Igbo Presidency: South-East Are Left Heartbroken By APC, PDP – Nwodo

Former Governor of Enugu State, Okwesilieze Nwodo, believes the outcome of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and All Progressives Congress presidential primaries has left the people of the South East sad (APC).

The results of the primaries, according to Nwodo, have saddened Igbos who had hoped that the two parties would give justice and allow the zone to produce its own presidential candidates.

He said this over the weekend in Abuja at a brief thanksgiving event for Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu, the immediate past Minister of Science and Technology.

The people of the South East, according to Nwodo, are dissatisfied with the way the two major political parties have neglected the need for an Igbo presidency.

He said: “Many of us from the South-East believe that after a presidency from the north, the presidency should return to the south and if it came to the south, one of the zones that it should go to is the south-east.

“We felt that it is a fact and that fact is looking for justice, looking for fairness and looking for equity. So if you go to the south-east, those of us in the PDP feel devastated because we have given that party our all and when it threw the presidency open, jettisoning our constitution, which is based on rotation and zoning of political offices, we were traumatised and still devastated after the primaries.

“Again, we looked forward that APC will zone the presidency to the south, since the Presidency has been in the north, and what they appeared to be doing was justice and we were hoping that justice will end up in the South East, but we saw how it ended.”

Nwodo remarked that justice must be served to all citizens of the country, emphasizing that the fight for the Igbo presidency would not be done until it was.

He went on to say that if the PDP wins the presidency in 2023, Igbos in the party would stay and work hard to ensure that Igbos receive their due share.

Nwodo also urged APC Igbo leaders to work hard to ensure that the people of the south-east do not face the same marginalization they had during the previous administration’s seven years.

“There must be justice to all its people not to some of its people. But you know, after all my efforts in the past few years to midwife an Igbo presidency which I look forward to being the highest achievement of my political career and see what happened so far.
