President Buhari also had shown gratitude on how he was welcomed to the region. He took to his twitter handle, to thank the people of the Southeast…
According to him; “I thank the people of the Southeast for the enthusiastic welcome they’ve accorded me since I arrived this morning. From Enugu to Abakaliki, I have enjoyed a profuse display of warmth from everyone; political leaders, traditional leaders, citizens. I thank you all.
The welcome also came with 2 Chieftaincy titles: Enyioma 1 of Ebonyi, which I am told means Trustworthy friend of Ebonyi; & Ochioha Ndigbo, which means Leader of Igbo people. I am a strong believer in the unity of Nigeria. Our diversity should be a source of strength not weakness.
Let me make this clear: We will deliver on all our promises to you. I said it when I met with Southeast leaders last month in Abuja, in response to the issues they raised about the state of roads and infrastructure in the region. I’m saying it again: We will not let you down.
Let me specially commend Governor David Umahi for his vision and commitment to the development of Ebonyi State. We are united by our unwavering commitment towards ensuring that the lives of our people are made better by our service,” Buhari noted.
