All Progressives Congress, APC, governorship candidate for Enugu state, Senator Ayogu Eze has dismissed as totally false insinuations that he is opposed to groups and other persons supporting President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019.

Reacting  to a publication in Nation of 26 November 2018, the Ayogu Eze Campaign Organization said the newspaper created the impression that Sen. Ayogu Eze was opposed to others supporting President Buhari in next year's election. 

“Nothing can be further from the truth. Zikist-Buhari Movement, in its statement to The Nation, twisted a statement Sen. Ayogu Eze made during the Vice President’s commissioning of the Buhari Campaign Office in Enugu to the effect that Sen. Eze was against more support for President Buhari.

“Sen. Eze in assuring the President of 90% votes in Enugu and the South East, referred to governors who on their visits to the President, bargained for the retention of their seats to give the President 25% of votes in their States.

“The Ayogu Eze Campaign Organization was assuring the President that it would get 90% of votes in Enugu State, way beyond the 25% promise of the governor. It was clear that the reference was to the visit of governors, not to other groups supporting the President.

“Nowhere in his speech did he refer to groups and organizations like ZBM that are mustering support for the President.

“There is no way we would have opposed more support for the President when it is on record that we are the first to commission a campaign office for him.

“Our point is clear – APC has great chances of winning governorship and other elective positions in the South East. Nobody purporting to support the President should halt the progress of APC in the South East, when the party has capacities to win more votes than the 25% the governors are promising.”

The statement was signed by Okey Ezirigwe for Ayogu Eze Campaign Organization.
