A GROUP of Igbo youths on the platform of Nation of Ndigbo Youth Forum (NNYF) has said that the former governor of Abia State and a chieftain of All Progressives Congress (APC), Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu, deserves to become the next Secretary to the Government of the Federation, (SGF), considering his support to the party and the president-elect, Major General Muhammadu Buhari.

Addressing reporters in Awka on Tuesday April 28, 2015, the group, described Onu as a consistent politician, adding that while others were defecting to the ruling party, he remained in his party, knowing that by working hard, a serious-minded opposition party could become a ruling party.

National coordinator of the group, Ndubuisi Ani, said, “it is a fact that we have some faithful, steadfast politicians who have been in opposition since the inception of the present democracy in 1999.

“One of such politicians is Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu, a principled, disciplined gentleman.

“His name readily comes to mind should the position of SGF be zoned to the South East by the APC. We have watched with keen interest the unfolding events and wish to humbly believe that appointing Onu as the SGF will be a deserved appointment.”
