At a political gathering where he was given the opportunity to speak, actor/politician, Kenneth Okonkwo, asked Nigerians to file behind President Buhari in the coming election. He particularly asked people in the South East to support President Buhari because if they don’t they would wonder in the South East for the next eight years:
''If the South East shall support any other person for the presidency, they are going to spend the next eight years in the wilderness. It hs been agreed that it is their turn after President Buhari. Our slogan is Ndigbo for Presidnet Buhari 2019 and then Presidnet Buhari for Ndigbo 2023''
