Onuigbo, who now serves as a member representing the South East on the Governing Board of the North East Development Commission (NEDC), expressed his satisfaction that even though he is no longer in the green chamber, “with politics and elections over, the Tinubu government deserves commendation and recognition for maintaining an admirable momentum in ensuring the execution of projects awarded under the previous administration.”

He stated, “It is a joy to see that these projects are advancing.”

Others, he said, include the federal Secretariat projects, with the groundbreaking ceremony expected to take place soon.

He also commended Abia State Governor Alex Otti for having “done exceedingly well,” adding, “You can easily see who wants to exercise leadership and engage in achieving good governance. He has done well and has also played a role in ensuring that the federal secretariat is on the right track.

“Otti has shown cooperation and willingness to provide governance,” he said, assuring the governor of his continued support. He added, “It is not about party affiliation, but good governance for the people.”

Regarding insurgency and insecurity, Rt. Hon. Onuigbo said that compared to 2017, “insurgency has significantly decreased” and commended the federal government for its efforts in addressing insurgency in the country and preventing it from creating instability as it did in the past.

He said that the commission is doing a lot in these regards.

According to Onuigbo who is the chairman in charge of security, climate change and Special Intervention st the commission,  “Great efforts have been made to control insurgency. It is not even the commission alone, we are receiving support both by what the comission is doing and then, what some international  organizations are doing and then what the federal government is doing in terms of the military being able to fight insurgency.

“So, the federal government should be commended for how they have been tackling this and resetting people”.

He disclosed that none North Easterners are also benefitting from the activities of the  Commission, adding that apart from the people of the North East, Igbos living and doing business in parts of the North East are also reaping the gains of the establishment of the NEDC.
