Personal Assistant on Social Media to the President, Lauretta Onochie, has said that the Ndigbo, yesterday, proved their love for President Muhammadu Buhari.
Onochie, on her Facebook page said Igbos turned out en-masse from all the South Eastern states, adorned in their colourful traditional regalia to welcome Buhari.
She further claimed that Ebonyi, is the only State capital Buhari has spent a night since his inauguration as the President of Nigeria.
Her statement read, “CHIEF BUHARI, UTUTU OMA! Isa la chi?
“Yes, he woke up this morning in Abakaliki, the state capital of Ebonyi State, the only State capital, he has spent a night, so far, since his inauguration as the President of our great nation.
“President Buhari conferred with the title of Ochioha NdiIgbo 1 by South East traditional council of rulers led by Eze Eberechi Dick during his visit to Ebonyi State on 14th Nov 2017
“Yesterday, Ndigbo proved us right that they love our President. The event in Ebonyi State, was not left for the Governor and people of Ebonyi state alone. It turned out to be an Ndigbo event. Many Ndigbos from all the South Eastern states turned up in their colourful traditional regalia to welcome a man, who is working for them and who has promised to do more.
“But there’s a clown, a charlatan and a comedian, all rolled in one, who goes by a fake name, “Emmanuel Powerful. He is not powerful enough to remember and use his family name, but he threatens the Commander In Chief of the biggest Army in Africa and an Igbo Triple Chief Muhammadu Buhari, Ochioha Ndigbo (Leader of Igbo people), Enyioma 1 of Ebonyi (Trustworthy friend of Ebonyi) and Ogbuagu 1 of Aba Kingdom.
“Going by his name, he is not an Igbo man so he needs to ask his partner in crime, ex leader of proscribed Terrorist organisation IPOB, (if he knows where he is), what Ogbuagu means.
“It’s foolish, stupid, silly and childish to tell the President of our nation, who has the mandate of the people of Nigeria, not to come to a section of the territory under his jurisdiction.
“Today, Baba woke up in Abakaliki. He will soon, be on his way to Awka, an industrial hub in Igboland and a key city in the #MadeInNigeria and. #BuyNigeria agenda of the Buhari Administration. Nigeria belongs to Nigerians. And there’s no “No go area” for any of us, including our President. Thank you Ndigbo.
“God bless Nigeria.”
