President Muhammadu Buhari’s new year message continues to generate reactions – APC chieftain, Chief Nduka Anyanwu, described it as a message of hope and unity for all Nigerians – The APC chieftain called on all Nigerians to supportive of the current administration A chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and ex-officio member of the party, Chief Nduka Anyanwu has commended President Muhammadu Buhari on his New Year letter to Nigerians, describing it as a message of hope and unity for all Nigerians. Chief Nduka specifically commended the president on his stance regarding the 2023 election despite speculations in some quarters.
Speaking during an emergency meeting of Ohandigbo Youths Organisation (OYO) held in his home town Ossah in Umuahia, Abia state on Thursday, January 2, Chief Anyanwu popularly known as ‘the Buharist,’ called on all Nigerians to key into the vision of the president for a new and better Nigeria.
In a communique made available to journalists in Abuja after the meeting, Chief Anyanwu said “let me take this time to disappoint all doubting Thomases who are spreading false rumours that President Buhari is nursing a third term agenda by 2023. They have heard from him and so they should wait.” He explained that “the character of Mr President is one that is unequalled in terms of sincerity and commitment to serve Nigeria.” Describing President Buhari as the father of the nation, the APC chieftain called on all Nigerians to supportive of the current administration and embrace the message of hope of Mr President. He also enumerated various achievements of President Buhari and stated that the fight against corruption and insecurity, economic reengineering, job creation, power generation, improvement of infrastructural development and national cohesion among others top the achievements of the APC-led federal government.
Decrying the state of decay in Abia state, the APC chieftain expressed disbelief that despite the huge resources the state generates internally and those that come through the federation account, the governor of the state Dr Okezie Ikpeazu has not been able to justify it. “The poverty level in Abia state is increasing daily while basic infrastructures are as good as dead,” he lamented.
