Buhari visit: How history will judge South East Governors – VON-DG, Okechukwu

By - - [Politics ]

Ahead of the 2019 general elections, Mr. Osita Okechukwu, the Director General of Voice of Nigeria (VON) on Thursday hailed the South-East Governors for their wisdom and pragmatism, as evidenced in the meeting they held with President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday night.

In a statement he released in Enugu, Okechukwu also thanked the Secretary to Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha, who reminded Ndigbo at the occasion for the second time that Buhari’s victory presents the quickest route to Nigeria president of Igbo extraction in 2023.

According to the VON DG, “a bird in hand our elders admonished, is more than a thousand in the bush.”

Okechukwu said the visit would pay up in Buhari’s completion of the numerous ongoing critical infrastructure projects in Igboland. Especially, when those projects were abandoned since 1999.

The statement read in part: “One cannot forget Senators Ekweremadu, and Ngige in their entourage, Chiefs Chekwas Okorie, Emeka Okwuosa and all those who share the same popular view with the Zikist-Buharist-Movement (ZBM), that Ndigbo cannot put all our Eggs in one basket, as a Bird in hand is more than one thousand in the bush.

“In the fullness of time, history will be on the side of the South East Governors for their wisdom and pragmatism; aimed at Buhari’s completion of the 2nd Niger Bridge, Enugu-Onitsha, Enugu-Port Harcourt, Aba-Calabar, 9th Mile-Makurdi federal roads, Eastern Standard Gauge Railways, Enugu Coal and most importantly Nigeria president of Igbo extraction in 2023.”

“For the avoidance of doubt, one submits that Buhari is not going to single handedly make Ndigbo president, but voting for him will not only make his supporters nationwide to support us, but will reinforce the equity, and natural justice on the side of the South East, the only geopolitical zone in the southern belt that has not presided over Nigeria from the Aso Presidential Villa, Abuja,” the VON DG said.

He added that in the evaluation of the programmes of the Fulani Muslim brothers, in a two horse race – President Muhammadu Buhari of APC and Alhaji Atiku Abubakar of PDP – the former’s programmes are real, slow and steady while the later’s programmes seems idealistic.
