Reacting to the claims by the Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, that President Muhammadu Buhari will return power to the South West in 2023, the National Vice Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, for South East, Deacon Austin Umahi has warned Igbos who are members of the ruling party nto be wiry of deceit.
Fashola had while speaking at a special Town Hall Meeting on infrastructure organised by the Ministry of Information and Culture and the National Orientation Agency held in Ibadan, Oyo State on Thursday called on the people of the South West to support Buhari’s second term bid in order to regain power in 2023.
Umahi described Fashola’s statement as an eye opener for the Igbo people in the All Progressives Congress, APC.
Speaking to newsmen, Umahi said, “That’s an eye opener to our so called brothers and sisters who are in the failed APC for their selfish interest and leaking pockets.”
He further stated that the statement by Fashola showed that the ruling party was disorganized and decietful.
“Most importantly, it is glaring that APC is drowning in all ramifications and Nigerians have rejected them and will demonstrate it in less than 112 days.
“Rebranded and repositioned PDP does not only have Nigeria collective interest but South East in particular.
“Am convinced that as a party built on fairness and equity, South East surely stands a better chance to take her equity share in Nigeria project come 2023, God’s willing.”
