Lagos - The Ndigbo Cultural Society of Nigeria (NCSN) has advocated for the location of some foreign missions to the South East part of the country.
Following its bi-Annual General Assembly meeting in Lagos, the group wants President Goodluck Jonathan to instruct the Ministry of Foreign affairs to commence the process of attracting key industrial nations of the world to establish Consulates, Deputy High Commissions or Mission Houses in the South-East of Nigeria.
The group said that it was uncontestable that Ndigbo remains the most industrious people in the nation and that government have legitimate responsibility to facilitate her citizenry with all manner of facilitation that can help increase productivity, minimize burdens citizens encounter and bring world key players closer to local participants, especially now that Nigeria is the largest economy in the continent.
"Ndigbo Cultural Society of Nigeria (NCSN) delights in the fact that President Goodluck Jonathan and the Federal Government had already taken the giant stride by upgrading Enugu Airport into an international status and needed to consolidate it with the establishment of Chinese, Indian, German, France, Turkish, UK, USA and other Consulates and Deputy High Commissions in Enugu City,” the group stated at the end of the meeting.
“Ndigbo continues to suffer untold hardship by travelling all the way to Lagos South-West or Abuja, Northern Nigeria to get any diplomatic acquaintances when these missions can be established within the zone and help bring the world closer to their door steps.”
The group thanked President Jonathan’s support and said it was ready to support his government.
It encouraged him to disregard all his detractors and remain focused in achieving for the nation.
