How Igbos Can Produce Buhari’s Successor – APC Chieftain, Egbo


A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Ebonyi
State, Dr. Steve Egbo has observed that only President Muhammadu Buhari
can ensure that an Igbo man becomes Nigeria’s President in 2023.

Speaking during a stakeholders meeting at his country home
in Eziga Onicha Local Government Area of the state, Egbo said only by
supporting the Buhari-led APC can the future of Igbos produce the
successor of the President.

Assuring the zone that the ruling party has a lot to offer the zone
than the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Egbo noted that the
Buhari-led government has done more for the zone in less than two years
in office than the 16 years government of PDP.

Egbo said it was time for the South East to work with the North for the good of the country and the zone in particular.

He said, “The South East has always partnered with the North and that
partnership has endured. Looking down the line, the relationship is
clear.

‘”During the first Republic, the NPC formed a coalition with the NCNC, leaving the AG at the opposition desk.
“At the dawn of the second Republic, it was the NPN and the NPP and again the arrangement paid off handsomely.

“The Yoruba play traditional opposition and they are good at it. We
do not have the patience, the dexterity and palliative to play that
league.

“But this time around, the Yoruba played a fast one and while we are
grumbling and quarrelling, they are reaping the rewards. Yes, we paid
the price for our wrong choice of Jonathan and wrong partnership with
PDP.

“So, it is time to join the main stream, time to reclaim our position
and take what belongs to us. So far, APC has done more for the Igbo in
less than two years than the PDP did in 16 years.

“The future of the Igbo nation lies with the APC. If the Igbo could
learn to be less boisterous and less vindictive and give the necessary
support to President Buhari, you can be sure that the Igbo will provide
Buhari’s successor in 2023. I have no doubt about, but first, we must do
the needful. We must begin to play good politics.”
