Pursue Diplomatic And Private Engagement” With Dave Umahi – Ohanaeze Tells Obi

Ohanaeze Ndigbo, the apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, has urged Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party in 2023, and a few other candidates to pursue “diplomatic and private engagement” with Dave Umahi, the Minister of Works, about the proposed coastal highway between Lagos and Calabar.

The organization stated that this was preferable to open conflicts that would obstruct the project’s advancement.

According to a statement released by Ohanaeze’s Secretary-General on Sunday, Okechukwu Isiguzoro, the remarks are not in the best interests of the country.

The statement read, “Ohanaeze Ndigbo, the revered apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, rises with unwavering clarity amidst the tumult of baseless scrutiny and undue criticism directed at the Lagos-Calabar Coastal Road project and the commendable work of Senator Dave Umahi, Minister of Works.
