Expressing gratitude to Imolites, Buhari took to his official Facebook page monitored by 9NEWS NIGERIA to commend the Governor for his deep concern on infrastructure development.

Showing concern over the unabated agitation for secession promoted by the Indigenous People of Biafra – IPOB, President Buhari who in the language he feels South-Eastern Nigerians will understand said:
“It is therefore unthinkable for me that any Igbo man would consider himself not to be a part of Nigeria”.

Acknowledging the critical place that the Igbo people are occupying in Nigeria economy, Buhari again said:

“There is no town you will visit in Nigeria without seeing the Igbos being in-charge of economic activities. The evidence is there for everyone to see, that Igbos are in charge of Nigeria’s economy”.

Critical above all, the President promised to lean on the country Constitution to support the region.

As an appeal to plead with the region to calm their nerves on their alleged thoughts of being shortchanged in the country the President said:

“The Federal Government will complete all ongoing key projects in the South East, including the 2nd Niger Bridge, and other major highways, as well as the railway lines and routes linking the region with other parts of the country”.
