GUO vows to support APC if Buhari concessions Onitsha port
By Phil Okose, Onitsha
An Onitsha-based road transport magnate, Chief Godwin Okeke, has vowed to support the All Progressive Congress (APC) if the federal government eventually concessions and makes the Onitsha River port functional.
Making the vow during the stakeholders’ meeting with the NIWA MD, Chief George Muoghalu, at the All Saints Anglican Cathedral Church hall, Onitsha, on Monday, Okeke stated that, “we cannot just remain in buying and selling.”
“If they can give us the much awaited concession of the Onitsha river port, work on the Onitsha/ Awka/Enugu expressway and complete the construction of the 2nd Niger Bridge, something that the former government could not do in the last 15 years they were in power, and then we start receiving our goods from this Onitsha wharf, I will campaign and vote for APC”.
“I am not a politician and do not go for party gatherings. I am ready to tell my people the truth, I am not a contractor, neither am I begging anybody for anything. Because of the problems in the world today, particularly COVID-19, Nigeria is better than America, China and others; I spend my holidays in my country home, Adazi-Ani”.
“So, let President Muhammadu Buhari do those three things and I will do the campaign for APC” he reiterated.
The transport guru stressed further that elders who are up to 75 years in age should give way for the youths to take up political offices and other positions, hinting that he had transferred his duty to his children.
