The Publicity Secretary of the Lagos Chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Joe Igbokwe, has asserted that the Igbo nation has a more better chance of producing the presidency in the nearest future if they vote President Muhammadu Buhari.
Igbokwe made this assertion while fielding question from journalist in Lagos.
According to him, the people of the south east should separate emotions from politics, especially when it affect their choice of a vice-presidential slot.
“We should support PMB, instead of Atiku; there is need for the Igbo to key in so as not to lose out in the scheme for power.
“Politics is a game of numbers. Igbo must demonstrate commitment through their support and key in with a political party that would guarantee the realisation of their aspirations.” he said.
He insisted that there was the need for the South East to work towards winning the trust and friendship of other geo-political zones, to guarantee their support for an Igbo president in 2023.
“The president has even said so, that he will support an Igbo presidency in 2023. It is wise that we also support him in 2019.
“Apart from being members of the APC, as Nigerians, we believe that the President has integrity, is hardworking, intelligent, dependable and is also not corrupt. But sentiments will not allow some people to see it,” Igbokwe added.
