As Nigerians prepare for the 2019 presidential elections, the Buhari Support Organisation (BSO) South East Zone has launched the Zikist-Buharist-Movement (ZBM), in order to ensure victory for the presidential candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC), President Muhammadu Buhari.
Our correspondent reports that the ZBM was launched at the South East Zonal Summit of BSO, held in Enugu at the weekend to mobilise APC members and non partisan Ndigbo at home and in the Diaspora to vote for Buhari
According to BSO, the development would reinforce their bid for Nigeria president of Igbo origin when it gets to the turn of Ndigbo in 2023.
Also, the BSO explained that as a pragmatist, the late Owelle of Onitsha, Nnamdi Azikiwe would readily have chosen President Muhammadu Buhari of APC who has uncommon cult followership in the northern belt, ahead of his Fulani kinsman, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The group said that while the Atiku restructuring slogan sounds appetizing, restructuring in its real sense cannot be achieved by Fiat-Executive Order, but by the cumbersome amendment process of the rigid 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
