PDP should be ashamed of failing to zone presidency to SouthEast- Eneukwu
_Imo and Ebonyi are models of good governance-Arodiogbu
_Urges Igbo presidential aspirants to unite
The All Progressives Congress (APC) in the SouthEast Region of Nigeria has taken the opposition party to the cleaners accusing the party of neglecting the zone despite the level of support received from the zone.
This was the message of the Deputy National Chairman South of APC , Chief Emma Eneukwu.
Speaking at the first SouthEast APC Zonal Stakeholders meeting held in its secretariat in the SouthEast, Eneukwu described the 16 years of the PDP as years of waste as at today the party despite the fact that it benefitted handsomely from the votes of the region , failed it then and has continued to fail the zone by failing to reward the zone with the presidential ticket. He urged the zone to punish the party by voting massively for the APC which despite its poor performance in the zone had still invested heavily in infrastructure and other aspects of life.
The meeting which was well attended by party stakeholders from the five states that make up the zone saw Eneukwu charging party members to unite and shun infighting and anti party activities as well as work hard to ensure that APC wins Enugu and Abia in 2023.
In the same vein, the National Vice Chairman of the APC in the SouthEast, Dr. Ijeomah Arodiogbu stated that the time for change in the SouthEast Region of Nigeria had come . He stated that by looking at the development trends in Imo and Ebonyi States had qualified both states to become good governance models in the country. He stated that it was these good governance models that the Zonal Executive were committed to, and would seek to achieve this by presenting quality candidates who must go through a free and fair primaries.
He urged all party members to abide by the rules and regulations whilst vowing to invoke mechanisms of discipline to address any action that would be inimical to the party’s success.
On Igbo presidency, Arodiogbu agreed that the prevailing mood within the country was for the president to emerge from the SouthEast in order to help unite the country and reduce the various flash points of ethnic agitations, thus promising to work with the national leadership to ensure that the zone was not shortchanged by other zones which had in all instances had their fair share of producing the nation’s national leaders but were still warming up to contest again, however he called on all those contesting to work together and ensure that the zone put its best foot forward.
