“There are six key things that any governor must work on – provide roads and accessible in­frastructures which will lead to free flow of commerce and ease security monitoring. He should also invest in agriculture and agro-biotech industries to in­crease youth employment, self reliance and job security. He should equally provide stable power supply to encourage increase in small scale industries and transfer of technology.

“In the area of education, the government can invest to provide quality primary and secondary education and make it affordable and free to every child in the state.

“Health care system must be fixed for better affordability of care. Another major focus should be massive rural and urban development. This can be used to reduce migration of youths and increase of self reli­ance within the rural popula­tions.

“A government that works must reflect on the quality of the people’s everyday life. We should have a safe and secure environment to live in peace and get back and forth to our daily cares affordably. Aba, our ancient commercial breadbas­ket city must be brought back to its old glory at least with all the previously thriving industries brought online to provide em­ployment and economic boost to the state.”

Speaking on the issues regard­ing the continued detention of Nnamdi Kanu, the IPOB and Buhari’s role in the whole mat­ter:

He said; “I wouldn’t speak for the Ohaneze Ndigbo or any other responsible organization in this regard. As a Nigerian, I would advise that the Igbo nation take a stand on this struggle. I would also advise the IPOB to heed to the decision of Igbo nation. Both should sync in ideology and mission.

There is a legal involvement on the mat­ter and I would advise that both the presidency and the IPOB should respect the outcome of the matter in court. President Buhari should lead by example of a true patriot and a president under the rule of law regarding the judicial pronouncement to release Nnamdi Kanu”.
