Buhari Has Really Marginalized Ndigbo, I Regret My Role In 2015 Elections – Okorocha Confesses (MUST READ)
Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State Tuesday dispensed with partisan considerations to broach issues of core interest to the Igbo nation.
According to New Telegraph, the governor gave detailed account of marginalization of people of the South-East and Imo State when Acting President Yemi Osibanjo visited the state on strategic consultations.
His words: “No other group in Nigeria that had invested as much into our nationhood can sing the song of marginalization as much as Ndigbo has been made to sing it.
We have nothing to show that we are part of the Nigerian project; neither do we have any sense of belonging in the present government at the national level. “We have been marginalized both in terms of projects and appointments.
In Imo State, for instance, all we have is a Minister of State to show for all the efforts and extreme sacrifices we made to ensure that the All Progressive Congress (APC) had a good outing in the last general elections.”
“I beg that as the government gives subsequent appointments, let the qualified sons and daughters of the state and region be considered”.
