Igbo presidency: VON DG, Okechukwu applauds SGF


The Director General of Voice of Nigeria (VON), Mr. Osita Okechukwu has hailed the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Barrister Boss Mustafa, for his advice to the people of Southeast Nigeria to support Buhari’s re-election in 2019 and have a better chance of producing a president in 2023.

DAILY POST recalls that Mustapha had advised a delegation of the Ebonyi State Chapter of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) who visited his office on Tuesday, that the shortest way to actualise Nigeria president of Igbo extraction is to vote overwhelmingly for President Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR in 2019.

Speaking with journalists in Enugu, Mr. Okechukwu thanked the SGF, “for the good advice he gave Ndigbo, through the Ebonyi State APC, who he urged to preach it to the other South East states that the shortest way to Igbo presidency is to support Buhari in 2019.”

He said, “I am glad that my boss, the Secretary to Government of the Federation (SGF), Barrister Boss Mustapha has added his voice with his candid advice to Ndigbo.

“We have serially shouted on top of our voices, reminding Ndigbo of the imperative of voting for Buhari, so as to harvest the golden opportunity provided by the presidential zoning convention between Northern and Southern geopolitical zones in 2023.”

“Buhari is the only president in the last 19 years who deemed it fit to construct the 2nd Niger Bridge, to revamp dilapidated South East road infrastructure and is the only Northerner bound by the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to exit in 2023. This is the shortest route, as any other Northerner is 2027.”

Okechukwu asked Ndigbo: “shall we continue sulking marginalisation, and lamentation; instead of grabbing the opportunity providence has provided us with both hands?

“ I am pretty sure that our South-West and South-South brothers and sisters in APC will in the spirit of equity and natural justice support us if we support Buhari.”
