The President-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu, has said that President Muhammadu Buhari as an Igbo man.
He also said that Buhari is a member of the apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo.
Iwuanyanwu who said this during the flag-off ceremony of the dredging of the Oguta Lake-Orashi River in Imo State on Thursday urged Buhari to ensure that the project succeeds before leaving office on May 29.
Iwuanyanwu said: “When he took office, we were not happy, but today at the point of departure, things have changed. I can see that the Niger Bridge in Onitsha has been completed.
"I can see that a lot has been done in most states. Like in Ebonyi, the Federal Government has taken over the teaching hospital and the airport. Here in Imo State, a lot has been done for us; in Enugu, it is the same.
“So, I will like you to tell our son, Buhari, that we are very grateful, and I want him to realise that he is an Igbo man, and our son; he has been honoured by some Igbo states like Ebonyi and Imo.
"Chieftaincy in Igboland is taken very seriously; help us tell Buhari that he’s an Igbo son and a member of Ohanaeze Ndigbo by honour given to him.
“But before he goes, whatever he can do to ensure this project succeeds will be appreciated; this project is very important to the whole Igbo people.”
