Royal father scores Yar’Adua low

By Tony Edike

ENUGU—THE Traditional Ruler of Nike Community in Enugu East Local Government Area of Enugu State, Igwe Julius Nnaji, yesterday called on the Federal Government to wake up from its slumber, saying that Nigerians were yet to feel the impact of the much publicised  seven point agenda of the Yar’Adua’s administration.

Igwe Nnaji, who spoke during the traditional wedding of his daughter, Ogbonna Onyia to Nathaniel Anike in Enugu, noted that the present administration has not fulfilled any of its promises made in the development agenda for the outgoing year, advising the Federal Government to fast tract its moves to develop the country.

“The Federal Government has not actualized even one of the much talked about seven-point agenda. After more than two years, we are yet to feel the impact. The Federal Government should wake up from its slumber,” the royal father said.

The traditional ruler said it was unfortunate that some state governments performed far better than the Federal Government in the past few years and urged the Federal Government to step up efforts towards the development of the country.

On the call for President Yar’Adua to resign on account of his ill health, Igwe Nnaji said the calls were unnecessary, adding that those making such calls “are people without human minds.”

“That is the topic of those who do not have human minds. Nobody should talk about it at this point. We should pray for the president to recover. Even outside Nigeria, there were cases when Presidents and Prime Ministers became sick and nobody called for their removal. I think the calls are not necessary now” Igwe Nnaji said.
