With adequate funding of South-East APC Presidency Project 2023, the South-East will win 2023 Presidency through collective and mass movement approach.
Woe betide any South-Easterner who will be used by enemies of Nigeria to try and scuttle emergence of President of Nigeria of South-East extraction in 2023.
Anyone that our Project finally settles for as our sole presidential aspirant must be supported by all South-Easterners. It is the most realistic way the South-East would produce President Buhari’s successor.
We are sorry for anyone who thinks that President Buhari or any other individual(s) will make him president, for which certain individuals have started scamming naive and gullible South-Easterners of billions of naira.
The scammers include emirs, obas, igwes, native doctors and religious leaders. They also include individuals claiming to have the ears of President Buhari. Their mugus include current South-East governors, ministers, ex-this/ex-that of the South-East and wealthy South-Easterners.
The naive and gullible South-Easterners have already wasted billions of naira on their tomfoolery and will waste billions of naira more before they wake up from their daydreaming.
Listen; no one – certainly not a South-Easterner for quite obvious reasons – will win 2023 Presidency by hijack or dubious secrecy.
The only way for us to win is through credible mass movement for our collective agenda – started in the South-East and supported by the good peoples/masses (not just the so-called power brokers) of the other five geopolitical zones.
Instead of wasting those billions of naira on dubious schemes that they think will make them President, and being mocked behind their backs by their scammers, South-Easterners should invest in the mass movement called South-East APC Presidency Project 2023.
The mood of the masses of Nigeria who hold over 95% of the votes is for emergence of President of Nigeria of South-East extraction. We are on the ground and know so to be true in the North-West, North-East, North-Central, South-West, South-South and South-East.
Why then the chicken-heartedness and recourse to scheming that is anything but democratic and credible?
Why the delusion that ‘they’ will not ‘give’ the Presidency to the South-East? There is no ‘they’ to ‘give’ the Presidency to you, you or you. Who gives power to anyone on a platter? Who does that.
The South-East must brace up to win power by democratic means. Do not deceive yourselves that votes won’t count. Votes have always counted and will count if you vote and protect your votes. Vote first, protect your votes and, if need be, be prepared to defend our votes in the court of law.
From 28th June 2021, we besiege millions of our supporters who have not registered to vote to do so. If you have registered and need to transfer your voter registration to where you will vote in 2023, do so now. Then, keep your Personal Voter’s Card (PVC) in a safe and secure place for the E-Day.
We are lobbying for votes at both primary and general election. At primary, we intend to win with about 70% of the delegate votes cast.
And APC must understand that, with our target of over 50 million votes, its success in the 2023 presidential election depends only on fielding a South-Easterner and one preferred by South-Easterners themselves.
But if enemies of Nigeria within APC try to block emergence of a South-Easterner as its 2023 presidential flagbearer, we shall take our over 50 million voters to another party and win the Presidency for that other platform – however small it may be now. And we cannot see APC surviving as a party after that.
Head or tail, we shall win for survival of our party and for survival of Nigeria itself. Only emergence of President of Nigeria of South-East extraction can guarantee survival our party and Nigeria.
And we must win by a mass movement of the young and old, men and women of Nigeria; not by a handful of individuals who think erroneously that they own Nigeria.
President of Nigeria of South-East extraction on whatever party platform we adopt will be for all Nigerians and not for a handful of individuals.
Support our mass movement and our eventual landslide victory at the poll. It is even cheaper this way than being scammed by political 419ers in the Villa and elsewhere.
