Billionaire oil magnate, Prince Arthur Eze, has said that the Igbos support President Buhari and will remain loyal to him for his “tremendous provision of economic and infrastructural facilities” in the South-East since he assumed office in 2015.
In a statement released by his media aide, Oliver Okpala, Eze said Igbos have benefitted massively from the Buhari-led administration. According to him, projects such as the 2nd Niger Bridge, the Akanu Ibiam International Airport and the creation of zonal police headquarters (zone 13) at Ukpo Dunukofia in Anambra State, attests to the fact that Igbos have benefitted immensely from the present administration.
The statement in part reads
“President Mohammadu Buhari and the Inspector General of Police have demonstrated uncommon goodwill towards the people of the South-East geopolitical zone and should now rest assured of our unalloyed support and loyalty.
The modernisation and uplifting of the Akanu Ibiam Airport to an international standard with modern runway and facilities that can compete favourably with any airport in any part of the world, is another step worthy of commendation.
The concern of the South-East zone in terms of security, protection of lives and property has been tackled head on by the President
Citing a new police zonal headquarters as zone 13 at Ukpo, Dunukofia, in the Awka Capital Territory of Anambra State is a feat that has shown clearly that the President is a man of the moment for the Igbo and the entire South-East.”
