S/East APC leaders rebuff Obasanjo, endorse Buhari

29 January 2017, 08:09

Owerri - Days after former President Olusegun Obasanjo urged on Igbo politicians to consider a 2019 presidential bid, All Progressives Congress (APC) leaders from the South-East have rebuffed him with their endorsement of another four years for President Muhammadu Buhari.

Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State disclosed this at a meeting of all APC leaders in the zone held at the Imo International Convention Centre (IICC) on Saturday, reports Vanguard.

Speaking on behalf of the leaders of the APC in the South-East, Rochas Okorocha said APC is the party for Igbos to realise their potential.

Among those present at the meeting were Nnamani, Sir Emeka Offor, Senator Ifeanyi Araraume, Chief George Moughalu, Tony Eze, Ebuka Onunkwo, Jombo Offor, Eze Madumere, members of the National Working Committee of  the APC and some  prominent politicians in the zone.

Okorocha also named former Senate President, Ken Nnamani who recently joined the party as leader of the APC in the South-East.

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 added, “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”.

Okorocha also revealed that three serving Governors in the South-East are planning for defect to the APC.
