The pursuit for Igbo presidency can only be achieved under the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government, the All Progressives Congress (APC), has said.
APC Vice Chairman in the South East, Chief Emma Eneukwu, made the disclosure while speaking during a meeting of the party’s Zonal caucus held at Uburu, Ohaozara Local Government Area of Ebonyi.
Eneukwu stressed that the political prospects of the Igbo-speaking region could be better served under the APC-led administration.
He urged the party in the region to remain more united and focused especially as the 2019 general elections approach.
Eneukwu noted that the party has been repositioned to capture political power in the remaining four zones in the state and called for contributions of the party leaders for the success of the ruling party.
He said, “The clamour, the agitation for a Nigeria’s President of Igbo extraction is only achievable under the Buhari administration and what is needed is for South East zone to double our support for Mr President.
“We must align the region to the mainstream national politics, support APC and ensure the re-election of Buhari in the 2019 general elections.”
