The ruling All Progressive Congress, APC, has maintained that President Muhammadu Buhari will hand over power to an Igbo person in 2023.
The party urged Ndigbo to embrace the party.
The party stated this at the weekend in Umuahia, at the inauguration of the South East chapter of the Presidential Support Committee, PSC
The South East Zonal Coordinator, Engr. Chemberline Adiaso said Buhariu has proven to be “a man of integrity and honour.
“President Buhari can be entrusted with Nigeria’s resources without fear of looting, re-looting or collective mismanagement of our resources in the name of coalition or government of national unity.
“For Ndigbo in particular, I would like to take this opportunity to remind ourselves that our future is in our hands now and it is time to show that we mean business.
“I do believe that we know what we want but whether or not we are prepared for it depends largely on our collective choices in the forthcoming 2019 polls.
“The 2023 Igbo Presidency agenda is not only realizable by sticking with President Muhammadu Buhari, but will also be a watershed in the lives of Igbos.
“The opportunity has never been this bright, glaring and inviting since the return of democracy in 1999. It is absolutely your choice to make.”
The position of the party is contrary to the position credited to Works and Housing Minister, Babantude Fashola, who had last month stated that Buhari would hand over to a Yoruba in 2023.
