Onyeama Defends Buhari On Marginalisation Of South-East
While some people think president Muhammadu Buhari is marginalising the South-East, minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, says the impression is false.
Speaking during a campaign tour of Adani, in Uzo Uwani Local Government Area of Enugu State, Onyeama said that the false notion which had led to the formation of separatist groups needed to be placed in its right perspective.
He said that as a minister and member of the Federal Executive Council, he could attest to the de-tribalised disposition of the president.
The minister cited the unprecedented Federal Government projects going on in different parts of the region as a clear testament that the president did not hate Igbos.
He assured the people of Adani known for rice production, that they would benefit from the massive road revolution going on in the zone to enable them gain access to markets to sell their farm produce.
He said that several development agenda of the federal government under Buhari including the economic renaissance would have the Igbo man as the highest beneficiary.
“We all love children and Buhari also loves children. He is concerned about their future.
“That is why in his second term, more attention will be given to education and the school feeding programme to encourage and keep them in school because they are the future leaders.
“Our people should vote for Buhari so that the benefits pensioners enjoy under the current dispensation and the security of the region will not be cut short,” onyeama said.
