2019 presidency: APC chieftain, Adighije warns Ndigbo against toeing wrong path


Ahead of the 2019 general elections, the leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Caucus, in Abia state and former Abia representative at the Federal Revenue, Mobilisation Allocation and Fiscal Commission (RMAFC), Senator Chris Adighije, has pleaded with the people of South-East zone to vote massively for the APC to enable the zone get fully involved in the scheme of things in Nigeria.
Adighije regretted the voting pattern of the people of the zone in the 2015 presidential election, warning that such step if toed again, would doom the Igbo nation.
The APC chieftain made the appeal while reacting to the statement credited to the Vice President Yemi Osibanjo where he called on the people of South West to vote massively for Buhari in the forthcoming presidential election so as to enable the region take over the nation’s mantle of leadership in 2023.
He harped on the need for the people of the South-East to support the APC in the coming presidential election to enable the zone take its shot at the Aso Villa in 2023.
Recall that Osibanjo had, while speaking in Ibadan, Oyo state last week, said a vote for Buhari may lead to the South-West producing president in 2023.
Adighije reacted thus, “He (Osibanjo) is the vice President. He is also from South West zone. And I’m also preaching, asking on our people to vote massively for APC, so that we can have a chance to take over the mantle of leadership in 2023.
“Is politics, but in actual sense, the south west has had the opportunity under Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, the South-South has had the opportunity under Goodluck Jonathan. Morally, south east ought to, but, is politics.
“So, all I’m asking the south east zone is to wake up, live up to responsibility, vote massively for APC, so that nobody would have any reason to ask South West to vie for President, when they have already done so.
“Definitely, if we (ndigbo) do our homework very well, I’m sure, South West must at the appropriate time, see reasons that the South East should be allowed to produce Nigerian President in 2023.”
The APC chieftain however sued for peace as the 2019 general election approaches, urging the electorates to go for credible candidates in the upcoming election.
