The National Vice Chairman of the PDP for South East, Austin Umahi, has said the claim by Babatunde Fashola that President Muhammadu Buhari will return power to the South West in 2023 should serve as an eye opener for the Igbo people in the APC.
Fashola, the minister of power, works, and housing, had while speaking at a special Town Hall Meeting on infrastructure organised by the Ministry of Information and Culture and the National Orientation Agency on Thursday called on the people of the South West to support Buhari’s second term bid in order to regain power in 2023.
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.”
“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,” he added.
