The COALITION OF SOUTH EAST YOUTH LEADERS (COSEYL), in a statement signed by its General President, Chief Goodluck Egwu Ibem and Secretary Comrade Kanice Igwe, and forwarded to Odinceblog, have expressed their gratitude to President Buhari for approving 10 billion naira for the rehabilitation of Akanu Ibiam Airport Enugu state Nigeria.
Read their statement Below:
We thank president Muhammadu Buhari for his quick intervention and the approval of N10 billion for the rehabilitation of Akanu Ibiam International Airport Enugu. This gesture is commendable and we appreciate him for that.
By this action, Mr President has reaffirmed the determination of his administration to put good infrastructure in the country.
We commend the South East Governors and South East Leaders who despite their tight schedules still brought out time to visit Mr President for the interest of the zone. This move has moved the region forward.
The South East Governors led by the dynamic Governor of Ebonyi state Gov. Dave Umahi have been very resourceful and determined to enhance the progress and development of South East zone. The South East Leaders delegation that visited Mr. President on Thursday 17th October , 2019 have made us proud.
Their journey was indeed a success and we are very happy with the results they came back with.
The Leadership of Gov. Umahi as the Chairman of South East Governors forum has brought good results to the betterment of the zone. He has brought to bear his better mental capacity in leading the Governors forum to greater heights.
We urge the Governors forum to consider supporting and appealing to Mr. President on the need for economic benefits the country stands to gain by making vehicles manufactured by Innoson Motors a National brand to be used by all government parastatals and agencies , individuals, multinational and private companies in the country.
The South East zone alone produces over 15,000 graduates yearly and it’s very pertinent to work out a strategy to ensure these youths get employed when they pass out from the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC).
If nothing is done to support indigenous firms and enterpreneurs, there will be serious problems of insecurity in the future as some of them may resort to crime because of lack of employment.
We therefore call on the South East Governors and Leaders to itemize making Vehicles manufactured by Innoson motors in their agenda when next they will be meeting with the President.
