2019 Presidential Election....VON DG, Mr Osita Okechukwu Commends Governor Umahi’s support on President Buhari

www.odogwublog.com reports that the Director General of Voice of Nigeria [VON],Mr Osita Okechukwu has commended the Ebonyi state Governor, Chief Dave Umahi, for appreciating the developmental strides being executed by the President Muhammadu Buhari led  administration, and his[Dave Umahi] vow to vote for good governance of President Buhari in 2019, irrespective of his party of affiliation[PDP].


The VON DG,Mr Okechukwu poured encomiums on Chief Dave Umahi, while reacting to a statement credited to him in the media, where he was quoted to have said that he won't vote for PDP, his own party[PDP] in 2019 General elections but President Buhari, in view of the monumental projects being executed by his APC controlled Federal government.


In a press statement ,Okechukwu stated, 'I commend Governor Umahi, for appreciating the solid foundation being laid in the midst of poor revenue base, by President Muhammadu Buhari for progressive and prosperous Nigeria.


.'I'm happy that Umahi is one of thousands of Ndigbo who are coming to terms with the silent revolution going on."



The VON DG, who is also one of the Chieftains of APC in the South East zone,stressed that the party will welcome Governor Dave Umahi into it's fold,just as a former governor of the state,Chief Martin Elechi was welcomed.


  His words,'We'll welcome Umahi, We welcome Elechi and their followers; We shall at the appropriate time sit down and coordinate the way forward. I don't foresee much crisis. My happiness is that the surge of Ndigbo into the APC and by extension the support of the 2nd Term bid of Buhari is a prelude to the actualization of the president of Igbo extraction in 2023."

"This is why we are appealing to our brothers and sisters who are agitating for Biafra, to realise that a bigger, just and fair Nigeria is unfolding. All we require is patience."

"Am one of those who is of the candid view that the only way for Ndigbo to harvest from the subsisting zoning and rotation convention of the presidency is to support Buhari in 2019. It is timely as Ndigbo had supported and voted former presidents - Chief Olusegun Obasanjo and by extension Yorubas in 1999 and 2003 and Dr Goodluck Jonathan and by extension the South-South in 2011 and 2015. 2019 is Buhari's time to consolidate the war against corruption, restore peace in Nigeria and lay a level playing field for progress and prosperity.
