The Transformation Ambassadors of Nigeria(TAN) has indicated its readiness to mobilize heavily all it members, lovers of good governance, peace and security of the nation to give a rousing welcome to President Goodluck Jonathan when his campaign train berths in Awka and other parts of the South East geopolitical zone from tomorrow.

President Goodluck Jonathan

A press statement from the Anambra state coordinator of the group, Chief Chuma Nwofor stated that TAN was preparing to give a the president a memorable reception.

Also since the leader of the group, Dr Ifeanyi Ubah hails from Anambra, he is expected to draw all the political heavyweights in the zone to Awka today to receive Jonathan. There were reports that Uba has spent days in the state to tidy things up, while PDP mops up the rest arrangement.

The president’s visit coincides with the heightened agitation by the people of the zone, especially Anambra for so many unfulfilled promises to the zone by Jonathan in 2011. They included 2nd Niger Bridge, reconstruction of Enugu-Onitsha Highway, East-west/East South highway, Rail line connecting Onitsha with The North/Lagos/Portharcourt, additional state for the zone, listing of Anambra as Oil producing, etc

The zone has been restless over the non implementation of these and many other pressing needs that they considered were reason they gave a blanket support and block vote to Jonathan in 2011 but got nothing in return. So they have expressed dismay and said they were not willing to be taken for a ride once again. It was so bad that elder statesman and former Vice President , Dr Alex Ekwueme who is known for few words had to speak out urging Jonathan to take action and speak less!
