It Will Be Unjust For The Southeast Not To Be Accommodated In The 9th Assembly! by Puouzoma: 5:26am On Jun 10
By Demian Igbokwe

The drum for support and political power-play of who and what zone gets what in the 9th Assembly is on-going, as the 9th Assembly is set for its inauguration on Tuesday this week.

In a brief interview with our correspondent in Abuja, Hon. Demian Igbokwe, an APC chieftain and National Coordinator of COALITION OF SOUTH EAST YOUTHS FOR BUHARI(COSYB),a Buhari Support Group that played a major role for Mr President in the 2019 General Elections,poured his heart out about the current happenings in the national politics.

We sought to know how he feels about the clamour for the Southeast to be accommodated in the 9th Assembly, Hon. Igbokwe has this to say:

“It’s against the federal character arrangement for this Administration to look the other way while the Southeast is sidelined in the helms of political affairs. It’s absurd for anyone to refer to the Southeast as a zone the nation can do without.

I am seeing a nation drifting into total disunity, and I am surprised that those running the system are very comfortable with it. It’s also very sad for anyone to subject the Southeast to the condition of begging to be accommodated. How do we reconcile the fact that the third leg of a tripod is being neglected in a nation State where the Igbo,the Yoruba and the Hausa/Fulani are the biggest three? Is it not funny that the Yoruba and the Hausa/Fulani want to take everything with what they have introduced as a new lexicon in our national politics? They ask:What did the Southeast bring to the table? When did that become a national benchmark for national inclusion on the basis of population, spread and just whatever?

“We have had Assemblies before this 8th and 9th. All the previous Assembly arrangements have been accommodative to all the zones of the nation, why would the 8th and 9th Assemblies be such a ridiculous set-up? If you have six or ten offices to share among six geopolitical zones,why would any zone take two at the expense of others?We can now see through the hypocrisy of some of our so-called leaders!When Sen.Ngige had failed to return to the 8th Assembly, the leaders of our Party were busy telling anyone who cared to listen that if only the former Governor had returned, he would have been automatically anointed President of the Senate. Compare then to now,how many Senators-elect do we have? It' s aIl cheap politics. I once heard my
friend from the southwest say that the Southeast didn’t vote APC and, as such, shouldn’t expect much.

Again,as I said before, I have always found that laughable, because, the Southeast voted for the APC, but results were written against APC by the Southeast PDP which, I believe, was done in connivance with a part of APC high command. I know what I am saying because I participated fully in the elections. I am not ashamed to say it,we from the Southeast played into the hands of those who do not want any good for us.”

“The INEC dribbling on Owelle Rochas Okorocha’s Certificate of Return, the INEC-mediated impasse on Sen. Ben Uwajumogu’s re-election and the speed with which the all-scarce Certificate of Return was issued to Hon. Emeka Nwajiuba of Accord,who came third in that election ,by the same INEC that are delaying that of Rochas after court ruling, while withdrawing that of Hon. Chike Okafor .All of these are a sad proof that somebody or a group somewhere does not want to see the Igbo in a major political position in the land and I am surprised that our leaders are not talking,they are all systematically gagged! All of these were orchestrated,in the first place,to quarantine the Southeast into a cull de sac from where we can merely plead,as we are doing,for a crumb from the master's table without a position in the next Assembly or any where that could offer us a strong leadership voice in the country.”

“From the arrangement on ground, the Muslim/ Muslim slot will tell badly of the next Assembly! The Senate President, a Muslim and the Speaker and his Deputy,from all indications, Muslims.
The Judiciary,another arm of government itself, is also headed by a Muslim;both at the level of the Supreme Court and the Court of Appeal.So what has happened to our balancing ideals in a secular State like ours? Or have we suddenly become an Islamic nation without knowing as some are wont to allege? APC, are we that insensitive to fundamental realities and nuances as a Party or are we condemned,cursed to make these mistakes that will never allow any escape route when President Buhari eventually ends his tenure in 2023? When that time comes,who will bail the cat for the APC?Among those currently on parade as national and regional leaders of the Party I see no head that can fly past all the realities I have itemised;unless and,of course,until the Party chooses to retrace its steps from the path of perdition that we have witnessed in recent times.Thank you."

Okorocha would have be a threat to them, but they intentionally hold his certificate of return. It was a game planned. FTC. Sheun no dey pay salary ni.

When the bullet coming to your house, you should have opened your mouth so that it can get in their and most times bullets don't kill lizards who think they can swallow fish without seeing pepper around the ground. If it was too early to get to church and made sure that you visited the mosque near Vatican city and nobody would have agreed that Beyonce was a chorister in deeper life before joining the super eagles to play under 5 would cup games. It is very certain that Abcha was not ready to looted this country in such a way that those money were misplaced by the thieves who forgot to steal from Nigerian Central shrine. But thank your God that you would have died early to save you the problem of being single without having any reason to be alive and see that bullets are not harmful to humans. But I know for sure you will not like the way this country will be managed by Trump is Buhari decides to rule USA and guess that Bobrisky will be the King of the North in GOT but he was busy playing UEFA Champions league that nobody gave him pass to even be chosen as a footballer. You all can disagree to play on the high pitch before riding the horse that might kill people.

Nobody accomodates anybody in an arrangement like this. You are to accomodate yourself in a popular arrangement. South East doesn't have a say in an APC dominated arrangement due to its own misdoing. So who's to be blamed?

Any APC member who dare suggests an arrangement for South East in this 9th assembly would be looked up to like a fool, because there's no way he can justify his suggestion. Its better to go with whats politically correct/accurate.

Only if the party wants to cede some position to PDP, but that arrangement would have been calculated to be beneficial to APC as a party and negotiations well done

Make una dey there make APC dey deceive unselfish, in 2015 the reason why they mentioned that senate President did not reach una was because there was no ranking Igbo senator in APC, then now there are ranking Igbo Senators in APC what now happens.

The southeast are their own enemies..
A vivid example is the case of Peter Obi who was hand-picked by Atiku..
Instead of rallying around one of their own they were busy questioning why he was chosen without their consultation..

They need to learn to achieve more together than looking for individual glory..

when pdp was in power all religions of the country was accommodated in all positions. Voting power were not considered, until the divide and rule group comes in ,we started hearing that are people that knows politics and others don't know. If an igbo man is billed to contest election in any of the political parties can fulani man vote him ?

Precedence have overtaken that arrangement. As we were getting into the 8th Assembly, the general understanding was that Since a 'hausa' is the president and a 'yoruba' is the vice, so automatically an 'igbo' should be the senate president. But since that wasn't possible as at that time, we got moved on with the understanding that it doesn't really have to be that way, it has to be populist agreement.

Same way majority of people from the Igbo extraction are of the opinion of dumping the arrangement of southerner taking over from northern presidency after this 2 term tenure. The former understanding has always been southerner taking over from a northerner, but that some are already working to truncate that arrangement. So political arrangement do change.
