Senator Victor Ndoma Egba, the Chairman of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) has stated that the Igbos should vote Buhari to produce next president in 2023.
The All Progressives Congress, APC, Senatorial candidate in Cross River State who spoke with journalists over the weekend, also told the south-easterners to go and organize themselves and ready itself for that opportunity.
Ndoma Egba said;
“Let me hazard what may happen and I think they will go with President Buhari.
“They are hoping to produce a President in 2023 and that opportunity can only come through a President Buhari because by the application of the law, come 2023, Buhari will become illegible to contest because he must end his tenure and that is when the south east can have their turn” he said.
“Any other person that comes, forget whatever promises they make. The moment they seat on that chair, they must take their constitutional two full terms. So, any other person will delay the chances for the south east. That is why I think the south east will go with President Buhari.
“It is not automatic though. We are talking about the opportunity and it is for the south east to go and organize themselves and ready itself for that opportunity.
“Will they have an opportunity in 2023 through President Buhari? The answer is yes, the opportunity will be there and you need to put your house in order. Will it be possible with other person in 2023 considering the fact that the person would have a constitutional two term. The answer is no.”
