The All Progressives Congress (APC), in Anambra, has told Ohanaeze Ndigbo to stop setting the agenda for President Muhammadu Buhari.
Former chairman of Ohanaeze in Anambra, Chris Eluemunoh, previously asked the president to complete the second Niger Bridge.
In a statement by the Publicity Secretary of APC in Anambra, Okelo Madukaife on Wednesday, he described Eluemunoh’s call as sheer ‘busy body.’
He said, “Buhari does not need such reminder from anybody to do the right things for the people of the area. Buhari and Ndigbo do not need a selfish call from a hate campaigner working to confront Ndigbo with the Federal Government.
“They can do without those trying to drive a wedge for themselves in the guise of Ohanaeze activists.
“It’s the dream of Buhari government and all visionary persons in the South East, including every member of APC in the geopolitical zone, to see the completion of the second River Niger bridge. It is this project that many try to isolate and hype as second Niger Bridge and position it as a signature project for Ndigbo.’’
“Many politicians, particularly of the PDP stock, who enjoy the unflinching loyalty of Eluemuno, have taken this advantage to exploit Ndigbo.
“The exploitation cuts across government but got to a height under the Goodluck Jonathan administration.”
