Ogbonnaya onu, Ken Nnamani insist on South-East presidency




Ogbonnaya Onu, the immediate past Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation, has raised concerns over sidelining the South-East in the current All Progressives Congress APC presidential political primary.

In a similar vein, the former Senate President Ken Nnamani, also from the South-East, expressed worry about efforts to distort justice at the ongoing political primary.

Both Party Chieftains who spoke at the ongoing convention said justice must be upheld as a foundation for the growth of the All Progressives Congress.

In a separate remark, Ogbonnia Onu said the efforts and commitments of the South-East people must not be relegated.

He said, “Justice must be upheld. Our Motto in APC is Justice. Where there’s justice, there’s peace. We must uphold justice and not overlook the South-East presidency.

Onu said that God created Nigeria to be a nation among nations and must embrace justice to achieve its greatness.

Onu whi is a presidential aspirant, also said his government will create N1 trillion trust fund for youth job creation and driving science and innovation.

“Everyone knows the role I play in forming APC. I believe the President has done very well. We must ensure, that justice is upheld”, he stated when he was making his final address to the delegates.

Naturally, it should be somebody from the South East that should take over from the President.

Onu ended his remarks by screaming, “where is the justice” continuously before his allotted few minutes elapsed.

Ken Nnamani, in his remark also in swift support for a South-East Presidency, said if the ruling APC jettisons justice and looks away from a South-East Presidency now, the party will pay dearly for it in the future.
