OYC, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, also wanted the President to implement the decisions of the National Conference, including the creation of an additional state in the South East, to make it at par with others.
“We are appealing to President Muhammadu Buhari to complete Enugu International Airport to make it a true international airport which can compare with others across the globe.
‘’We also want him to complete the second Niger Bridge, rehabilitate federal roads in the South East zone and implement the decisions of the confab, particularly the creation of additional state in the South East.”
The group urged President Buhari to fulfill his campaign promise of fighting corruption and indiscipline, stressing that the two evils had caused severe hardship to Nigerians.
The youth group further appealed to the President to appoint Dr Ogbonnaya Onu as the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, former Rivers State governor, Rotimi Amaechi, as his Chief of Staff and Dr Chris Ngige as the Minister of Health, adding that the three men were patriots capable of helping Buhari to achieve his visions for the nation, if appointed.
