Nnamani urges Ndigbo to shelve emotions, support Tinubu
Former Enugu Governor Senator Chimaroke Nnamani has urged Ndigbo to shelve the emotional sentiments over the 2023 elections and support the incoming administration of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Nnamani, in a statement in Abuja, affirmed that since Tinubu will be sworn in as President on May 29, 2023, “Our leaders and people should join other ethnic nationalities to negotiate for accruals from the joint Commonwealth of the Nigerian as soon as possible.”
He said: “In God’s time, Igbo elites will shake off the shackles of politico-visceral emotion, unreasonable petulance of her youth, and twin apathy and nonchalance of her elders.
“Ndigbo should join the comity of other Ethnic Nationalities of Nigeria to share equitably her Palaver and resource accruals.”
He maintained with elections over, “what is needed now is to support the incoming government, participate to be able to negotiate for dividends of democracy to our people.”
Nnamani told his people to reflect on the journey so far to avoid the pitfalls that put them in a disadvantaged position in the past.
“Days of grumbling are over. We should align with the mainstream administration and be able to attract dividends of democracy to our people,” Nnamani said.
He said he is convinced that a Tinubu administration will be fair and just in the allocation and distribution of resources to all Nigerians irrespective of ethnic or religious affiliations
