AWKA—National Chairman of African Democratic Congress, ADC, Chief Ralph Nwosu, has mandated President Goodluck Jonathan to build a mausoleum for late Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe after his recent visit to Anambra state.
Nwosu noted that the man, Zik, who made Nigeria to become an independent entity still laid in an unkempt and ‘uncompleteable’ mausoleum.
In a letter addressed to President Jonathan weekend, Nwosu said the federal government should make Anambra State a befitting resting place and a national retreat centre for government/history studies.
He said: “I wish to bring it to your notice that as we still bask in the euphoria of the 50th anniversary of Nigeria independence, the man, Zik, still lie in an unkempt and ‘uncompleteable’ mausoleum. The federal government spent billions to celebrate the independence this honourable gentleman championed.
“We offer you the platform of our party, African Democratic Congress, ADC and we shall support and work for your victory. However, this support is premised on you being the anchor of the change we advocate, which we hereby restate as our genuine expectation”.
Refering President Jonathan’s declaration speech, Nwosu said that the president is determined to champion the anticipated change that Nigerians have been waiting for.
“We need a sanitizing moral crusade to save our country, and with the content of your declaration speech, I can affirm that you are determined to champion the change. I advice that as the incumbent CinC, you should set your transformational agenda with the Nigerian people and engage them regularly and report progress as you may agree with them as they are truly the principal stakeholders in project Nigeria”.
