President Muhammadu Buhari’s Chief of Staff, Ibrahim Gambari, on Thursday, received some Anambra traditional rulers at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.
Governor Willie Obiano had earlier handed a one-year suspension to the monarchs, for travelling out of the state without permission.
The monarchs were led by billionaire businessman, Prince Arthur Eze, included HRM Eze Dr Nkeli Nzekwe, HRM Igwe Chuba Mbakwe, HRM Igwe Chijioke Nwankwo, HRH Igwe Anthony Onwekwelu and HRH Igwe Chukwuma Bobo Orji.
In a statement issued by the Special Adviser to Buhari on Media and Publicity, Chief Femi Adesina, Gambari thanked the traditional rulers for coming, adding that the gesture would encourage the President to do even more for the region and the country as a whole.
He said, “This is an incentive for the President to do more for the country, and also for the South East.”
The royal fathers listed the projects embarked upon by President Buhari in their region to include “the Second Niger Bridge, that had been presented as an impossible task by previous administrations, but now becoming a reality under your keen watch, the Enugu-Onitsha Expressway, Enugu-Port Harcourt Expressway, among others.
“The people of the South East are, indeed, grateful, as we have never had it so good, and on their behalf, we say daalu (thank you).”
