IGBO YOUTHS under the umbrella body of the Ohaneze caucus has expressed unalloyed support to the working visit of PRESIDENT BUHARI to Imo state Nigeria on Thursday.
This is contained in a release signed by Onwuasoanya FCC Jones and made available to 9News Nigeria.
The release has requested all IGBO Youths to come out en- masse to welcome the number one citizen of NIGERIA, His Excellency President BUHARI to the Eastern Heartland.
Recall that the President’s visit to Imo state will cement the working relationship between the state and Federal government and in the same vein provide the needed dividends of democracy expected to develop Imo state.
The original copy of the release reads thus:
As we are all aware, the President and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR, shall be in Imo on an official working visit on the 9th of September, 2021.
The President’s visit to Imo is his first working visit to the State since taking office in 2015 and the first time the State is hosting a President on working visit since 2009.
This visit is especially significant given the recent communication from the governor of Imo State, His Excellency Distinguished Senator Hope Uzodimma, to the effect that the President is coming to put final seals on some strategic federal government interventions and partnerships which the Imo State government has agreed with the Federal Government.
Also, a lineup of people-oriented and audacious projects are scheduled to be unveiled and inaugurated for the use of Imo people and for our individual comfort, notwithstanding our political or social leanings.
The President is also billed to hold a town hall meeting with all classes of people from across Igbo land, including, the youths, traditional institutions, traders, artisans, religious leaders and the political class. This town hall meeting shall afford anyone or group the opportunity to ask the President any questions or ventilate whatever might be our personal or group grievances and hopefully, the President shall take adequate note of these questions, observations and complaints.
It is delightful to note that the President is not coming for a jamboree but for serious businesses that every true Imo nay Igbo son or daughter should look forward to.
It is on the strength of the above that Igbo youths, worldwide have resolved, not only to welcome the President to the Eastern Heartland, Imo but to also come out in their numbers to give the President, the hospitality he deserves within the period he is in Imo.
Igbo youths are peace-loving, hardworking and honourable people and would therefore not bring themselves to take part in any activity that aims to disrupt this important State event.
Anyone or group of people found to be involved in any act aimed at disrupting this State visit or harassing those who wish to participate, should be treated as invaders and or felons and not doing so on behalf of Ndigbo or Igbo youths.
The group further pleaded with the public to come out en-masse to give the number one citizen a lovely welcome while the state expect a whole lot of good from Mr President.
The visit is slated to hold on Thursday dated 09-09-2021.
