As many Nigerians continue to canvass divergent views about the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, the Igbo Delegates Assembly, IDA, an umbrella body of Ndigbo in the 19 northern states of Nigeria and the FCT has called for caution because the success or failure of the President will rub off on the entire country.
In a statement jointly signed by the president general, Chief Chi Nwogu and secretary general, Auston Ifedinezi after its general meeting in Markurdi, Benue State, the IDA noted that the best thing for Nigeria at this present time is to rally support for the new administration instead of picking holes with its activities at the slightest excuse.
The IDA also expressed its unflinching support for the fight against corruption which they added must be through without sparing anybody no matter how highly placed, because of the negative impact of corruption on the psyche of the nation.
“We call on all Nigerians and the world at large to see the present administration under the leadership of His Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari as the will of God Almighty and give him maximum support, through prayers, constructive advice, trust, good conduct etc, knowing that if Mr. President fails, Nigeria has failed and if he succeeds, Nigeria has succeeded.
“We are unanimous in our resolve to support President Buhari’s zero tolerance for corruption. We are solidly behind him in his avowed determination to recover the stolen money belonging to Nigeria and the attendant punishment, no matter who is involved. We suggest that the investigation/ probe start from 1999 to date.”
The group equally advised President Buhari to give every Nigerian equitable sense of belonging; adding that such could help in addressing the incessant quest for self-determination by some ethnic nationalities as well as religious sentiment which it regretted is fast an assuming alarming dimension.
While advising some overzealous aides of the President not to derail him, the IDA also called for the inclusion of Nigerian youths and women in political appointments so as to give them a sense of belonging.
“We believe in one indivisible Nigeria where equity, justice and fair play prevail and therefore enjoin Nigerians to begin to prefer one another in love without limit,” the statement concluded.
