Prince Ikonne has called on the APC to give president Buhari the chance to complete two tenures, saying this is all in the interest of Nigerians. The former commissioner who spoke during Buhari’s visit to Abakaliki urged the party to give Buhari a ticket for re-election.
Ikonne who is also a gubernatorial candidate vows to lead a 5 million March to plead with the president to seek re-election. Ikonne is also said to be the founder of Ndigbo for PMB 2019.
”The APC will win the presidential election in 2019 as long as Buhari remain’s the party’s flag-bearer. His support base is intact. Any Nigerian that wants to tell the truth will agree that he has laid a solid foundation. “Based on what I call the last mistake of 2015, where some Igbos didn’t vote President Buhari, I have formed a group called Ndigbo for PMB 2019, to avoid that mistake. The Igbos are part of Nigeria and we must remain part of Nigeria.
“We must be part of the national politics and be seen to be active in the Nigerian politics. So I am calling on all the Igbos to support Buhari this time; it is in their interest to support Mr. President. “So part of our programme as Ndigbo for PMB 2019, is to appeal to Mr. President to run for a second term and we will continue to appeal untill he accepts to run. ”God has given him good health and the purpose of that good health is not to abandon the country halfway, it’s to consolidate on the foundation he has laid so far.”
