Endorsement Of Atiku As Ohanaeze’s Dismissed By Buhari

Endorsement Of Atiku As Ohanaeze’s Dismisses By Buhari

Nigeria president Muhammadu Buhari has uncovered that some good natured Igbo pioneers requested that he disregard the supposed support by Ohanaeze Ndigbo of the PDP's presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.

The president  said he was told that the action by the Ndigbo apex group was all gas, lacking substance.

Buhari made the revelation on Friday at the Presidential Villa, when he hosted a group of Igbo leaders in Abuja, who pledged to mobilise votes for him in next year’s election.

The President said that the moment the so-called resolution was announced, he got calls from well-meaning leaders from the region asking him to disregard it as it was without any substance.

“From that moment, I knew that the resolution would not stand, and alas, there it was,’’ he added.

The President said that his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), got it right from the very beginning that the major problems facing the country were mainly on security, corruption and the economy.

He said: “We have done so much. Given the chance, we will do more. Given every chance, we will tell Nigerians where we were in 2015 and what we have achieved up to now.

“We will not get tired of speaking about the golden opportunity Nigeria lost during 16 years of the PDP. We earned money, which we didn’t use.

“The state of infrastructure we inherited was terrible – no roads, the railway was killed and power. They lacked conscience because anybody with conscience will not do what they did.

“We will report them to Nigerians. Let anybody lead this country but not the PDP. They were so reckless with the resources of the country.’’

“If you ruin the economy, send your children abroad to get education, won’t they come back?” he asked, adding: “I said it 30 years ago that this is the only country we have. We must stay here and salvage it together.”
