The Chief of Staff to the President, Prof Ibrahim Gambari, on Thursday, received some traditional rulers from Anambra State at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The state government had earlier in the day suspended the monarchs for one year for travelling out of the state without permission.

The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, announced their visit in a statement titled, ‘Anambra monarchs laud President Buhari for developmental strides in South East’.

Adesina said the traditional rulers expressed appreciation to the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), for his commitment to the development of the country in general, and the South-East in particular.

He said the monarchs were led to the Presidential Villa by Prince Arthur Eze and quoted Gambari as thanking them for coming.

“As it is generally said in most parts of the country, when you thank somebody for what he has done, he is encouraged and does more. This is an incentive for the President to do more for the country, and also for the South East,” Gambari reportedly said.

According to the statement, the royal fathers listed the landmark projects embarked upon by Buhari in their region to include “the Second Niger Bridge, that had been presented as an impossible task by previous administrations, but now becoming a reality under your keen watch,” the Enugu-Onitsha Expressway, Enugu-Port Harcourt Expressway, among others.

“The people of the South East are, indeed, grateful, as we have never had it so good, and on their behalf, we say Daalu (thank you).”

The monarchs included HRM Eze Dr Nkeli Nzekwe, HRM Igwe Chuba Mbakwe, HRM Igwe Chijioke Nwankwo, HRH Igwe Anthony Onwekwelu, and HRH Igwe Chukwuma Bobo Orji.
