Igbo socio-cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has lauded President Bola Tinubu’s first year in office.

In a statement on Wednesday by its secretary-general Okechukwu Isiguzoro, the group noted that the past few months signified a period of progress and development for the country.

“Despite the inherited challenges such as a retrogressive economy, treasury looting, and infrastructural decay, Tinubu has demonstrated the political will to overcome these obstacles more effectively than the previous eight years under former President Muhammadu Buhari,” the group said.

Isiguzoro contrasted Tinubu’s approach with the previous administration, alleging that “during the Buhari regime, the South-East, as a region faced ‘deliberate economic suppression and targeting, leading to strife and insecurity.’”

“In contrast, President Tinubu’s administration has fostered hope and progress in the South-East through initiatives like the ongoing road reconstruction and rehabilitation projects, fostering economic activity and inclusivity,” the statement added.

While addressing lingering challenges, Isiguzoro called on Tinubu to “halt property demolitions in Lagos, release Nnamdi Kanu, enhance trade policies, and reopen the Calabar Seaport to stimulate economic growth further.”

The association also advocated for the removal of underperforming ministers, stating, “Ohanaeze also advocates the removal of underperforming ministers to drive progress and efficiency.”

Ohanaeze restated its commitment to partnering with the government and urged opposition leaders to join hands with Tinubu “to rebuild the nation for prosperity and progress.”
