Anambra 2021: Uba’s Victory Will Facilitate Igbo Presidency-Osita

Anambra

Osita Okechukwu, a former aide of  President Muhammadu Buhari has stated that the victory of Senator Andy Uba in the November 6, Anambra State governorship election would facilitate an Igbo presidency in 2023.

The Director-general of the Voice of Nigeria (VON), and a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship campaign council for Anambra State, also said the recent endorsement of Uba’s governorship ambition by President Muhammadu Buhari had implications for Anambra State and Ndigbo.

Recall that President Buhari had in a meeting received the APC candidate for the poll, assuring him that he was optimistic about his success in the election.

Speaking with the press in Abuja on Thursday, September 2, Okechukwu said the endorsement gesture, acceptance and support by the president are signals to other good and correct political possibilities for the state, southeast and Ndigbo.

Okechukwu said: “With President Buhari’s endorsement of Senator Uba, it is now left to Anambra voters to endorse him, to facilitate Ndigbo’s quest to produce Nigeria’s president of Igbo extraction in 2023.”

Okechukwu remarked how pundits and eminent leaders of the party had decried the low electoral returns from the southeast. He said the low voter endorsement had been militating against the zoning of the presidential slot to the southeast, stressing that with Uba’s election as governor in November, nobody can obstruct the ceding of the presidential ticket to the southeast.
