South East Group Pledges 5m Votes For PMB’s Re-election



A political pressure group, the  South East Mobilisation Movement for APC, has pledged to deliver five million votes for   President Muhammadu Buhari and other All Progressives Congress (APC) candidates in the 2019 general elections.

Speaking in Abuja after the inaugural meeting of the group, which is predominantly youth based and other grassroots leaders from the region,  the national coordinator, Chief Eugene Ogbonna, dissmissed insinuations that the APC is a hard sell in the South East.

According to him,  the group had taken time to prepare itself for the task ahead in all prospects noting that is now well equipped to ensure victory for the APC in the South East.

Eugene Ogbonna said the group emerged in a bid to live by honesty and fairness to the efforts that have been made by the current APC lead federal government to salvage the South East from the precarious state of infrastructural decadence which the preceding PDP governments plunged the region into.

In a statement issued after the group’s meeting, Ogbonna insisted that the South East has nothing to show as an achievement of the PDP in the region.

On why the people of the region shall vote President Buhari, he said, “It means the Igbo nation has contributed again in pushing the ambition of producing an Igbo President of Nigeria into imprecisions and uncertainties.”

He maintained  that 2023 shall be the best chance for Ndi-Igbo in this democratic dispensation while debunking the impression that the APC has zoned its presidential ticket to the South West for 2023, describing it as a gimmick and cheap propaganda which emanated from the PDP .

Ogbonna further said  the choice of a vice president to the South East is a less significant offer compared with a choice of Senate President as well as producing the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria after president Buhari.

“The solution to the major problems of  Ndi-Igbo to end all forms of agitations and cry for marginalisation is in wise massive political participation and this is the time,” he contended.
