Listen to article

In Nnewi, the All Progressives Congress (APC) highlighted last Friday the serious marginalization of the South East region within Nigeria’s geopolitical landscape.

During a colloquium centered on “De-marginalization of the South East And Integration,” the APC publicly acknowledged the challenges faced by the region.

Senator Ifeanyi Ubah, representing Anambra South Senatorial District, played a pivotal role in organizing the event, which was orchestrated by the APC.

In its assessment, the party lamented the enduring marginalization of the South East in national political appointments across diverse administrations, linking this trend to the reluctance of regional leaders to forge alliances with the ruling party at the federal level.

The APC recommend joining its party and extension of hand of fellowship across the Niger as a panacea to the problem of marginalization against the South East, adding that its mission in Anambra was to take over the state.

However, reacting over the issue the PDP said the APC could not address the issue of marginalization of South East in the country.

Honorable Ikechukwu Emenike, the Vice Chairman of the APC in Aguata Local Government Area, emphasized on Sunday that the party’s ability to address marginalization in the South East is hindered by its purported hostility towards the region during the presidential elections, culminating in the emergence of Ahmed Bola Tinubu as president.

Emenike pointed out that political appointments under former President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration did not reflect the APC government’s concern for the welfare of South Easterners.

Emenike stated that the APC’s viewpoint was merely its own political stance, highlighting that the marginalization of the South East was purportedly a collaborative political understanding between the North and West, transcending the confines of the APC.

The Vice Chair of PDP Aguata argued that Nigeria could effectively address the marginalization of the South East without the need for anyone, including governors, to join the APC.

“The APC was playing politics. It cannot stop marginalization because it has no power to do that. Marginalization of South East was allegedly a political arrangement between the North and West. The Anambrai 2025 election will tell who the people would not vote for”, Emenike said.
