With few weeks to the February 25th General election in Nigeria, the Eze Ndigbo Ghana and the Assistant Publicity Secretary Association of Ndieze Ndigbo in the Diaspora, HRM Dr Chukwudi Ihenetu has joined other well meaning Nigerians to call on electorates to pick up their Permanent Voters Card (PVC) and votes the right candidate who
would librate the country from bad governance.
In the recent weeks, state governments across the country had declared public holiday to enable civil servants pick their PVCs before the deadline expires.
In a statement issued from the revered Obiukwu Obieziokwu palace in Ghana, the Umuduruoha Amaigbo Nwagele Imo-State born Royal father, HRM Dr Ihenetu, a Global Peace Ambassador said it is only through election that the electorates can elect credible candidates of their choice.
While condemning the untidiness surrounding the implementation of the cashless policy and the redesigning of the Naira note by the Central Bank of Nigeria, the Royal father said the development has imposed untold hardship on Nigerians who needs the Naira to carry out their daily transactions. He warned that unless something is done urgently to address the lapses, the situation could affect the economy negatively.
On the fuel scarcity, HRM Dr Ihenetu expresses disappointment on officials handling the downstream sector of the petroleum Industry for their inability to arrest the scarcity.
He said despite huge amount of money paid as subsidy,the country still find it difficult to get petroleum products across the country.
While commending President Muhammadu Buhari for some of his achievements so far, especially on infrastructure culminating in the completion of the second Nigeria Bridge, HRM Dr Ihenetu appealed to President Buhari to tackle insecurity, and entrench good governance deeply rooted on fairness, equity and justice, adding that this measure would provide conducive environment for the February 25 poll.
