Chairman of the Senate Committee on Cooperation and Integration in Africa/NEPAD, Senator Chimaroke Nnamani, Enugu East has asked the Ndigbos to put away emotional sentiments over the 2023 elections and support the incoming administration of the President-elect Bola Tinubu.
His plea comes ahead of the 29th of May inauguration of Tinubu.
Affirming that Tinubu will be sworn in as President, Senator Nnamani said, “Our leaders and people should join other ethnic nationalities to negotiate for accruals from the joint Commonwealth of Nigerian as soon as possible.”
Nnamani calls for collaboration
In a recently released statement, Nnamani charged the “Ndigbos to work with the comity of other ethnic nationalities of Nigeria to share equitably her Palaver and resource accruals”.
He said, “In God’s time, Igbo elites will shake off the shackles of politico-visceral emotion, unreasonable petulance of her Youth, and twin apathy and nonchalance of her elders.
The former Enugu governor who stressed that elections are over added that there is a need to support the incoming government to be able to negotiate for dividends of democracy to our people.
Also, Nnamani asked his people to reflect on the journey so far to avoid the pitfalls that put them in a disadvantageous position in the past.
He said, “Days of grumbling are over. We should align with the mainstream administration and be able to attract the dividends of democracy to our people.”
Furthermore, Nnamani expressed the belief that a Tinubu administration will be fair and just in allocating and distributing resources to all Nigerians irrespective of ethnic or religious affiliations.
Nnamani’s call comes closely after the Catholic Bishop of Sokoto, Matthew Kukah, asked Bola Tinubu to prioritise the security of Nigerians, eliminate chains of ethnic and religious bigotry and recover the country from the “men of darkness”.
