Speaking on behalf of the delegation, Imo State governor, Rochas Okorocha said although the region could not be delivered to Buhari in the presidential election, they were able to cutdown the damages over 7.2million votes the PDP had projected to get from the region.
While expressing hope that Buhari’s government will be successful and as well support the cause of the Southeast, Okorocha appealed that the region should be considered for the position of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation.
He continued that the South East region have also unanimously agreed that the former National Chairman of All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP), Ogbonnaya Onu should be elevated and be recognised as the leader of the party in the southeast.
In his remark, Ogbonnaya Onu, expressed that Buhari’s victory has brought respite to the entire nation.
Responding, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari thanked the delegation for the role they played in ensuring that it reduced the deficit of votes the PDP gathered in the region in the last election. He assured that his government will carry everyone along irrespective of race, region and tribe.
