Nwabueze, Others Endorsement Of Atiku, An Affront On The Igbo Nation, Says Apc

Filed in News by on November 15, 2018

The All Progressives Congress (APC,) has described as an affront on the Igbo people the reported endorsement of the Presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar by some south east leaders led by Chief Ben Nwabueze.

In his reaction to the endorsement on Wednesday, National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu said the Igbo people should not be fooled by any group, having been victims of underdevelopment under the PDP for 16 years.

He said south easterners have the three and half years of massive infrastructural development in the region to compare with the 16 years of waste they suffered under the PDP with decaying infrastructure.

Issa-Onilu said: “The APC considers Atiku and his PDP co-travellers as people who have lost any sense of shame. The purported endorsement of Atiku and PDP by some leaders of the South East for the 2019 general elections is an affront on the the Igbo people who were frontline victims of the 16 years of the PDP misrule.

“It will be interesting to know what the PDP will be telling the Igbo people during the campaign. The South East people have three and half years of visible progress in terms of massive infrastructure and the thousands of common people who are benefiting from the social programme investments under APC to compare to the PDP’s 16 years of retrogression.

“We in APC are confident that the Igbo won’t be fooled by any group, by whatever name, to sell a thoroughly discredited party like the PDP to the very discerning Igbo people.”
