Guber Election : Igbos Must Embrace APC if they want Presidency in 2023 – Buhari Group
President Muhammadu Support group under umbrella of Presidential Support Committee, BSO said the Igbos must join mainstream politics now and vote APC during the guber elections or forget about presidency in 2023.
According to the group, the Igbos need to retrace their steps or they will continue to be losers if they fail to join the ruling party .
Addressing a mammoth crowd of supporters during a Buhari victory celebration held at Rigasa ,Kaduna,Northwest, Nigeria , the Director Media and Publicity of the Committee, Engineer Muhammad Kailani called on all geopolitical zones to join hands in making Nigeria great, particularly by ensuring all states return APC candidates as their governors.
He said democracy is a game of number and that, President Muhammadu Buhari won the just concluded presidential election as a result of massive votes delivered to him from the North, nothing that had the president relied on the South to gather votes,he would have lost the election.
“Southwest delivered two per cent votes of about 433,000 Southwest delivered 25 per cent, which is one million votes, while the north alone gave over five million votes for Buhari to win the elections. Northerners population is their strength.”
Speaking on rejection of the last Saturday presidential poll outcome by the PDP candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, Engr. Kailani challenged the PDP candidate ” to go to court and give lawyers and judges their own share(money),” if he is not satisfied with the poll’s outcome.
He said the court option by Atiku is not in national interest, but rather, “a futile attempt to heat up the polity.
Kailani who urged Atiku to accept the result of the elections in good faith for the nation to move forward however said: “he (Atiku) should congratulate himself for getting as many as over 11 million votes from Nigerians, because his stand on national issues seems to have portrayed him as capitalist with a desire to reap where the masses should be fairly accommodated.
“Atiku is claiming that he has evidence to prove that the presidential election was rigged against him in favor of President Buhari. This assertion is in sharp contrast to election observers who went round the polling booths.”
