Chief Uche Ogar, a former governorship candidate under the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Abia State says that Igbos will benefit more under President Muhammadu Buhari if he emerges in 2019.
According to him, President Buhari’s declaration for presidency in 2019 is good news especially for Igbos.
“What he has done in the South East zone is quite remarkable despite the fact that we did not support him in 2015.
“He gave us substantive ministers, Enugu-Onitsha and Enugu-Port Harcourt Expressways are all under construction including the 2nd Niger Bridge in Onitsha.
“Most importantly, his emergence will give the zone the opportunity to produce the President in 2023,” he said.
Ogar urged people of the zone to support the president’s intention and vote for him massively when the time comes.
On plans to rerun in 2019, the political chieftain said he had not made up his mind adding that he would speak at the appropriate time.
Ogar, who was in Enugu to attend the 43 Annual Synod of the Methodist Church Nigeria, preached for peace in families and the country at large.
