“Such money will be use to build refineries in the country,’’ he said.
Ezekwueme also urged the president-elect to run an all inclusive
government and be magnanimous in victory.
“CD hails the president-elect for his courage; consistence in
standing for the election despite that he had earlier contested the
post for three consecutive times.
“While we thank Nigerians for their peaceful conduct before, during
and after the elections,’’ he said.
The CD boss appealed to the president-elect to appoint men and women
of impeccable integrity into his cabinet if he really wants to make a
change in the society.
He, however, appreciated President Goodluck Jonathan for earning
international respect and recognition for willingly accepting the
people’s wishes and aspirations of majority of Nigerian electorates in
the just-concluded election.
