Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that the G-23, a pro-Buhari group, said that Igbo would vote for President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019, so that power would be zoned to the south-east in 2023.
The group stated this via its south-east convener, Johnbosco Onunkwo, during a chat with newsmen in Port Harcourt, Rivers state, on Saturday, September 1.
Onunkwo said Igbo would not repeat the mistake they made in 2015, when they supported former president Goodluck Jonathan on the basis of regional consideration, and neglected broad-based politics.
