Group urges southeast to support Buhari’s re-election
The Buhari Support Organisation, Enugu state chapter, has urged people of the southeast to show appreciation to President Muhammadu Buhari for the befitting burial he gave second republic vice-president, Alex Ekwueme, by supporting his re-election bid.
The group in a statement on Sunday, February 4, by its publicity secretary, Chibueze Eze, maintained that voting Buhari for a second term in 2019 will guarantee a president of Igbo extraction in 2023, the Punch reports.
The BSO commended the president for giving a befitting burial to Alex Ekwueme who served the country meritoriously as vice-president and in other capacities.
It thanked Buhari for renaming the Federal University in Ebonyi state after the late elder statesman, to immortalise him.
“We thank President Muhammadu Buhari for not only giving Ekwueme a befitting burial, but for also flying him to London for medical attention and capping it with renaming the Federal University in Ebonyi State after him,” the BSO said.
