The All Progressives Congress (APC) House of Representative candidate in Anambra State for the February 16 general election, Engr Jude Onyeka, has called on Igbo people to vote for the return of President Muhammadu Buhari.
He said that a victory for APC presidential and national assembly candidates in the state will give Igbo people a voice in the polity.
Onyeka, who is vying to represent Nnewi North/Nnewi South and Ekwusigo Federal Constituency at the green chambers of the National Assembly, promised to make a difference, if elected.
He said: “The Igbos would have much to gain, if President Muhammadu Buhari is reelected.
APC victory at the polls would lay to rest, all complaints of not having enough from the federal government.
“The Igbos would not only have greater voice in the house, but would avoid past mistakes.
“The Igbos will have a lot to gain, if they can vote APC all through especially for presidential and National Assembly in the five States of the South East to be part of the majority and have more voice.”
Addressing journalists at his campaign office in Ozubulu, Ekwusigo Local Government Area, Anambra State, Onyeka observed that with APC president and majority of the APC lawmakers in the National Assembly from the South East geo-political zone, it will give the Igbo a strong bargaining power in national politics.
While saying that such majority power will give Igbos a better opportunity to demand and receive more infrastructural development and other democracy dividends with ease, Onyeka said that it would be a miscalculation if Easterners fail to grab the opportunity given them in a platter by APC to be part of the “envisaged majority in the National Assembly.”
The House of Reps candidate added: “Ndigbo stand to gain by supporting the APC in the upcoming elections. When you have a President who is an APC man and lawmakers of Igbo extraction who are members of the APC, for us, there will be that synergy and cooperation.”
