An Enugu monarch, the Ezeani II of Mmaku Kingdom, Awgu LGA of Enugu, Maduabuchi Nevobasi, has said the Igbo will always support the President, Major Gen (retd.) Muhammadu Buhari.
The monarch said this on Friday during his visit to the president’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina at the Presidential Villa. He said that Buhari had done a lot for the South East in the last six years, highlighting the different ongoing projects in the region.
The statement quoted him saying, “Look at the Second River Niger Bridge, which is going on at a frenetic pace. Enugu International Airport has a brand new runway and is now in use,”
“The Enugu-Port Harcourt Expressway, Onitsha-Enugu road, and many others are also things to point at in the region.
“We thank President Buhari for all he has done for Nigeria in six years. It has not been easy due to many challenges, particularly security, but the good work continues.”
The monarch also commended Buhari’s regime on its anti-corruption efforts since he assumed office, urging him not to relent.
