The Nation claims that Kalu said these things in a meeting with the Bende Traditional Rulers Council, a group of traditional chiefs from Abia State that make up his district. He added that by assigning some of the Igbo people’s sons and daughters to important posts in his administration, Tinubu, who became president of Nigeria on May 29, 2023, demonstrated his dedication to the Igbo cause. Tinubu won a resounding victory in the presidential election.

Among these appointments are the Chief of Naval Staff, Rear Admiral Chukwuma Okonkwo, and the Minister of Works and Housing, Senator David Umahi, the former governor of Ebonyi State. Kalu said that these appointments demonstrate Tinubu’s recognition of the Igbo’s contributions and potentials in the development of Nigeria.

Kalu also expressed his delight over the President’s phone call to him, congratulating him on his election as the Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives. He said that the President expressed his happiness that the Igbo came together to support his candidacy, and that he hopes to work with them to achieve the goals of his administration.

Kalu said that the President’s gesture was a sign of the handshake across the Niger, a term used to describe the political alliance and cooperation between the Igbo and the Yoruba, the two largest ethnic groups in southern Nigeria. He said that this alliance is vital for the unity and progress of the country, and urged his fellow Nigerians to support the President’s vision and policies.

Kalu said; “On this position, we are just starting work. The President called to say I am very, very happy that the Igbo came together for this. Truly, there is hope for the Igbo man. It does appear that this handshake across the Niger has started”

He added; “Let’s us also support the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. Some were afraid whether President Bola Tinubu will remember the Igbo. But he has proved all of us wrong by choosing the Chief of Naval Staff. ”

He stated further; “The President also handed over the issue of Infrastructure into the hands of an Igbo son, Senator David Umahi, my friend, the former governor of Ebonyi to replicate what he did in Ebonyi in Nigeria. There are others too. A President who does not love Ndi Igbo will not do that”. CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>
