Seems the arrival of President Muhammadu Buhari in Nigeria from London, has sparked up support and ignited APC members in Biafra land to start his 2nd term campaign. Their eagerness to support President, who just returned from London after receiving treatment is tremendous being that a lot of hostility has been in the Biafran region before and after Buhari being president. Members of the Ebonyi State chapter of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) joined supporters of President Muhammed Buhari to campaign for the incumbent ahead of the 2019 elections.
In a joyous mood, Acting state Chairman of APC, Mr Eze Nwachukwu, speaking during the rally said,
“We thank God for the recovery of Mr President from his sickness and successful return from the medical vacation in London to resume his normal duty as president. The overwhelming crowd that attended the rally is a clear indication that Ebonyi is indeed an APC state and by massively attending this solidarity rally is another indication of the love Ebonyi people have for our president and his populist government.
“This is the third time APC in Ebonyi is organizing this type of rally to demonstrate its love, support, and loyalty for Buhari and the APC-led central government.”
“We have witnessed tremendous life-transforming programmes and policies which are impacting positively on the lives of the ordinary citizens, including job creation, economic repositioning, infrastructure, anti-graft and fight against insecurity, among others.
“We are calling for more support for Mr President, while urging him to avail himself for 2019 to enable him to consolidate on the many achievements so far recorded by his administration.
“We want to reiterate that Ebonyi is an APC state and that we pledge our unalloyed and unflinching support and loyalty to the President and Commander-in-Chief of Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria,” Nwachukwu also said.
From this, we can conclude that Buhari will get overwhelming support from the South Eastern Part of Nigeria when he declares to run for President for his second tenure?
