The Imo State governor, Rochas Okorocha, has said that Igbos would support President Muhammadu Buhari to serve for eight years, saying it is time the people of the South East united for the president.
Mr Okorocha stated this in a statement by his spokesman, Sam Onwuemeodo, at the end of the South East APC stakeholders’ meeting in Owerri.
“We are going to support President Muhammadu Buhari for the eight years he is going to lead the nation. This is the time for Ndigbo to come and work together.
“We are also going to use the Anambra election to show that the APC has arrived in the South-East. The Igbo played bad politics in 2015. Today, we have lost a lot. We are not anywhere because of our bad politics.
“Being the only APC governor in the South-East does not give me joy and I therefore advise other political leaders in the geopolitical zone to take the advantage of the moment and come into the APC.
