A pro-Buhari group, One Destiny Organization (ODO), has thrown its weight behind President Muhammadu Buhari declaration to seek reelection for a second term in office.

The group also called on Igbo political leaders and youths to quickly queue behind President Buhari’s 2019 reelection bid to further brighten the chances of electing a Nigerian president of Igbo extraction in 2023.

In a statement made available to newsmen and signed by ODO’s National Coordinator, Ohiri O. Lewis, the group posited that Buhari remains the best option in terms of performance and credibility for the nation’s plum job considering his achievements in office.

“It is with great joy that all of us in One Destiny Organization (ODO) welcome the declaration of President Mohammadu Buhari to seek reelection as President and Commander-in-Chief of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. We ideally share the sentiment and clarion call by many Nigerians that President Buhari needs another four years after May 2019 to further stabilise the nation economically and otherwise,” Ohiri said.

Describing Buhari as the best material for the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Presidency come 2019, the Abia-born businessman cum politician expressed that President Buhari’s election about three years ago expediently marked a turning point in the political annals of the country hence his administration saved the entire nation from economic and infrastructural collapse.

“President Buhari’s election in 2015 was the only development in our political history that saved the nation from economic and infrastructural collapse. We can’t forget in a hurry how our national treasury was looted by the operators of the past administration to the extent that projects were no longer funded. But, it took the intervention of President Buhari and his dogged fight against corruption to rescue the country from such a disastrous collapse,” Ohiri said.

Also declaring ODO’s position on the age-long agitation for Igbo presidency, Ohiri alluded that President Buhari’s declaration has brightened the chances for Ndigbo to produce the Nigerian president come 2023.

While commending the former of Abia State, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu, for sensitising Ndigbo as well as proffering a clearer political direction to Ndigbo towards the actualisation of Nigerian president of Igbo extraction, Ohiri also enjoined the political and opinion leaders from south east to urgently queue behind President Buhari’s second term bid to among other political gains make the realisation of Igbo presidency an easy one in 2023.

He also described Kalu’s ongoing visit to political and traditional leaders from other geo-political zones as timely and strategic, adding that such political initiative will definitely reintegrate Ndigbo into the mainstream of the national polity.
