Ahead of 2023 presidency, Zikist-Buharist-Movement (ZBM), South East, has commended the newfound synergy between President Muhammadu Buhari and South East leadership, which led to the automatic release of N10 billion for the upgrade of Akanu Ibiam International Airport, Enugu.

The commendation was contained in a statement released by ZBM in Enugu on Sunday.

In the statement signed by the Chairman, RT. Hon Stanley Ohajuruka and Secretary, Godwin Onwusi, ZBM called for strengthening of the synergy as the country approaches the crucial 2023 elections.

The group noted that prior to the rapprochement, harvested from diplomatic shuttle consequent upon the colourful meeting of Thursday October 17, 2019 at State House Presidential Villa, Abuja, between our leaders and Mr. President, only N1billion was slated for the upgrade of the airport in the 2020 Budget, but this new found synergy has upped the upgrade from N1billion to N10billion.

ZBM equally commended Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State and his colleague governors of the South East for following the pragmatic and principled footsteps of Rt Hon Benjamin Nnamdi Azikiwe, the Owelle of Onitsha of blessed memory.

The statement read further: “For in the ZBM we had for the umpteenth time canvased for the unimaginable dividends of democracy the art of compromise can bring to the table of the good people of the South East. This is the age long way of our icon, Owelle of Onitsha.

“ZBM consequently calls for deepening of synergy between President Buhari and South East leadership as we approach the crucial 2023 presidential election. As building strategic alliance and bridges across the Niger will enhance the South East chances of harvesting the zoning convention between northern and southern belts.”
