PDP Made Southeast Land Of Abandoned Projects, UPP Chairman Alleges by Agritech(m): 8:22am On Nov 24, 2018
The National Chairman of the United Progressives Party (UPP), Chief Chekwas Okorie, yesterday accused the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of not having anything to show in the South east for the support the people gave the administration for 16 years.

Rather, he alleged that the PDP-led Federal Government ensured that the entire southeast zone became one large area of abandoned construction works.

At a press conference in Enugu, after leading a pan-Igbo organization, the Igboezue Cultural Advancement Initiative (ICAI), which he founded, to adopt President Muhammadu Buhari as their candidate in the 2019 presidential election, Okorie alleged that PDP deliberately kept southeast out of the scheme of things.


“If this is not deliberate, then what will be the explanation for the very painful fact that in 16 years, there is no project that was started and completed by the PDP government in any part of the southeast geo political zone? We are aware that the PDP has an unwritten policy that no Igbo person will ever be the president of Nigeria until 150 years after the Nigeria-Biafra war.

“The manner in which the military junta of Abdulsalam Abubakar presided over the massive deceit of the entire Igbo people by the PDP in the short-changing of the late Dr. Alex Ekwueme in his bid to become the party’s presidential candidate in 1999 is an unprecedented and biggest political 419 ever perpetrated against any race in Nigeria by a political party and its military sponsors,” he said.

Okorie spoke as the Director General of the Voice of Nigeria (VON), Mr. Osita Okechukwu commended Southeast governors for what he described as their wisdom and pragmatism, as evidenced in the meeting they held with President Buhari on Wednesday night.

In a statement in Enugu yesterday, Okechukwu also thanked the Secretary to Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha for reminding Ndigbo at the occasion for the second time that Buhari’s victory presents the quickest route to Nigeria president of Igbo extraction in 2023.

angry

Mmba

Please don't listen to the vote splitting agent

We ibos love being deceived by our darling PDP, just like we love Jonathan for his phantom Second Niger bridge project cheesy

We know you have said the bitter truth because there's enough evidence throughout the Southeast, but we just want to fill top positions in Nigeria to spite certain people.

More importantly, when push comes to shove we can always claim that we are being victimized by the Northerners and the Yorubas rather than take responsibility for our actions.

Hence, we are voting a man from the Fulani tribe that we have spent the better part of three years insulting. grin

Good one, same with SouthWest.. Lagos - Ibadan, Oyo- Ogbomosho roads were abandoned Death trap(Saraki and PDP senator even continued to cut the budget). Obasanjo didn't open any new road in SouthWest for 8 years PDP even blocked Ogun state from having an Airport. At least we quickly voted out the wicked yahoo yahoo party and we would soon be enjoying state of the art standard gauge railway connecting 3 out of 6 SouthWest States while works had started on all our federal highway, I hope SouthEast realise PDP don't mean well

I'm going to say this without being apologetic!

The igbos are the most politically unwise and ignorant tribe in Nigeria!

It saddens my heart on how they play politics of Hatred and sentiment!

I used to think a larger number of this tribe was educated but the ones on Nairaland have proven me wrong!

In fact, Igbos who are not resident in the SE are much wiser , more educated and less ignorant than the ones who grew and reside in the SE!

PDP ruled for 16 good years, yet they did nothing good for the SE region rather they milked the region dry and plundered it! How brainwashed could they ever get!

The Igbos , by hating other tribes, insulting other tribes, Don't know what they are doing to their generations yet unborn politically. I pray they realise this earlier then make amends!

Now the North is being careful not to tilt towards Atiku because of Obi, Obi is a very very very very brilliant candidate, but the igbos have so insulted the North that the Northerners see OBI as an enemy to the state!

For the SW region everyone is beginning to have a dislike for the Easterners cuz of their unwholesome attitude!

IT IS HIGH TIME THE IGBOS HAD A RETHINK!

GOD BLESS NIGERIA

APGA knew that Chekwas was a sellout, and that was why he was kicked out of the party as their chairman. He has since been roaming in political wilderness, and the only way to gain popularity is to go against the mainstream politics of the people.

Lets see if he can garner 100 votes for Buhari grin

Should they now vote for an ethnocentric tribalist and bigot buhari who insulted them and marginalized them worse than PDP did and even threatening to politically emasculate them by appointing 90% of core appointees from the north. If not for the constitution checkmating him, he would have appointed 100% from daura.

No! Dumbohari has to go. The devil is far better than dumbohari.

The north that has led this country more, what has the region gotten? Death upon death, hunger upon hunger, illiteracy upon illiteracy.

OBJ is from south west and led this country for more than 8 years, did he turn south west to Canada?

Abi no be Ile Ife I go the other day? Abi no be Ibadan I dey since? Abi no be Akure I enter few months back?

GEJ was president for 6 years, what did he do for south south?

U see guys, these leaders are playing with us. U guys think appointment is dividend of democracy..

Abeg, make i do leave naija jareee, both the leaders and the led are myopic.

We yorubas here and jumping up in joy, supporting and proclaiming Chekwa Okorie (who has absolutely no political value) as greater than Awolowo for making pro-dumbohari statements.

We claim the East is politically 'unwise' because they have refused to vote an ethnocentric religious bigot like boohhari, yet they are better in all ramifications than we yorubas. The essence of politics everywhere in the world is development but the politically 'unwise' Igbos are according credible statistics more educated than we yorubas, more intellectually capable (see WAEC and Jamb stats), their children are healthier, their Eastern zone is the most secured in the country (see UN stats), they hardly have mud houses without toilets as seen in Ibadan, Oshogbo, ogbomosho and co.

So the question begs- how have our political 'wisdom' as yorubas made us better than Igbos who are 'politicall unwise' when yoruba Oyo and Osun state rank lower than some northern war torn states in education and pass rate, with ritualists and skull miners are running amok in yorubaland. Not to forget that these same Igbo 'unwise' politicians are getting elected as political leaders by Europeans and caucasian in Italy, Poland, US, UK etcs.
