Billionaire businessman, Allen Onyema, has declared that he is a beneficiary of President Muhammadu Buhari’s love for Igbo people.
Onyema, chairman of foremost airline company, Air Peace, stated this recently after touring the ongoing cargo airport at Umuleri, Anambra state built by the Willie Obiano administration.
According to him, contrary to the views that President Buhari is ill-disposed to the people of the south-east, the administration has indeed helped his business in so many ways.
His words: “It is very untrue that he does not like the Igbos. Without me being a member of his party or any party, I am a beneficiary of his support for indigenous businesses, but people don’t know. People believe what they read out there.
“The federal government, President Buhari, through his minister of aviation, Hadi Sirika, has given me China, London, Portugal destinations and entire Europe.
“I am an Igbo man; he has even given me Jedda. I am not a Muslim, but they have given me Jedda. They have given me U.S., India, and etcetera. So, the government has given me about twenty designations to fly to. I am Igbo man. It is not true that President Buhari doesn’t like Igbos.
“The president wants equal economic development for every part. And this President, for sure, I will tell you categorically that when the time comes, he will give his assent to this Airport to be a full-blown international airport.”
Legit.ng had reported that President Buhari recently disclosed that he will spend the next three years on service delivery to Nigerians in some key sectors of the nation’s economy.
The president listed the sectors that will experience unequalled development as education, health care and agriculture.
According to the president, the feat will be achieved through a flexible tax system that will definitely attract foreign investors.
Meanwhile, President Buhari has approved the renewal of the appointment of Mr Joseph Chiedu Ugbo as the Managing Director of Niger Delta Power Holding Company (NDPHC).
The president also approved the reappointment of Messrs Babayo Shehu and Ifeoluwa Oyedele as executive directors of the NDPHC respectively.
A statement by the spokesperson to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, Laolu Akande, sent to journalists on Thursday, August 20 revealed that the renewal will take effect from Tuesday, August 25, for a period of four years.
