Vote Buhari or forget Igbo presidency – Okorocha

Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, has said the Igbo  have their destiny in their hands by voting for President Muhammadu Buhari on Saturday,  for second term, or forget Igbo presidency.

He said this while addressing a mammoth crowd at zonal rallies for Okigwe and Owerri zones, respectively, yesterday, organised to campaign for president Buhari and other candidates for Saturday’s election.

He regretted that some Igbo politicians are allegedly campaigning to deceive the Igbo, again, as they did in 2015.

The Okigwe and Owerri zones rallies, held at Okigwe Stadium and the Dan Anyiam Stadium, respectively.

He alleged that some Igbo politicians, including Chief Hope Uzodinma and others, have become tools in the hands of some politicians outside Igbo land, who hje said are not disposed to Igbo presidency, adding that such external forces are positioning men like Uzodinma against the Igbo interest.

Governor Okorocha said: “Some people, especially our brothers are campaigning now against president Buhari, saying he is Boko Haram and a herdsman, etc.

“You can remember in 2015, I was telling the Igbo, to cast their votes for Buhari because he would win with or without the votes of the Igbo.

“I was called all sorts of derogatory names. Some said I was going to Islamise the whole Igbo. Is Igbo land Islamised today?

“Igbo, today, are playing politics with the mindset of a trader, thinking only of the immediate benefits, unlike other tribes that are playing real politics.

“My people, listen to me and listen real good, whatever I tell you to do, do it as it will profit us. I’m telling you, today, that Buhari will win.

“On Saturday, if Igbo  support Buhari and hewins, in 2023, Igbo will have the right to demand  Igbo presidency. Those who love Igbo nation must vote for president Buhari because if we miss this chance, we may not get the presidency even by 2023, 2027 or 2031.

“The time is right for the Igbo nation to play the right politics, so as to have a clear chance by 2023.”
