President Buhari has done substantially well for southeast - Oshiomhole





- Adams Oshiomhole, said that President Muhammadu Buhari has done well for the southeast to deserve the people’s massive support in the February polls

- Oshiomhole said that Buhari’s developmental strides in the zone was enough to prove his critics wrong

- The APC chairman urged the people to vote massively for President Buhari’s re-election

Adams Oshiomhole, the national chairman of the All Progressive Congress (APC), on Friday, January 11, said that President Muhammadu Buhari had done substantially well for the South-East to deserve the people’s massive support in the February polls.

Oshiomhole said this at a rally in Umuahia to formally handover the party’s flag to the governorship candidate of the party in Abia, Chief Uche Ogah, as well as the state and National Assembly candidates.

He said that Buhari’s developmental strides in the zone in less than four years of his administration was enough to prove his critics wrong.

He listed the reconstruction of Enugu-Onitsha and Enugu-Port Harcourt Expressways, the construction of the Second Niger Bridge and completion of Late Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe’s mausoleum in Onitsha, as some of the president’s achievements in the area.

The party’s national chairman therefore urged the people of the zone to vote massively for Buhari’s re-election.

He admonished them not to repeat the mistake they made in 2015, when they allegedly voted against APC.

He further charged them to vote for Ogah and other APC candidates in the polls to ensure the rapid transformation of the state.

He described Ogah as a product of self effort, industry, creativity and enterprise.

He said: “Ogah is self-made. He is not coming into government to steal your money.

“I’m happy that in Abia we had a direct primary that produced him. It was transparent. I’m proud of him.”

Also, former Governor Orji Kalu, who is the Abia North Senatorial candidate of APC, said that Abia would give Buhari 70 per cent vote in the February 16 election.

He berated the Governor Okezie Ikpeazu led-administration for allegedly failing to utilise the state’s resources to transform the state.

Orji decried the poor state of infrastructure in the state, saying that Abia had not witnessed any meaningful development since he left office in 2007.

He expressed the hope that Ogah as a businessman would replicate his success story in his private business in governance, if elected.

In his speech, Ogah, an oil merchant, promised to make the people of Abia happy when elected.

“Abia rejoice! Your light has come and the glory of God has risen upon you,” he said, amidst loud ovations from his teeming supporters at the Umuahia Township Stadium, venue of the rally.

In a previous report by Legit.ng, the Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Organization (PPCO) accused the All Progressives Congress of allegedly attacking its Ondo state campaign office of presidential candidate, Abubakar Atiku.

The organisation made this accusation while describing the spate of violent attacks against its members as ominous signs for the 2019 general elections.

This was contained in a statement by director, media and publicity PDP presidential campaign organisation, Kola Ologbondiyan, on Thursday, January 10.
