He spoke on the backdrop of the first international commercial flight from the South-East geo-political zone via the recently remodeled and upgraded Akanu Ibiam International Airport, Enugu, in Enugu State.
He wrote: “In 2011, I made a promise to the people of Nigeria that every zone of our great nation would have an international airport. A little over two years to the day I made that promise we are witnessing the inaugural international flight from the Akanu Ibiam International airport, Enugu.
“As I said during my inaugural address, ‘the time for lamentation is over; this is the era of transformation’.
“Our rail infrastructure is being brought back on track and expanded; our road networks are receiving attention even as we insist on getting them wider and better. As some of you may have noticed, the aviation sector is being overhauled so as to make flying accessible to the average Nigerian.
“Let me use this occasion to encourage all patriots to remain resolute in our collective pursuit of development and happiness. We must make progress together and no Citizen, no Community in our Country will be left behind. Our determination to ensure developmental justice in ALL the zones shall remain unshakable. GEJ”
