Nigeria News – Igbo Vote For Buhari Is A Wasted Vote – EPF
On Thursday, the Eastern Peoples Front (EPF), Igbo pressure group described Vice President Yemi Osibanjo’s comment on 2023 elections as provocative and vexatious.
The Vice President had postulated in Ibadan that President Muhammadu Buhari, after completing his two terms of eight (8) years in office, will hand over the presidency to the south-west.
National Coordinator & Leader, EPF, Elder Ken Emechebe said that the Vice President’s comment was an affront to the people of the South-East whose turn it is to produce the next Nigeria president when power returns to the south.
In Abuja, while speaking to journalists, Emechebe stated, ”We are not unaware of what this insidious campaign is all about. It is
“Osinbajo’s revelation that Buhari promised to hand over power to the Yoruba is instructive. The implication is that any Igbo vote for Buhari is a wasted vote.
“We want to make it clear to the daydreamers from the south-west that the political destiny of the Igbo does not rest in the hands one man or any individual, be it Buhari or any other person. The Igbo know what is best for them and will make their choice without intimidation or blackmail from the Osinbajo and Fashola of the South West.”
