PRO-BUHARI GROUP HAILS PRESIDENT FOR GIVING EKWUEME BEFITTING BURIAL

PRO-BUHARI GROUP HAILS PRESIDENT FOR GIVING EKWUEME BEFITTING BURIAL
The Enugu State chapter of the Buhari Support Organisation (BSO), yesterday commended President Muhammadu Buhari for giving former Vice President, Dr. Alex Ekwueme, a befitting burial.  The group also thanked the President for naming the Federal University at Ebonyi State after the second republic vice president describing it as a befitting way to immortalise the departed elder statesman.
The group’s Publicity Secretary, Chibueze Eze, in a statement lauded the president for giving a befitting burial to an illustrious son of Ndigbo and a Pan-Nigerian who invented the convention of geo-political zones and who served the country meritoriously as vice president and in other capacities.
Eze noted that the remains of late elder statesman was accorded an official reception at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Abuja, with the Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo present, while the federal government organised a night of tributes for him at the federal capital.

According to the BSO spokesman, the federal government equally sent a high powered delegation led by the Vice President to Ekwueme’s final burial rite at his hometown, Oko, Anambra State, last Friday.  “During the final burial, the vice president announced that the federal government has named the Federal University in Ebonyi State after Alex Ekwueme, AEU, to immortalise him.

“We urge Ndigbo to reciprocate this gesture by supporting President Buhari who has embarked on the construction of 2nd Niger Bridge, Enugu-Onitsha and Enugu-Port Harcourt express way; for a second term in 2019. Port Harcourt-Maiduguri standard gauge rail line will soon take off.

 We maintain that President Buhari’s 2nd Term is the fastest route for person of Igbo extraction to be president in 2023. Accordingly, supporting any other candidate from the North, amounts to entering one chance bus” he said.  Eze reaffirmed BSO’s conviction that President Buhari was fulfilling his campaign promises to Nigerians and Ndigbo in particular, pointing out that federal roads “cruelly” abandoned by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in the South-east and second Niger bridge are now receiving attention.
