The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council on Sunday said President Muhammadu Buhari loves the people of the South -East more than all his predecessors in office .
The council’ s President -General , Okechukwu Isiguzoro, said this in an interview with journalists in Abakaliki , Ebonyi State capital .
He was reacting to a statement credited to the President – General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief Nnia Nwodo , that Buhari was promoting ethnic division in the country.
He said , “ President Buhari loves the Igbos more than any other President Nigeria ever had.
“ In 2003 , he picked the late Chuba Okadigbo as his running mate .
In 2011 , he picked Edwin Ume- Ezeoke under the ANPP as his running mate .
“ He has shown so much love for the Igbos.
Buhari believes in one Nigeria, against what people like Nwodo are saying .
“ We believe that the President will do everything possible not to allow those who feel aggrieved by their past misfortune to ruin the fortune of the country. ”
Isiguzoro added that Buhari loves the people of South – East despite that the zone is traditionally for the Peoples Democratic Party .
He claimed that some state governors will soon join the APC.
