The All Progressives Congress, APC, Ebonyi chapter, has expressed its support for the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019.

“The Ebonyi chapter of APC would throw its full weight behind the President should he declare interest to run again,’’ Acting Chairman of the party, Eze Nwachukwu, said on Thursday.

Mr Nwachukwu said in Abakaliki that the party took the decision after close assessment of the achievements of the present administration especially in, job creation, economic revitalisation, agricultural revolution and war against corruption.

The chairman said the national leadership of the APC should prevail on the President to go for second term.

“We have assessed the achievements of the present administration and have come to an undeniable truth that Mr President has done so much in areas of physical infrastructure, war against financial graft, job creation, economic repositioning among others.

“It is only natural that the President is given another opportunity to consolidate on the gains so far made in enthroning genuine democracy and putting the nation’s economy on the paths of economic growth.
