The Imo State governor, Rochas Okorocha made the statement at a recent event. He lamented that despite the contributions of the Igbo to national development since Independence, they had continued to lag behind in Nigerian politics due to
their leaders’ selfishness.
South-East which should have produced the next Senate President has no APC senator. Rochas said: “It is very painful for the Igbo to lose the position of the Senate President after they have been denied leading positions in the country for a long time. .
We saw it coming and we told our political leaders why Ndigbo should embrace the APC, but they did not believe us. Now the story has changed. The PDP, which they have been following all these years with nothing to show for it, is now an opposition party.”….. So sad, I pray they get it right come year 2089…….
