''Igbos Will Benefit More If President Buhari Leaves Office''- Obasanjo

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo while speaking at a meeting of the Coalition of Nigerian Movement CNM in Awka, Anambra State, yesterday has said that Nigerians from the South East region will benefit the most if President Buhari is voted out of office in 2019.

He also declared that he is not in support of President Buhari's re-election bid, yesterday said voting President Buhari out come 2019 is in the best interest of the Igbos.

Speaking through the South East coordinator of CNM, Dr. Okey Nwosu, the ex-president said:  

“The meeting is a wake-up call for Nd’Igbo to dump APC and collaborate with CNM, which is the best alternative for their rescue from poverty, hunger, recklessness and ethnic cleansing in the hands of the Hausa/Fulani marauders. Every Nigerian leader is very much embarrassed with the state of the nation where people are attacked, killed, raped and made refuges in their own homes.

Political leaders must advocate action against these senseless killings and seek how to design a new democratic action plan to ensure we take care of this conundrum democratically, and say, ‘Enough is enough.’ If unchecked, these unethical activities will lead to the destruction of the country. It does not augur well for Nigeria’s development.” he said
