Nnamani --Igbos Are Going To Vote For Buhari In 2019

‘Igbos Are Going To Vote For Buhari In 2019′ – Nnamani, Other APC South East Leaders’
Prominent South East politicians on Saturday,
January 28 agreed to back President Muhammadu Buhari for a second term come 2019.
They said they will only gun for the
plum office after expiration of the president’s second term.
These were the highpoints after a brainstorming session in Owerri, the Imo State capital.
The decisions came on the heels of former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s clamour for Igbo Presidency in 2019.
At the well attended meeting, a former Senate President, Ken Nnamani, emerged leader of All Progressives Congress (APC) in the Southeast.
It was also disclosed that three current governors in the zone will be joining the APC soon.
Those in attendance at the meeting held at the Imo International Convention Centre (IICC) were: 
 Ken Nnamani, 
Emeka Offor, 
Ifeanyi Araraume, 
George Moughalu, 
Tony Eze, 
Ebuka Onunkwo, 
Jombo Offor, 
Eze Madumere, 
members of the National Working Committee of APC, as well as other prominent politicians from the zone.

Speaking after a closed door meeting, the host governor, Rochas Okorocha, said: “Now that Igbo leaders are together in APC, Nigerians will hear us.

There is a vaccum of leadership in the South-East APC. I am a Governor. My brothers Chris Ngige and Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu are ministers.

“Hence the importance of Ken Nnamani coming at this time. I declined leadership of Ndi-Igbo in APC.

“With Ken Nnamani, the question of who is the leader of APC in the Southeast has been answered. Ken Nnamani is the leader of APC in the South-East.”

He went on: “Senator Nnamani should then work with other leaders like Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu, Jim Nwobodo and a host of others to give Ndi-Igbo Political direction.

“Those who have joined the Party or who want to join should do so to build the Party and not to cause Confusion. APC is the right Party for the Igbo and the only Party that can guarantee Igbo Presidency”.

He went: “We are going to support President Muhammadu Buhari for the eight years he is going to lead the nation.

“This is the time for Ndi-Igbo to come and work together. We are also going to use the Anambra election to show that APC has arrived Southeast.

“The Igbo played bad politics in 2015. Today we have lost a lot. We are not anywhere because of our bad politics.”
