2019: Igbos do not hate Buhari, only evil political elite gang up against President - Okorocha

Rochas Okorocha, the Governor of Imo State, has pointed out that the
people of the South-East do not hate President Muhammadu Buhari.

Okorocha made the declaration while assuring that the people of the
South-East will use the 2019 presidential election to prove their love
for Buhari.

He said this at a meeting of South-East APC women and youth leaders
at the Government House in Owerri, the state capital, over the weekend.

The governor also claimed that there was a gang up against Buhari by
the political elite because politicians were not comfortable with him.

Okorocha said the alleged gang up was due to fear of molestation for corrupt practices.

According to him, “Having realised that our voting powers lie on the
youths and women, we want to make them vital instruments for the pursuit
of this expected victory for President Buhari come 2019.

And why the
Igbos should and would support the person of Muhammadu Buhari and
understand what the name Buhari actually means because there has been a
lot of misrepresentations and misunderstanding of the person of Buhari.

“The political jobbers have tended to give him all types of
interpretations but the truth remains that President Buhari is a good
man, a leader and a man who stands by the truth and is not a man who
believes in the primitive accumulation of wealth.

“In the election of 2015, Igbos never gave him the support he
deserved. We were the least in the six geo-political zones in the
support for Buhari in 2015 and that has left a political vacuum for Ndi
Igbo both locally and at the center. So, we want to correct that story
and change the narratives that Igbos do not hate Buhari but actually
love him. Igbos this time around will support President Buhari.

“A victory for PMB is a victory for ndi Igbo and we shall not be
found wanting in the political equation of Nigeria anytime, any day. Our
bad politics in 2015 left a very big gap yet to be filled and we must
fill it. To do so, the youths and women must take up their
responsibilities if this journey must be completed.

“Igbos play a major role in the unity of this nation. And as long as
there is peace in Igbo land, Nigeria will remain an indivisible entity
because there is no nook and cranny of the nation you will go without
finding an Igbo man. So if you ask, who is a true Nigerian, it is the
Igbo man.”
