A non-executive director of the Rural Electricity Agency (REA), Chief MacSolomon Alozie has told Ndigbo that support for President Muhammadu Buhari remains their surest pathway to occupy the presidency in 2023.
Alozie stated this while speaking to LEADERSHIP ahead of the All Progressives Congress (APC) 2019 presidential primaries in Umuahia, the Abia State capital, saying such hope exists in no other party.
He said this has been the body language of both the president and the leadership of the party since its formation in 2014 and subsequent coming to power in the 2015 general elections.
He added that since it had become clear that Buhari is the sole aspirant in the contest, Ndigbo should make concerted efforts to be seen among the members who would make the outcome successful.
According to the member representing the South East zone on the board of the agency, “We should also be counted during his making of the final push, which is recapturing of Aso Rock a reality.”
He warned that if they failed to use the opportunity to prepare to get to the seat of power, it would take almost a decade for such “golden opportunity to come their way again in other parties.”
Alozie said he was sure that during the electioneering campaign other candidates might dangle fantastic promises before them, saying none could be as palatable as those Buhari has for them.
“This is why we must close ranks to campaign for him in every nook and cranny of the zone as well as make sure our votes are counted and protected,” said the young emerging Igbo leader.
He also added that he had delivered on his campaign promises despite fierce opposition and deserves reelection for his achievements.
“Without being immodest, I make bold to say that the zone has benefited far much in the past three years or so than it did during the 16 years of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) rule,” Alozie noted.
