Igbos do not hate Buhari, they love him – Okorocha
Governor Okorocha who was speaking over the weekend at a meeting of the South-East APC women and youth leaders at the Government House in Owerri, the state capital said the decision by the region not to support the candidacy of President Buhari in the 2015 elections left a political vacuum for Ndi Igbo both locally and at the center.
“The political jobbers have tended to give him all types of interpretations but the truth remains that President Buhari is a good man, a leader and a man who stands by the truth and is not a man who believes in the primitive accumulation of wealth.
“In the election of 2015, Igbos never gave him the support he deserved. We were the least in the six geo-political zones in the support for Buhari in 2015 and that has left a political vacuum for Ndi Igbo both locally and at the center. So, we want to correct that story and change the narratives that Igbos do not hate Buhari but actually love him. Igbos this time around will support President Buhari.
“A victory for PMB is a victory for ndi Igbo and we shall not be found wanting in the political equation of Nigeria anytime, any day. Our bad politics in 2015 left a very big gap yet to be filled and we must fill it. To do so, the youths and women must take up their responsibilities if this journey must be completed,” he said.
