ELDER statesman and first republic Minister of Aviation, Chief Mbazulike Amaechi is unhappy with Igbo for constantly bemoaning their situation in Nigeria, telling them to stop lamenting their loss of political power in the country because they could still conquer with what they have.
Though Amaechi acknowledged the neglect of Igbo nation, which he said, contributed immensely towards independence and economic growth of the country, he argued that rather than bemoan their situation, Igbo people should exploit their ingenuity by using their technical and business acumen to develop their land.
Giving example with the industrial town of Nnewi, the elder statesman observed that the people of the area have been investing at home, developing their town and providing employment for their people.
In his speech, the chairman of MOFGAS, Chief Shedrack Anakwue said the group’s desire was to seek for a new coalition that would produce a governor after the heart of the people during the next dispensation.
According to him, the body is made up of committed Anambra people cutting across the 21 local government areas with a vision and desire to facilitate and engender good governance in the state.
Also contributing, a former governorship aspirant in the state, Dr. Alex Obiogbolu said Anambra was tired of slogans, adding that ‘now is time to action’.
According to him, a leader must be capable of mobilizing the people, creating jobs, judiciously mobilizing state resources and be held accountable at the end of his tenure.
Governor Willie Obiano, Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige, APC chieftain, Chief George Moghalu and leader of PPA in the state, Mr. Godwin Ezeemo were represented at the ceremony, while former Secretary to the State Government, Mr. Oseloka Obaze, among others, attended.
