According to a report credited to sunnewsonline.com, the president of Anambra state chapter of the group Elder Chris Eluemunor, made the appeal while fielding questions on speculations that the project had been abandoned from journalists in Onitsha.
Speaking further, Eluemunor stated that the bridge is of immense importance, not only to the people of the South South and the South East states, but the entire nation.
“Why would anybody stop the project? Any government that tries to stop the project is an enemy of Ndigbo. That project will help travelers coming from Abuja and Lagos as well as those going to Port Harcourt, Aba and other parts of the country to get to their destination easily. Let the project go on.
“After all, Obasanjo told us that the project had started but nothing happened. Now that somebody has launched the project for real, I don’t think it is wise to stop it.
“If the present government does not like the contract terms, let them review it but let the project go on,” he explained.
Eluemunor lent his voice on the delayed ministerial appointments, as he wondered whether president Buhari was looking for angels to occupy the ministerial slots.
He, however, appealed to Nigerians to give the president time to choose his cabinet so that he would not have any excuse if he failed.
Recall that group recently accused the president of being wicked to the easterners, especially with his utterances and habit.
