A former governor of Abia state, Orji Uzor-Kalu, said President Muhammadu Buhari should have stopped former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, from leaving the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Kalu noted that the former Vice President would have stayed if he was given a Ministerial slot.
Kalu also said Buhari should be more interested in the activities of the ruling APC.
“The President should have consulted the governors in appointing men like Kwankwaso, Atiku into the system. He should have given them a Ministerial position to pacify everybody and call governors to bring five names of candidates for a Ministerial slot, that way democracy becomes a participated one.
“I’m not scared of PDP coming back in 2019, they can’t return because no international agency likes them and they insisted PDP be pushed away.
“All I know is that Buhari remains one candidate that has 10 million followership even in the South East.
“Even if South East has been marginalised, Buhari has done better than past Presidents that emerged from the South East.”
