With President Muhammadu Buhari’s approval to construct a new International Airport in Ebonyi State, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide, Friday advised the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, and other Igbo critics to stop criticising the administration, urging them to support Buhari and the South East governors for the region to achieve more development.

Disclosing this in a statement sent to Vanguard, Mazi okechukwu isiguzoro, the President General of the group, commended the harmonious relationship existing between the Presidency and South East Governors, noting that the region is still expecting more dividends of democracy.

Isiguzoro however warned Ndigbo not to be quick in casting aspersions on the existing relationship between Igbo governors and Presidency.

The statement reads thus, “The approval of Ebonyi International Airport by the Presidency through the Ministry of Aviation led by Senator Hadi Abubakar, by the request of the Ebonyi State Government, is a demonstration of a rare Igbo spirit exhibited by the courageous Governor Umahi.

“This project will help to develop the Old Eastern Region and revamp the economy. It is an eloquent testimony that President Muhammadu Buhari means well for the South East contrary to what some critics like IPOB thinks.

“We urge Buhari to approve more developmental projects for the zone as a prompt response to critics that South East will gain more from him.

“We equally urged other South East Governors to submit more requests for developmental projects for Buhari’s approval.

“We believe that Governor Okezie Ikpeazu and Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi should request for the approval of the Construction of inland Dry Sea Port in Owerrinta, Isiala Ngwa South, Abia State and revamp the Enugu coal mine.

“These two projects will increase economic activities for the zone and create Job opportunities for the Youths and Businesses to thrive and will boast the morals and values of igbos to “Think home philosophy”, as the inland Dry sea Port at Owerrinta Isiala Ngwa South Local government area,  Abia state, will be a major boaster for the realisation of Enyimba Economic City

“While Enugu coal mine will be alternative power supply for the Old Eastern region. We Urge President Muhammadu Buhari to give attention to such demands in the future when it comes.”

Well, firstly it would be helpful for there to be a publication in a national daily that proves that Ebonyi has been granted permit by the federal government to build an international airport. If that is proven, then a major milestone has been achieved in opening up the South Eastern flank of Nigeria for business and development.

But, the reason for suspecting that this is not real is because the Igbo have been used and dumped severally in the past using promises like this to douse their agitations, only for business to continue as usual later.

Gov David Umahi of Ebonyi state needs to deliver a PROVABLE dividend of democracy to the people of South East for his closeness to Buhari. If I were his advisers I would ask him to do this, to prove his critics wrong. Igbo people (ALL OF THEM) love leaders who deliver tangible dividends of democracy. In fact those leaders are immortalized in Igbo minds. That is why the late Sam Onunaka Mbakwe and Michael Iheonukara Okpara, are celebrated in Igboland till tomorrow. Umahi can join them if he delivers Ebonyi International Airport.

Secondly, come to think of it, a revolution is actually happening in Igboland of all places! :o

Who would have thought that the South East governors would be this aggressive in pursuing federal projects for South East? Before the IPOB-led revolution which started with Ekweremadu, these governors were having a field day without fear of being held to account.

It would be foolishness to conclude that these governors are doing these without the IPOB pressure.
But, be that as it may, all is well that ends well!
