Arthur Eze: Why Igbos should be eternally grateful to Buhari/

Billionaire oil magnate, Prince Arthur Eze, said Igbo should be eternally grateful to President Muhammadu Buhari over the strings of economic and infrastructural projects carried out by his administration in the south-east region.

In a statement issued through his spokesman, Oliver Okpala, the business mogul said the south-east region has benefitted more from the Buhari-led administration than successive governments in the country.

Buttressing his point, Eze said under the present administration, projects such as the Akanu Ibiam International Airport and the 2nd Niger Bridge have witnessed unprecedented attention.

He also cited the creation of zonal police headquarters (zone 13) at Ukpo Dunukofia in Anambra State, noting such projects were indicative of Buhari’s love for the people of the region.

The statement read: “President Mohammadu Buhari and the Inspector General of Police have demonstrated uncommon goodwill towards the people of the South-East geopolitical zone and should now rest assured of our unalloyed support and loyalty.

“The modernisation and uplifting of the Akanu Ibiam Airport to an international standard with modern runway and facilities that can compete favourably with any airport in any part of the world,   is another step worthy of commendation.

“The concern of the South-East zone in terms of security,  protection  of lives and property has been tackled head on by the President.

“Citing a new police zonal headquarters as zone 13 at Ukpo,  Dunukofia,  in the  Awka Capital Territory of Anambra State is a feat that has shown clearly that the President is man of the moment for the Igbo and the entire South-East.”
