The Director-General of Voice of Nigeria, VON, Osita Okechukwu, has stated that Ndigbo would learn from President Muhammadu Buhari’s trip to the United States of America.
Mr Okechukwu, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, said this when he spoke with reporters at the weekend during a reception for an APC chieftain, Emperor Baywood Ibe.
The politician also called on Igbos not to vote for any other Northerner, since President Buhari, according to him, will hand over to an Igbo man after his tenure.
He urged Ndigbo to vote for Mr Buhari, “Because before you pass exam, you must read. Any other person saying we should vote for another Northerner is deceiving you.
“Our son is in charge of the revival of the palm industry in Nigeria where the belt is in the South-East.
“The President will encourage Chief Ibe to revamp the industry and create jobs for the teeming unemployed youths in the South East zone. It is also a way of training our children in agriculture. We thank Mr President,” the VON DG said.
Mr Okechukwu recalled that under the immediate past administration of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, the South-East had the Secretary to Federal Government, SGF, Deputy Senate President, Ministers of Power and Finance and Chairmen of Senate and House of Representatives Committees on Works and yet, our roads in the South-East collapsed.
“Today, Buhari is working on Enugu-Onitsha expressway and Enugu-Port Harcourt, Enugu-Makurdi, Aba-Calabar, Second Niger Bridge etc. Buhari said soon, he would revamp Enugu coal. Buhari is doing agriculture, railway, road and power. Soon, the Eastern Corridor railway will soon be revamped.”
