Igbos Are In Charge Of Nigeria’s Economy - Buhari Says

President Muhammadu Buhari has stated that Igbos from the South-east are in charge of the country's economy.

He said this when he paid a one-day visit to Imo State on Thursday.

Buhari, who said the Igbos are important to the economy of the country because of their resourcefulness and enterprising spirit, said it is unthinkable for them to think they are not part of Nigeria.

‘‘The fundamental thing about the Igbo people is that there is no town you will visit in Nigeria without seeing the Igbos being in charge of either infrastructure or pharmaceutical industry." he said.

He said he wants to be remembered as a president who united the country.

Meanwhile, President Buhari in the visit, commissioned four projects executed by Governor Hope Uzodinma, including the Naze/Ihiagwa/Nekede/Obinze link road, the Balloon Driven/Flood Control drainage at Dick Tiger Road, the Egbeada Bypass road and the New Exco-Chambers, Government House, Owerri.
