Former military Administration of old Imo state, Rear Admiral Ndubuisi Kanu, has called for a return to true federalism in Nigeria in order to move the country to a greater height, in Umuahia
Kanu made the call at the public presentation and launching of the two books highlighting the speeches and achievements of the Abia State Governor, Dr Theodore Ahamefula Orji in the past one-year.
According to him, there is a strong will by Ndigbo and indeed Nigerians to live in an equitable country, jointly, separately or severally and there is also the will for Nigerians no matter the maneuverings of a few to resist inequity, injustice, suppression, oppression and retrogression.
Kanu said what appears lacking was the will to consummately establish the true wishes and will of the different people for the country they would love to live.
The former military Administrator expressed satisfaction with the administration of the governor and urged him not to be distracted in the good work he was doing.
In his speech, Governor Theodore Ahamefula Orji who expressed gratitude to God for the programmes and polices initiated by his administration which touched positively on the lives of Abians, said he was humbled by the two books written on his one year in office and reinstated his devotion to God and commitment to moving the state forward.
Orji commended the initiator of the project, Sam Hart, for deciding to document for posterity what he has been able to do within the period under review, pointing out that he was happy that within one year his administration was able to touch the lives of the people positively.
In their good will messages, two former military administrators of the state, Colonel Ike Nwosu ( Rtd) and Pastor Colonel Moses Fasanya (Rtd) urged the governor to be wary of sycophants who will come to him to blackmail others just to curry favour from him.
