The displeasure communicated by Ohanaeze Ndigbo over a remark by Transportation Minister, Rotimi Amaechi that the South East individuals won’t produce Nigeria’s President in 2023 seems to have been irritated with a new remark by the party’s suspended secretary, Uche Okwukwu.
According to Ripples Nigeria this came as Okwukwu, in an announcement on Monday pronounced that Amaechi was right with his attestation. He contended that the South East district of Nigeria for not voting in favor of President Muhammadu Buhari and the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), have therefore to a huge degree, by omission or commission, shut themselves out of the administration in 2023.
He revealed that Ohanaeze Ndigbo and a few people from South East had kicked and attacked Amaechi for as of late saying that Ndigbo made it quite impossible for them to win the Presidency in the following four years by the job they played in 2019 general elections.
Be that as it may, in an announcement made accessible to newsmen in Port Harcourt, Rivers State capital, on Monday, the suspended secretary of Ohanaeze said Amaechi was right. Amaechi’s announcement is right since they double-crossed him, they had therefore deceived Ndigbo.
He added that they more likely than not remembered the occasion prompting the perplexity, where a socio-cultural association adopted President Muhammadu Buhari without giving Amaechi the chance of partaking in the party of Ndigbo. He added that Amaechi was an Igbo man. And he had proven that by saying that he was one.
He then questioned their reason preventing him from being included in the gathering that purportedly supported Buhari and later stopped him from displaying his very own bulk to the Igbo.
He added that regardless of whether they concured or not, governmental issues is reality. By not voting in favor of Buhari and denying him any presence in Igboland, they have to a huge degree, by exclusion or commission, shut themselves out of the administration in 2023.
Also implying that regardless of whether they went to the APC convention or not, Igbo can’t win the primary in the APC. and this is basically because they have no senator, governor and no back bone in the APC, he explained that it was a very bitter truth, but it as actually the truth.
Okwukwu had also gone ahead to say that Amaechi’s anticipated declaration such that Ndigbo had by a demonstration of oversight or commission shut themselves out of the administration come 2023 is only reality,
Ohanaeze Ndigbo had transparently pronounced their all out help for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, in 2019 general election.
The affirmation may have also clarified the reason why Buhari lost election in all the five states of the region. The APC, prior to the election controlled one state in the zone, but unfortunately lost the state, Imo to the PDP and now controls no state in the South East.
