South East suffering worst political exclusion, Ohuabunwa alleges
Immediate past representative of Abia North in the National Assembly, Chief Mao Ohuabunwa, says the South East is allegedly suffering worst political exclusion under the current All Progressives Congress administration in the country.
He claimed that the ruling party had schemed so much to dislodge the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from its strongholds.
Reacting to boast by some APC bigwigs to deliver the zone in 2023, Ohubunwa stated that it would be difficult for any political group to displace PDP in the region.
Rather than dislodge his party, the senator said the APC would lose what he described as its “negligible presence due to the growing visibility of the PDP in the zone.”
His words: “The South East zone has suffered the worst political exclusion in Nigeria’s political history under the watch and government of the APC, hence it (APC) cannot under this scenario win the support of right-thinking people of the zone.”
Ohubunwa challenged the ruling part to flaunt its “achievements and firm presence in the zone.”
He added: “Over 90 per cent of federal projects and presence in the zone were those effected during the tenure of past PDP governments.
“APC is therefore the least party the South East can contemplate of embracing because it has offered nothing but insult, vexation, neglect and malicious exclusion of the zone from the scheme of things in the country.”
On defection of some PDP stalwarts, the Abia native asserted that the stock of political elite in the zone remained rooted with his party.
