The member representing Ohaoazara/Onicha/Ivo federal Constituency of Ebonyi State, Linus Abaa Okorie, has rubbished the promise of Igbo presidency in 2023 by President Muhammadu Buhari, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Okorie said such promise without bankable action was a pure deceit packaged to get undeserved sympathy and support in the zone in the 2019 general elections.
He said President Buhari’s failure to pick an Igbo man as his running mate like his Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) counterpart, Atiku Abubakar, exposed his promise of Igbo Presidency in 2023 as a pure deceit.
Okorie explained that only Atiku Abubakar’s promise of Igbo presidency in 2023 was trustworthy.
According to him, the former Vice President has not only picked Peter Obi, former Anambra governor as his running mate but has also pledged to govern the nation for only one term to pave way for Obi to take over.
The lawmaker who spoke Wednesday while addressing members of his Caringheart Foundation in Abakaliki called on the people of the South East all over the nation to queue behind Atiku/Obi ticket for the interest of the zone and the nation at large.
Okorie who is also the state Coordinator of Friends of Atiku enjoined all his supporters and loyalists under Caringheart Foundation to unite for Atiku and Obi ahead of the general elections.
