The National Chairman of the United Progressive Party, UPP, Chekwas Okorie, has said President Buhari’s four years is a disaster, another four years for PMB will be Nigeria’s nunc dimittis.
Okorie said his party is in support of any move that will save the country from the bad governance of President Buhari even though the UPP has zoned its presidential ticket to the South-East geo-political zone.
He recalled that at the non-elective national convention of UPP, in Awka, Anambra State on June 29, 2017, the Convention ratified the zoning of the party’s presidential slot for the 2019 election to the South-East geopolitical zone.
The ratification by the highest organ of the party remains sacrosanct. It will take a duly convened National Convention to set it aside or modify it. The position is that a presidential candidate from the South-East geopolitical zone shall fly the UPP Presidential flag in 2019.
On the issue of devolution of power, referendum, state police and community policing, Okorie said, Gov. El Rufai is entitled to his opinion. He further stated that maybe the All Progressives Congress, APC, is stuck with President Buhari without any alternative option as a presidential candidate for the 2019 presidential election.
