Enugu Airport : President Buhari Deserves Commendations By All Nigerians – Sen. Kalu
Former Governor of Abia State and Chief Whip of the Senate, Senator Orji Kalu has applauded President Muhammadu Buhari for the successful reconstruction and re-opening of Akanu Ibiam International Airport (AIIA), Enugu.
Senator Kalu said that President Buhari deserves commendations by all Nigerians also stressed that Buhari is committed to infrastructural development across the country, adding that the landmark projects being executed in the South East by the federal government should be applauded by Ndigbo regardless of political affiliation.
The former governor, while urging Igbo sons and daughters both at home and abroad, to support the federal government in its efforts to reposition Nigeria, stressed that the South East has witnessed robust development under President Buhari.
Speaking in Abuja on Sunday, while hosting a cross-section of professionals of Igbo origin , Kalu noted that President Buhari is determined to sustain investments in critical infrastructure across the country , adding that the welfare of Nigerians is a top priority in the policy thrust of the federal government.
He said, ” with the successful completion of the rehabilitation and upgrade of Akanu Ibiam International airport, Enugu, the people of the South East, should appreciate the efforts of President Muhammadu Buhari in making life meaningful for Nigerians, Ndigbo inclusive.
“I recall when the airport was closed for reconstruction in 2019, some people who play politics of bitterness, were making noise that the project would be abandoned. “Today, I am sure these political jobbers are regretting their utterances as President Buhari has demonstrated his love for Ndigbo, with the timely delivery of the newly reconstructed Enugu international airport.
“With improved facilities at the airport, the capacity of the airport has been strengthened.
“The newly rehabilitated airport, upon full resumption of local and international flights, will witness large influx of passengers and commercial activities.
“The economy of the South East has been boosted with investments in key infrastructure like the newly rehabilitated Enugu International airport.
“The federal government under President Buhari has executed many projects in the South East including the Ikot Ekpene-Alaoji-Ugwuaji Switching Station, Nmandi Azikwe Mausoleum, NSIA- Umuahia Diagnostic Centre (NUDC), upgrade of Aba-Itu- Malabar 132KV Line (82km) and other projects.
“There are still ongoing federal government projects including the Second Niger Bridge, Enugu-Port Harcourt Expressway, Owerri-Umuahia road and others.
“The President is a friend of Ndigbo and as such he has continued to demonstrate his love for Igbo with the landmark projects being executed in the South East.
“Anyone who says the President does not like Ndigbo is being economical with the truth.
“The President has friends across the nooks and crannies of Nigeria including the South East.
“I recall during my stint as Governor, President Buhari, was our guest in Abia state. During his visit, he was conferred with a chieftaincy title in my hometown, Igbere and he was equally honoured with a honorary doctorate degree by Abia State University (ABSU), Umuahia.
“The President is passionate about a united Nigeria. He is determined to ensure even development across the six geopolitical zones of the country.
“The Governors of South East despite belonging to the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) enjoy a good working relationship with President Buhari.
“The governors alongside other Igbo leaders meet with the President from time to time to discuss issues relating to the development of the South East zone.
“As leaders, we must put sentiments aside and work for the progress of our region and Nigeria at large.
“The time is now for Igbo sons and daughters to join the All Progressives Congress (APC) in a bid to achieve the South East of our dream, with the support of President Buhari.
Kalu, urged the political class in the South East, to applaud the efforts of the President in fixing infrastructure in the region, adding that the President will not be derailed from his robust agenda to reposition Nigeria.

Prof. Aliyu Abdullahi Jibia said President Muhammadu Buhari had made a mistake in accepting that he was being called a good man.

Prof. Aliyu Abdullahi Jibia, the P.R.P candidate for governor of Katsina State, made the announcement on his Facebook account.

Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari has made a big mistake by accepting to be called an honest man, and today he has been denied by God, because God is truthful.

“After all, in his words he shows that he is the most talented person in the world, while God is the Expert!

In the same way, Buhari criticized everyone’s work, and then God made him tired too!

Then he showed the Southerners the full Love, forgetting that the Southerners were not experienced!

Finally, whose city is it?

As long as Buhari does not repent to God, despite his failures, and admit that he made a mistake, and seek God’s help, he will never succeed again, except to reap losses!

I Aliyu Abdullahi Jibia, by God willing I will continue to inform him this, until the end of my life, until he changes!

I will do this, because with my gums this government had been set.
