Emeka Ojukwu who is the son of the late Dim Emeka Odumegwu Ojukwu has explained that he decided to support President Muhammadu Buhari for the benefit of Ndigbo.

He explained that his decision to join the All progressives Congress (APC) was to follow in his father;s footstep as he would have done same.

He explained that shortly after his father’s return from exile in 1982, he joined the National Party of Nigeria rather than the Nigeria Peoples Party.

He said: “I can afford to stay back (in APGA) and wallow in sentimental politics that nkea bu nkeanyi (this is our own), but in the long run, what becomes of our tomorrow and place in the great Nigeria project, for which our forefathers laboured, invested their time, talent and even their blood?

“Which is preferable: to be a big fish in a small pond or a big fish in the ocean? Real champions are never afraid of the big league.

“That could be why late Dr. Chuba Okadigbo, asserted that if you cannot reason beyond petty sentiments, you are a liability to mankind. Nd’Igbo are not better off with emotional politics.”

On Governor Willie Obiano, Ojukwu’s son said: “the governor is still playing kindergarten politics.”

“So, while they seek to crucify me for joining APC, they express support and solidarity for the APC leader.

“Which is worse, to walk the talk or pander to politics of deceit and duplicity?

“What is the essence of being in a party that would rather support the presidential candidate of another party than choose its own?”

“Having supported Presidents Olusegun Obasanjo and Goodluck Jonathan in office, Nd’Igbo have decided to support President Buhari in the spirit of fairness and political goodwill.”

We had reported that Ojukwu's son explained that the Igbos are part of the APC and must be well positioned to benefit from governance.

He said: “I decided to lead by example. I have been talking about this for a while and I decided it was time to take the step forward.”

“It is a challenge, there are some people that will not be happy about that. But you have to be bold, take a step and let people understand where you are coming from and why you are doing what you are doing."
