Dozie Ikedife (jnr), the running mate to Dr. Tony Nwoye in the 2017 Anambra governorship election and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has received the declaration of President Muhammadu Buhari to run for a second tenure with excitement.
Ikedife told newsmen yesterday that he was excited that Buhari finally agreed to seek re-election in 2019.
According to him, it was an opportunity for Igbo to re-align with government at the centre to achieve their expectations as far as Nigerian project was concerned.
He said, “South East would give President Buhari more support now than ever before, without sentiment considering what he has done for the Igbo and what he will still do to show he cares for them.”
He regretted that the Igbo gave 99 per cent support to former President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration “and had nothing to show for it” while President Buhari, who the Igbo had not supported en masse in the first instance, had done more for the Igbo nation.
