The youth wing of the All Progressives Congress in the South-East has released a statement urging the National Inland Waterways Authority Chairman, George Muoghalu, to include the resuscitation of the Onitsha Inland Ports in its project.
In a statement, the APC Youths spokesperson, Odu Olisaemeka Onyeka, thanked the Buhari-led administration for appointing an Easterner to head such a sensitive sector.
Muoghalu, who was the former party auditor until his recent appointment, was a loyal party member and dedicated his time to promoting the party, according to Onyeka.
“Muoghalu has been a beacon for party supremacy and a guiding light for younger members of the party. He has always shown great passion for the growth of the party. He has the requisite experience and knowledge to move the National Inland Waterways Authority (NIWA) to the next level,” Onyeka stated.
Meanwhile, Muoghalu was appointed to replace his predecessor who has now been appointed as the Minister of Health, Dr Olorunibe Mamora.
Muoghalu is expected to perform and use his position to make sure the Onitsha Inland Port comes back to life, according to Chairman of CLO, Anambra Chapter, Mr Vincent Ezekwueme.
“This is the best independence gift to the people of South-East. It is clear that Buhari has provided the opportunity towards the resuscitation of moribund Onitsha River Port,” Ezekwueme revealed.
