The chairman of Anambra state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Basil Ejidike, has said the Ohanaeze-Ndigbo was not fair to President Muhammadu Buhari.
According to him, the original aim of the Igbo socio-cultural organization had been defeated long ago when the organisation derailed and deviated from its socio-cultural role to partisan politics.
Speaking with journalists in Awka, Anambra state, Ejidike said Ohanaeze’s venture into partisan politics would not augur well for the Igbo nation.
He urged the Ohanaeze-Ndigbo to be a neutral body and embrace all political parties equally.
“During the sixteen years of PDP’s administration, the Enugu-Onitsha expressway was impassable. Now Nnewi-Amichi-Uga road construction is going on. It is a federal road. You are also aware of the commissioning of Zik Mausoleum which we thought Jonathan would have done but failed. Buhari came, completed and commissioned it.
“The Second Niger Bridge before President Muhammadu Buhari came on board and was designed to be two lanes but Buhari came and made it three lanes on both sides making it six lanes altogether which will cover 11.5 kilometres from Asaba, Delta state to Onitsha in Anambra state,” he said.
The APC chieftain noted that the school feeding programme was another milestone recorded by the Buhari administration, coupled with other social welfare programmes intended to put smiles on the people.
However, Ejidike admonished President Buhari to build on the foundation he laid in his first term on security, agriculture, and jobs creation, among others.
