President Muhammadu Buhari has declared that the Igbo had the right to the Presidency and promised to back them at the right time.
Buhari made this known as he spoke in Owerri, the Imo State capital, during a “mega rally” by his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), South-East Zone, saying that the elections were “make or mar” for the Igbo.
He, however, solicited the support of the Igbo for his re-election bid in 2019, saying next year’s general elections would determine the future of the country.
Represented by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, Buhari pleaded with Ndigbo to support his reelection ambition in 2019.
“The 2019 election is not about political parties; it is about the Igbo nation. You need a paradigm shift; it will determine the future of this country,” the President said.
On his part, the APC National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, said four years was not enough for Buhari to deliver on all his campaign promises.
“For letter writers, we are happy that their evil plan of the third term did not work,”
Oshiomhole said, referring to former President Olusegun Obasanjo.
“I thank Senator Ken Nnamani who held the Senate and made sure that there is no third tenure. For 16 years, the PDP destroyed this country,” he said.
