The Civil Liberties Organisation (CLO), on Saturday, urged political class to emulate the forthrightness and sacrifice exhibited by Chief George Muoghalu, Managing Director/CEO of National Inland Waterways Authority (NIWA).
The Chairman of CLO Anambra, Comrade Vincent Ezekwueme, made the call while speaking with newssmen in Enugu.
Ezekwueme spoke on the sidelines of the transparency and forthrightness in which Muoghalu had used to reposition and resuscitate the moribund Onitsha River Port.
“Muoghalu, who was appointed NIWA boss on Oct. 1, 2019; promised to resuscitate moribund river ports and reactive inland water transport for efficient service delivery, revenue, jobs and wealth creation for the government and citizenry.
“Also, Muoghalu in a meeting with the Onitsha business community and stakeholders early this year, promised to make Onitsha River Port not only functional but the port of final destination for South-East designated containers. We thought it was rhetoric and usual political statements.
“Fortunately, he has proved that there are still benevolent servant leaders who can fulfil and accomplish their set goals for the citizenry.
