The Director General of the All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Organisation, Rotimi Amaechi, has urged the people of the South East to vote President Muhammadu Buhari for a second term in order to get the presidency in 2023.
Amaechi made this known on Thursday at the APC’s presidential campaign rally in Enugu.
The former Governor of Rivers State and current Transport Minister said that the South East deserved a shot at the presidency like all the other geo-political zones.
He urged the people of the zone to vote Buhari massively in the forthcoming election and stand a better chance to produce the next president in the next presidential election.
Amaechi said, “Other zones have taken their their turn, it is the turn of the Igbo and the easiest way to get there is to vote for Buhari. The former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar will do terms of eight years, if he wins the election but President Buhari will complete his second term of only four years.
“I am an Igbo man because my wife is from Anambra State. We should all vote for Buhari for us to realise our dreams easily.
“The Buhari administration has done well for the southeast. He is building the Enugu- Onitsha road and the Enugu – Port Harcourt road.”
This is just as the president himself said he had no promises to make to the South East.
Buhari said, “Distinguished Ladies and gentle men. I do not have any new promises to make. But I am here to thank you most sincerely for all the time you spent to see and listen to us.
“You have been told what projects that are ongoing, and the Minister of Transportation is so optimistic that we promise you to complete the railway line from Port Hacourt to Maiduguri through a number of states in the South East.
“He is going to be a problem to me in Council because he is going to say that I was sitting when he made the promise that I must fulfill it. I want to assure you that the promise we made in 2015, we have made earnest substantial progress to execute them.”
