Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha has called on Igbos in Nigeria to support the ruling All Progressives Congress APC as according to him, only the APC can guarantee an Igbo presidency.
Okorocha said this yesterday at the South East stakeholders meeting in Owerri.
According to him, the Igbos should ensure continued support for President Buhari for eight years to lead the nation, adding that it is the time for Ndi-Igbo to come and work together.
“Now that Igbo leaders are together in the APC, Nigerians will hear us. There is a vacuum 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 the Ndi-Igbo in APC.
“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. The APC is the right party for the Igbos and the only party that can guarantee Igbo presidency” Okorocha was quoted as saying during the meeting.
