A group, Coalition Of Anambra Youth For Buhari (CAYB), has expressed gratitude to Senator Andy Uba for facilitating the release of N37.95 billion out of the N43 billion owed his home state of Anambra for the repair of and rehabilitation of federal roads and other intervention funds on federal government projects in the state by the federal government.
This was made known by CAYB chairman, Martin Chukwu, through a press release sent to NAIJ.com on Monday, July 30.
Chukwu noted that the amount will go a long way in improving the living standard and well-being of the state, stressing that it further demonstrates the fact that President Buhari means well for the people of the Southeast region.
Part of the statement read:“Since the return to democratic rule in 1999, the South East has suffered neglect in the area of road construction and other infrastructural development, despite huge budgetary allocations to the region.
“Ever since President Muhammadu Buhari came on board in 2015, he has demonstrated that he has no negative intentions towards the South-Eastern part of Nigeria as wrongly insinuated.
“With the release of N37.95billion for the rehabilitation of federal roads in Anambra state by the federal government, the current Buhari-led government has further endeared itself to the youths and people of the state.
“The CAYB wish to assure the president that the youths of the region are ready to give him all the support needed to move the region and the entire nation forward.”
On Uba's effort towards facilitating the release, Chukwu said the former Anambra governor remains the best senator in the history of the state.
He said: “Words alone cannot express our gratitude to Senator Uba for facilitating the release of the funds by the federal government.
“It is on record that the senator remains the best federal lawmaker to have ever come out from Anambra state. His track records through numerous constituency projects are a testament of his goodwill for the people of the state.”
The CAYB further assured the senator that the youths and good people of Anambra South will continue to support him in the years ahead so as to attract more development in the state and the region.
Meanwhile, Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo state has stated that he is confident President Buhari would win the 2019 presidential election for a second term in office.
Akeredolu told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that Buhari had done well and deserved to be re-elected, in spite of obvious challenges facing the country.
