Ohaneze’s endorsement of Atiku is all chaff and no substance – President Buhari

President Buhari who spoke at a meeting with a select group of South-east leaders on Friday, at the State House, Abuja, said that the split within the Ohanaeze Igbo socio-cultural group over its reported endorsement of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, did not surprise him.

According to President Buhari, after the so-called resolution was announced, he got calls from well-meaning leaders from the region asking him to disregard it as it was without any substance. The Nigerian President further added that the APC got it right from the very beginning, and the major problems facing the country were mainly on security, corruption and the economy.

“From that moment, I knew that the resolution would not stand, and alas, there it was.”

“We have done so much. Given the chance, we will do more. Given every chance, we will tell Nigerians where we were in 2015 and what we have achieved up to now.

“We will not get tired of speaking about the golden opportunity Nigeria lost during 16 years of the PDP. We earned money, which we didn’t use,” he said.

“The state of infrastructure we inherited was terrible – no roads, the railway was killed and power. They lacked conscience because anybody with conscience will not do what they did. We will report them to Nigerians. Let anybody lead this country but not the PDP. They were so reckless with the resources of the country,” the President said.

“If you ruin the economy, send your children abroad to get education, won’t they come back?” he asked, adding: “I said it 30 years ago that this is the only country we have. We must stay here and salvage it together.”

  1. To be honest i neva knew buhari cud talk like dis…is it really him…cos he finds it difficult to even pronounce…issoryt

  2. There’s always division in a group,it’s not everybody in a group that will support a particular political party.Nigerians would elect the best candidate next year,no more mistakes.

  3. Why should it cause him sleepless nights, he should concentrate in fulfilling the duties of his office and alleviating the suffering of the masses. They have the right to exercise their franchise to whomever they want.

  4. We are all watching and we will know who is lying and who is to be trusted. 2019 is just around the corner.

  5. Most time you don’t judge people by their past but focus on what they can do for now andbtye future

  6. Election or no election,everything is already plan. Without even making any speech,he already tabled everything

  7. Saboteurs everywhere imagine the same people who were among those who endorsed Atiku are the same people who called the President and said all sorts of rubbish they like.

  8. His Excellency Mrs president,
    You are old enough to go and enjoy your wealth, leave your opponent to take over lets see how the country will be.
    Thanks

  9. Mr President Nigeria problems goes beyond corruption, insecurity and the economy with this three year of hunger and abject poverty we believed you don’t have any solution to this peoblem and we have not seen any traces of you helping us out of this problem ,but to continue to blame the past government anyway next election would determined if you are still wanted or not

  10. All what Buhari government has been doing four the past years is to put blame on the past administration, we have heard enough of this..

  11. When they say the suffering PDP put us since 16years I wonder cos all these APC people were the PDP of then. We should be wise in this country. People want where it will favour them. This is someone that was the president of this country in 80’s still want to lead us in 2019. Are we going forward or backward?

  12. Politics is politics ,it’s a dirty game and that’s what they r playing… Nigeria has suffered too much.. If apc is complaining that they met a bad infrastructure which they claim PDP was at fault.. Then by now they should have given us a better solution then, the only thing they know is to put blame…oya show us you can do better nA… Instead poverty has increased in their tenure …they should do and go mbok

  13. The president is just saying arant nonsense bcus even after the PDP rule finished there haven’t been any developments instead corruption insecurity and bad economy has still taken it’s stand in this country,,I wonder what type of change he’s talking about

  14. With the height of poverty and hunger in this country, Mr President, where exactly did you get it right? I think your old stricken body needs some rest and not problems of this country to avoid stories that touches the heart. Let whoever endorse whoever they dim fit, it’s not your choice to make and we need no explanation to that.

  15. I think mr president is a little bit startled with this development… He has suddenly developed cold feet lol…

  16. Abeg Oga go and sit down and stop being unnecessary jealous please it will do u no good on ur health Dan harm

  17. This promose of change from the Nigerian president has been long awaited because we haven’t seen much of done as promised earlier.

  18. I trust my fathers and brothers. They’ll only deceive you for the now like they’re behind you come 2019. The sooner you realise that the better for we all in this country

  19. Mr. President get ready to leave aso rock villa instead of wasting your time running your mouth. You are only showing how fearful you are of the her PDP presidential candidate.

  20. Nigeria is fall with corruption, even when we votend for our choice and it happens to win they will still give us the wrong person all we need in this country is God, prayer is our key because God big pass them.

  21. Ohhh God…please just stop
    They always tell us about how perfect they are and how imperfect PDP were…in the real sense you all are the same…..
    I sense fear in this statement..is ur party scared of losing???Anyway my own is that God should give us good leaders come next election

  22. Ohaneze division is expected, their son is the vice presidential aspirant thus am not expecting them to support anyone else or APC

  23. endorsements or no endorsement, the best player will surely win. personally, I would want the ruling party(APC)to continue from where they stopped,bcos since they emerged,there have been tremendous change.

  24. Politics, politics, politics. No matter what they say or who people vote, who will win will win and the suffering of poor masses continues.

  25. Instead of you to focus on how to tackle the problems in Nigeria…you are busy with ohanaze Atiku issues.

  26. Well said. Nigeria my country, I will always come back anywhere I go to salvage it together with other Nigerian

  27. Comment* instead of him to face the problem of this country how to solve it he will be busy with ohanaze Atiku issues

  28. What ever they want to say, they should say sha, me i need my own share of the money during election, after election we continue from where we stopped

  29. Why this present administration always appoints accusing fingers to others, if you have nothing to offer,just summit yourself by next or you resign now,you can put on somebody who they will support

  30. Mr president God is with you because you have clean mind and may God Almighty gives you more strength to direct us to the right path ijmn

  31. What we should be looking towards is the best for this country and we cannot get it by ourselves except God intervention.

  32. Talk is easy and sweet…putting it into action is the watch word. Coming 2019,APC will still flag as president is already declared the winner

  33. One thing am sure another this country is that the citizens have no right who leads, but those on the seat is the only people who have the right to select who leads

  34. I personally advocate for the change in holdership of political powers. But we can’t be too believing in what our president says

  35. I think we just need to see a new set of people to check out what they have for us, we have seen you and what you have

  36. This is what they’ve been saying that we lost good opportunities for 16years . Since this new party came me I’ve not seen anything. Even the 30k minimum wage is a problem if something as simple as that cannot be done so is it This Large country that will be fixed In the Next 4year ? I’m still watching

  37. Buhari should concentrate on the problems Nigeria is facing right and leave Ohaneze alone. Time will tell

  38. The endorsement is a landmark achievement by the atiku campaign organization. We shall see how thing go in 2019.

  39. Talking about sending their children out to school out they, where did your daughter and son, school? London abi!
