The Abia state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has stated that northern Nigeria should be allowed to remain in power till 2023.
According to the party, even if Buhari refuses to run for a second term, the region must be allowed to complete its eight-year tenure.
APC publicity secretary in the state, Comrade Benedict Godson, while addressing newsmen in Umuahia on Wednesday, said the region is strongly behind the Buhari-led government.
He said, “APC in the state is in support of President Buhari administration and appreciates his love for the South East and what he is doing and nobody from Abia including Kalu wants to contest for the presidency in 2019. Even if Buhari would not want to re-contest, it is our belief that the North should be allowed to complete her tenure.”
Speaking further, Godson said those pasting Kalu’s posters in different parts of the country are hell-bent on causing disaffection between President Muhammadu Buhari and Kalu.
