APC chief says Ndigbo have nothing against Buhari, party
Board of Trustees (BOT) member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Gen. John Okoloagu (rtd.), has said that Ndigbo have nothing against President Muhammadu Buhari and the ruling party.
Okoloagu spoke when he revalidated his membership of the party in his Ukehe hometown, Igbo-Etiti Council of Enugu State.
According to him, the Igbo are in APC like they are in other political parties; hence it is erroneous for anybody to infer that the Igbo hate APC or Buhari.
He insisted that APC was neither an Hausa nor Yoruba party, but party for all Nigerians, noting that when Olusegun Obasanjo was in power, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was not labelled a Yoruba party.
Pointing out that in a free and fair election, APC would win election in any part of the country especially Enugu, he said: “PDP is not on the ground.”
The retired General appealed to the Chairman of APC revalidation/registration exercise, Sen. Jonathan Zwingina, to ensure that the Electoral Act was passed into law to curb rigging.
Zwingina, who was in Enugu for the exercise, urged ward chairmen to convince people to register with APC, pointing out that even civil servants were free to register and become party members.
Chairman of Enugu APC, Dr. Ben Nwoye, urged party faithful in the area to embrace the exercise, adding that it would place the APC in a vantage position to win elections in future.
Nwoye, who was commended by Zwingina for his efforts to ensure that the exercise was successful, assured that the APC would capture Enugu in 2023.
He, therefore, urged all APC faithful to take the exercise very seriously and called on PDP members to use the opportunity to join APC.
