Coalition of 10 pro-Igbo organisations comprising Realistic Youth Organisation; Igbo National Political Agenda; Buhari/Osinbajo Fans South East Zone; APC Youth Coalition South East Zone; Igbo National Youth Council of Nigeria, among others, has called on the Buhari-led in-coming government to choose Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu to be the next Secretary for the Government of the Federation, SGF.
The group, which made the call in a press statement made available to Nigerian Pilot Sunday, signed by their Chairman, Barr. V.C Osuji; Hon. Chukwudi Iloegbulam, Secretary and Mazi Okemiri Alex, Publicity Secretary, posited that Onu, who was the former National Chairman of the defunct ANPP, was eminently qualified for the position.
According to the statement, Onu, the former governor of Abia State, has been consistent, honest, humble and God fearing while in active politics and would not let the government down.
“With one united voice as an ethnic group, we realistically demand for the position of Secretary to the Federal Government among others.
“In that capacity, our illustrious son Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu is meritoriously and eminently qualified to occupy the position.
“The sterling qualities of Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu in the national politics of Nigeria are our inspiration and a role model. His dexterity, consistency, humility, political sagacity, fear of God, wisdom, vision, non-violent and slavish belief in politics without bitterness stands him out prominently ahead of any other person from the South East,” they posit.
The group while congratulating Buhari on his victory at the polls, which they described as a well-deserved victory because of his doggedness, advised him to be wary of some people who masquerade as Igbo leaders to gain advantage in his administration.
