In his statement, he was quoted as saying, "Abu m onye Igbo, a bonafide Igbo man". "My name is Amaechi but President Jonathan who says his name is Azikiwe cannot speak Igbo." "If he says his name is Ebele, then let him speak Igbo". He further urged the Abia people to vote for Buhari as he was the change they seek.
