Buhari to South East: 2019 will make or mar your chance of occupying the presidency in 2023
Represented by the secretary of the Federation (SGF), Mr Boss Mustapha, Buhari pleaded with the South East not to repeat the mistake of 2015 in which they voted massively for the People Democratic Party (PDP).
Mustapha disclosed that Buhari appointed five ministers from the South East even when he got the least votes from the area.
“2019 will make or mar the chances of the South East zone in occupying the presidency in 2023. I call on South East sons and daughters to have a paradigm shift in 2019 and support Buhari’s re-election,” he stated
“The presidency of this nation is always negotiated and you cannot negotiate from the point of weakness. It will be determined by the votes Buhari gets from the South East, and you have to bring the same expertise you have always employed in trade and commerce into politics, to take over in 2023. It is now the choice for the South East to make
“President Buhari does not hate the Igbo and he has included the zone in all the infrastructure projects and gave the zone five ministers, four of who are cabinet ministers and a minister of state. I am assuring you people that the president will do more for the zone in his second term,” he added.
