Ohanaeze Tasks Tinubu, S’East Govs To Transform Southeast Into Dubai

Ohanaeze Ndigbo, the leading sociocultural organization of the Igbo people, has asked Bola Tinubu, the president-elect, and the incoming state governors of the Southeast to make their region the “Dubai” of West Africa.

Okechukwu Isiguzoro, the secretary-general of Ohanaeze, made the demand in response to Southwest state proposals to start regional railway and electricity projects.

Isiguzoro recommended building rail lines via Owerri, Onitsha, Awka, and Abakaliki under Tinubu’s administration and that of the incoming governors.

Speaking with Newsmen, Isiguzoro said: “Ohanaeze is calling on the new governors from the Southeast and that of Imo and Anambra to take drastic measures to ensure that rail line passes through Owerri, Onitsha, Awka, and Abakaliki.


“Ohanaeze is taking a lead role in ensuring that there is a rail connection from the commercial nerve centre of the Southeast, Aba, to Owerri to Onitsha where there is a dry seaport.

“But there is no connection between Enugu to Abakaliki. We are challenging the new governors to ensure that by January 2024 we must have achieved 80 per cent of these regional railway lines and electricity.”

He also said further: “We want to congratulate the Abia State Governor for building a geometric power plant in Aba through Professor Nnagi which has been providing electricity for the SMEs and lighting up Aba and its environs.

“We also commend the Ebonyi State governor for the International Airport that would create employment and business opportunities for the people of the state. We are looking at these industrial revolutions that, if properly managed by the incoming administration of Southeast governors, like the regional railway and electricity designed by the Ohanaeze Ndigbo, will transform the Southeast into Dubai and the centre of attraction of West Africa.”

According to him, this agenda cannot be achieved without the support of the incoming Tinubu administration.

Isiguzoro added: “Ohanaeze is urging our people to stop the spirit of antagonism which has turned our region into a horrible place. Most of the marginalisation cry is done by external factors.

“We must end the marginalisation mentality and have a productive mentality. We should form alliances with the moving train.”
