From Chuks Collins, Awka

The leader of the Nnewi Importers Association, Pastor Longinus Chukwuma has insisted that the incoming administration under General Muhammadu Buhari could only record success in its much vaunted readiness to fight corruption in all spheres of Nigerian life if it would not mind sacred cows and make it a total war.

Pastor Chukwuma declared this yesterday in Nnewi while addressing journalists on other expectations of the importers from the new General Buhari’s administration. Pastor Chukwuma reasoned that in order to restore the diginity of Nigeria and sanity within the system the fight against corruption should be total irrespective of party affiliation, social status, ethnic of origin or religious bias.

He noted that most Nigerians were known to be smart and were always ready to circumvent any given policy unfavourable to them. He advised that measures marshalled out by General Buhari’s administration to fight corruption should be strigently followed if it could achieve the desired objective.

Pastor Chukwuma also said that there was need for balanced federal appointments to reflect the federal character, adding that the in-coming President should see the entire Nigeria as his constituency irrespective of ethnic or religious background.

On the outcome of the presidential election, the importers leader said: “The will of the people is the will of God. One person must be a winner. We are not after who wins the election. We are more interested in the peace of the nation.

“We dof our cap for Jonathan. Indeed he is the hero of Africa and what he did by congratulating the President-elect, General Buhari is not in the blood of the blackman. He saved so many lives and properties by that singular act. He realy did what he has always preached, that no personal ambition is worth the blood of any Nigerian.”

He advised lawyers handling various petitions at the Elections Petitions Tribunals not to delay in trashing out petitions before them in order to save time, cost and quel anxiety as he called for fair hearing.

He said that the President-elect was expected not to abandon good projects initiated by President Jonathan, adding that Buhari should consolidate on the gains of the out-going administration and improve on them including in the power sector.

He appealed to Buhari to implement to the letter the decisions of the national conference which he said should not be seen as the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) or All Progressives Congress (APC) document but one that concerned all Nigerians.
