President Muhammadu Buhari: becoming the sweetheart of South-East leaders

President Muhammadu Buhari is worming his way into the hearts of leaders in the South-East zone of the country, even though he lost the vote in the five states to opposition candidate Atiku Abubakar in the February election.

Buhari’s love bait is the infrastructure improvement that he has recorded in four years, better than 16 years of the Peoples Democratic Party.

The president’s cheerleader is Chief Eze Nwachukwu, chairman of the Ebonyi state chapter of the All Progressives Congress.

Nwachukwu remarked on Friday that Buhari has represented a major departure compared with PDP presidents from 1999 till 2015.

“The major federal roads in South-East were abandoned for the 16 years of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) led administration. But it took Buhari and APC government less than four years to fix most of the roads”, Nwachukwu said.

He lauded Buhari for investing in the development of critical infrastructure in the South-East.

He said that it was not in doubt that Buhari and the APC-led government had improved physical infrastructure in the zone.

He cited the rehabilitation of the Enugu-Onitsha, Enugu-Port Harcourt and Enugu-Abakaliki Expressways.

Nwachukwu also commended Buhari over the ongoing renovation at the Akanu Ibiam International Airport in Enugu and the construction of the second Niger Bridge.

He, therefore, called on the zone to rally support for Buhari’s administration in appreciation of its efforts to transform the area.

The chairman said that it was gratifying to know that the federal government had refunded the state the money it spent in the rehabilitation and construction of flyovers on federal roads.

“Work is at an advanced level at the second Niger bridge used as political bait for the South-East by successive PDP governments courtesy of Buhari’s development programme in the zone.

“The FG has assured that work on the bridge will be completed and delivered by 2022 and the government is irrevocably committed to the promise.

“The Akanu Ibiam International Airport closed due to shabby construction work is currently undergoing renovation and will soon be opened for use.

“We use this platform to appeal to our people in the South-East to continue to support the president to steer the country to economic, political and social prosperity,” Nwachukwu said.

Nwachukwu also commended Buhari for approving the establishment of a Federal College of Education in Ebonyi.

He said that the gesture would address challenges faces in the training qualified teachers in the state.

  • This is a very simple & intelligent response, we need to all work together to salvage ourselves & build a new United Nigeria, let's be sincere & give government the credit for the good they've done & speak out whenever our rights have been tampered with. As citizen it's our responsibility to support the government of the day so it can succeed, we've got the right to support whomever we wish but as soon as elections are over we must support the government in power in moving the nation to new heights. Thank you.

    • It is always good to commend good works because our people are of the opinion that if you thank someone for a good deed, it will motivate him/her to do more good works.
      Therefore let Mr President continue his good works, people of good will are seeing and will definitely appreciate.

  • Stop giving Buhari accolades for doing his job! Nigerians have been so brainwashed into a hard life to the point that they think it's a privileged when their tax & proceeds from Nigerian communal resources are spent on them.

    I'm no way a Buhari's hater, though I think his IQ is very low, but he's doing what he signed up for. Give accolades when people have gone above & beyond which he hasn't.

    • So in a clime where leaders don't do what they sign for, should will not appreciate someone who has done pass other? Someone did some good things in 4 years better than those who have occupied similar position for 16 years and you are saying we should not appreciate? Aba!!!

  • What about Aba-ikot ekpene road? It is over 20 years a beautiful highway I grew up to see in early 90's was left as bush. Baba should make investigation on why the road has been abandoned. Truly we could not get all we wanted in PDP's regime but that's why the people opted for APC to make a true change, not a pay back. God is watching everyone.

  • Buhari can use Nwachukwu to spread his propaganda as much as he likes, the truth is, the people of south east are not naive. They know when they are being lied to and never fail to deliver the right verdict during elections. That is why despite the massive propaganda and rigging of the last election by APC they could not win a single state in the south east. Buhari could not give a damn for the people of the south east and, sad to say that on the part of the south easterners, the feeling is mutual. The south east cannot wait to exit Nigeria.

  • If they fixed the road, it's to make it easier for the herdsmen to easily get to their planned destinations. Don't be fooled. Nothing goes for nothing
