2019: Buhari Will Sweep South-East Despite Obi’s Nomination – Nwosu
The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress in Imo State, Uche Nwosu, has 'stuck out his neck' for President Muhammadu Buhari.
The South-East is a Peoples Democratic Party dominated region but Nwosu on Sunday said Buhari would win massive votes in 2019.
He said Buhari will win despite Atiku Abubakar's decision to pick his running mate from the geopolitical zone.
Nwosu, who spoke to newsmen in Owerri, said the nomination of a former governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi, as Atiku’s running mate would make no impact.
Nwosu said, “I don’t think that the nomination of the PDP presidential running mate from the South-East will affect anything, because President Muhammadu Buhari has made a landmark decision, I call him a man of his word.
“One thing is sure and that is President Buhari cannot be compared to Atiku Abubakar. President Buhari is a man of integrity and remember that the country was almost gone before he came in and since he came in, you can see that every part of our economy is doing well and our integrity abroad has been restored now.
“President Buhari remains the best for the Ndigbo and the country. The Ndigbo will wait till 2023 to produce the President after Buhari has served out his second term than this vice-presidential slot to the South-East.
“Anybody from the South-East who is supporting Atiku is making a very big mistake. We cannot afford to wait for another eight years to have an Igbo man as President, I think it is a carrot that is being dangled before the Ndigbo but we must reject it."
