Even Though they Didn’t Vote for me, I Have been Fair to Igbos- Buhari
President Buhari has rejected the notion that he has in any way marginalised the Igbos, claiming that he had been fair to them despite not receiving any love from the region.
The President, while speaking in an interview with Arise TV, said that despite not having many votes from the South East, where a lot of Igbos are located, he was still impartial towards them.
“Somebody made an observation that I was not patronising the Igbo from the South East. I told him that when I won the election, I studied the amount of votes I got from all the geopolitical zones.” he said.
“I said I got 198,000 from the whole of the South East, which virtually any local government can give me. But I appointed ministers of foreign affairs, labour, industries, and investment, mines and tech; these four; I never knew them from Adam. Ministers of States from seven states of the north are under these ministers. How fair do you want me to be?” he added.
“So I threw him away with his paper.”
