Maduabuchi Nevobasi, the Ezeani II of Mmaku Kingdom in Awgu Local Government Area of Enugu State, has assured President Muhammadu Buhari that the Igbos and the South-East region will always support his administration.
The monarch said this during his visit to Femi Adesina, the president’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, on Friday.
According to a statement issued by Abiodun Oladunjoye, Deputy Director (Information), State House, on Saturday, Nevobasi said President Buhari has done a lot for the South-East region in the last six years, and as such, he would always be welcome in the zone.
The traditional ruler used the occasion to highlight some of the projects undertaken by the current administration in the South-East region.
“Look at the Second River Niger Bridge, which is going on at a frenetic pace. Enugu International Airport has a brand new runway and is now in use,” the statement quoted the monarch as saying.
“The Enugu-Port Harcourt Expressway, Onitsha-Enugu road, and many others are also things to point at in the region.
“We thank President Buhari for all he has done for Nigeria in six years. It has not been easy due to many challenges, particularly security, but the good work continues.”
Nevobasi also commended Buhari’s regime on its anti-corruption efforts since he assumed office and urged him not to relent.
