We Don’t Lament Not Voting Buhari – Ndigbo

share on:

The head of Igbo socio-cultural organisation, OHANAEZE Ndigbo, has yesterday, revealed that it had no regrets not supporting the ambition of the All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari, during the March 28, 2015 presidential election.

The national treasurer of the group, Chief Damian Ogene, disclosed while speaking in an interview in Awka, that the apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation supported President Goodluck Jonathan because of what he described as Buhari’s negative antecedents to Ndigbo.

According to him, the rejection of Buhari during the presidential poll is to remind him of the injustices perpetrated against Igbo during his earlier tenure as military Head of State.

Ogene, however, said that since God had given Buhari an opportunity to be a democratic President of Nigeria, he should strive to right his earlier wrongs.

He said: “We are ready to co-operate with him and to believe in his administration in the hope that he will, this time, address the injustices meted out to us since after the Nigerian civil war.”
