The Governor of Imo State, Hope Uzodinma on Wednesday expressed disappointment over the failure of the South-East to clinch the presidential ticket of the All Progressives Congress.
According to Uzodinma, the South-East has been denied the opportunity to produce the next president under the ruling party due to a lack of equity.
The APC governor while speaking with Channels TV further stated that the region can not produce the next president of Nigeria due to injustice.
Uzodinma in his statement said, “From the view of political calculation, the sentiment of the people in the south-east is that they deserve to produce the president because the reason why this power is moving from the north to the south is that the current president is from the north having served for daughter years.
“The reason why the south-east is asking for it is that when the power came to the south it went to the south-west and was there for eight years and the next time it came to the south it went to the south-south and it was there for seven years plus.
“The natural thing to do and the justice of the case is that now that power is coming again to the south and since it is only three geo-political zones that made up the south, it should come to the south-east, having been in the south-west and south-south.
“In a situation where equity should be the issue we (south-east) don’t need to struggle for it. But here again, you see how it has come. We will continue to hope that one day God will touch the heart of our brothers and sisters to do that which belongs to us.”
