Shehu Shagari had Intentions of Supporting Ekwueme to Become President – Ganduje

The Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and former Governor of Kano State, HE Abdullahi Ganduje in Anambra state while addressing the audience at a significant empowerment gathering in Nnewi, facilitated by Senator Ifeanyi Ubah, Ganduje emphasized the importance of the South-East region aligning closely with the central government by embracing the APC and electing governors from the party across all five states.

“If not that the military struck, your son, Alex Ekwueme would have become the president.” Ganduje said at mega empowerment rally in Anambra.

He mentioned that due to the dedication of the Igbo people to the governing party at that time, former President Shehu Shagari was showing positive interest and was seriously contemplating Ekwueme as his potential successor.

Ganduje said: “You know when your brother, Alex Ekwueme was the vice president to our brother, Shehu Shagari. The body language was there, and if not that the military struck, your son, Alex Ekwueme would have become the president.

“I tell you this story because the road to political freedom is to key into the ruling party, and once you do that, marginalization would be a thing of the past.”

Impressed by the extensive attendance at the empowerment rally, Ganduje remarked that based on his observations, Ifeanyi Ubah’s mobilization efforts and acceptance in Anambra, the South East region is poised to actively engage in mainstream politics.

“We are astonished at the crowd that attended this rally. Our renewed hope agenda is to bring the South-east into the mainstream politics. This is not an ordinary rally, but one for empowerment, and we have been informed that everybody here today will must go back with something.

“I have seen thousand of motorcycles, tricycles, buses, generators, grinding machines, bags of rice and other food stuff that will be distributed, and we thank Senator Ifeanyi Ubah for this,”
