The Managing Director, National Inland Waterways Authority (NIWA) and former National Auditor, All Progressives Congress (APC), Dr George Moghalu, has, over the years, built himself into a political brand, as a party administrator and political appointee.

Speaking to Sunday Sun, Moghalu described President Muhammadu Buhari as the best in terms of infrastructural legacies, stressing that Nigerians will understand the impact he has made by the time he leaves office

He also challenged the incoming government of Bola Ahmed Tinubu to surpass the achievements of the outgoing administration, just as he enumerated the mileage NIWA, under his headership has recorded in his first tenure.

As a close ally to President Buhari, what do you think he will be remembered for by the time he leaves office?

He will certainly be remembered for so many things. Nigerians will appreciate President Buhari when he leaves office. No Nigerian leader has impacted the nation, especially in infrastructure as Buhari has done. He may not have done everything because as I will always say, Nigeria is a work in progress. He may not have done everything, or solved all the problems in Nigeria, but he has really done very well.

The Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has berated the Nigerian Government over the travails of the former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu in the United Kingdom, UK.

Ohanaeze’s spokesman, Alex Ogbonnia, accused the Federal Government of being after Ekweremadu.

Ogbonnia wondered why the Federal Government would confiscate Ekwereamdu’s properties amid his travail in the UK.

A UK court had sentenced Ekweremadu to nine nine years in prison for organ trafficking and harvesting plot.

However, Ogbonnia accused the Federal Government of doing nothing to help Ekweremadu.

A statement by Ogbonnia reads: “They did not treat him like someone who has served meritoriously in this country.

“Rather, while he was facing the travails, the federal government came out with charges and allegations of corruption and seized his properties.

This is a man who has been around you, walked with you for years and when he needed your help, they were busy talking about auctioning his properties.

A civil society group, Congress for Rights Of Yoruba Nationalities (CROYN), has decried a comment by Emeritus Catholic Archbishop, John Onaiyekan, seeking stoppage of the inauguration of the President-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, saying it was unexpected of his status as a leading religious leader and an elder-statesman with callings to promote religious unity, national stability and peace, rather than heightening tension and engaging in subtle provocation.

The group, in a statement by its National President, Abiodun Fanoro and General Secretary, Tunde Aiyenumelo, noted that the comment had also inadvertently given him out as one of the promoters of interim government come May 29, 2023.

The group said if Onaiyekan could deploy what he believed was a lacuna in the country’s constitution for not providing for the conclusion of election petitions before inauguration, he ought to have also condemned the unconstitutional interim government plot, which they claimed it was obvious he supported, because there could not be a vacuum from May 29.

“We totally believe that the revered cleric has the constitutional and democratic right to belong to any of the registered political parties or cast his vote for any of the presidential candidates apart from Bola Tinubu.
