Kano State Governor and Chairman, APC South East Peace and Reconciliation Committee, Alhaji Abdullahi Ganduje, yesterday, said the South East geo-political zone could return to mainstream Nigerian politics if they vote for President Muhammadu Buhari and other APC candidates in the 2019 general elections.

Ganduje, who addressed a peace and reconciliation meeting in Enugu, said they were working with the objective to return the South-east zone to mainstream Nigerian politics.

He recalled that efforts were made in 1979 to return the zone to mainstream politics since there was love between former President Shehu Shagari and his Vice, Alex Ekwueme (now late).

Ganduje said but for the military intervention, Shagari would have handed power to Ekwueme at the end of the administration.

He said on two occasions, Buhari ran for presidential elections in the past and chose Igbos as running mates, but he was not given the opportunity to win.
