Buhari is the choice of Igbos, they will vote massively for him in 2019-Oga

A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ebonyi state, Comrade Chinedu Oga, has assured President Muhammadu Buhari, the presidential candidate of the APC of massive votes in the South-East during the February 16, 2019 poll.

Oga who is APC candidate for Ezza South/Ikwo Federal Constituency in the upcoming House of Representatives election, told The Authority newspaper in an interview that President Buhari’s second term victory would provide the shortest means of producing a president from Igbo extraction in 2023.

He urged President Buhari to ignore the recent endorsement of the candidate of the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, by some Igbo elite.

He said that those behind the endorsement do not even have Permanent Voters Cards (PVC), and therefore are not stakeholders in the elections, and so cannot speak for the people of South-East.

The Authority recalls that some Igbo leaders who recently met in Enugu, the Enugu state capital, declared support for the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, in the forthcoming 2019 election.

Foremost constitutional lawyer and elder statesman, Prof. Ben Nwabueze, urged the Igbo leaders to do him the honour of achieving Atiku’s success.

Oga maintained that the Igbo electorate would support President Buhari to the hilt to enable the region produce Buhari’s successor on the platform of APC in 2023.

He thanked the APC-led administration of President Buhari for commencing work on some federal roads in the South-East, including the Enugu-Port Harcourt Expressway, and the award of contract for the construction of the Second Niger Bridge.

He urged the Igbo electorate to vote massively for the APC presidential candidate in the forthcoming general elections to enable him consolidate on his development strides in the region.

“Buhari is the choice of Igbos. We are going to re-elect him come 2019. It is only Buhari that remembers that Ndigbo have never produced a Nigerian President.

“I can tell you that the victory of President Buhari in the 2019 poll will translate into Igbo presidency in 2023. Those that are hungry and are looking for where to collect money should not deceive us any longer, said Oga.

He assured that he will win the House of Representatives seat with a wide margin, warning that his supporters will not tolerate any attempt by the PDP administration in the state to rig the election.
