President Buhari and visiting south-east delegate

Nigerian president, Mohammed Buhari today was visited by a group of people from the south-eastern part of Nigeria. The name of the visiting party was not made known and hence they didn’t represent the south-east region of Nigeria.

The presidency welcomed the group on a one-on-one meeting with the president.
The group, led by Chief Chido Obidiegwu, said it had keenly observed the strides of the Buhari administration nationwide, particularly in the South-east, “and it is now payback time.”

We would mistake his concept of payback time as a denial of support during the elections. But the presidency stated that the group pledge to support President Buhari on his re-run for the presidential office.

Nevertheless, the leader of IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu has surfaced. He made a broadcast which could make the southern part of Nigeria dormant during election, giving president Buhari an upper hand in the election.

Against all believes by many, the group describe president Buhari as a man of intergrity.

The Group described President @MBuhari as the “grandfather of war against indiscipline and corruption, nightmare of insurgents, Mr Food Security, consolation to pensioners, and Mr Frugality.”

Buhari in response stated that

“We are trying to organize the country. The extent of mismanagement we met when we came was mind-boggling. Many times, I have spoken about the tremendous resources available to us between 1999 and 2014, and how it was frittered.”
”If only they had used just 25% of it on infrastructure; road, rail, power, Nigerians would mind their own businesses, and not bother about whoever was in power… No wonder they are in opposition now, despite all the power they thought they had.” — President Buhari.

Last week the presidency was also visited by South-East Amalgamated Market Traders Association of Nigeria, led by Chief Okwudili Ezenwankwo, Chairman of the Association accompained by Chief Emeka Offor and Senator Ken Nnamani.
