2015: PPA Carpets Iwuanyanwu Over Anti-Igbo Comment

iwuanyanwuThe National Publicity Secretary of the All Peoples Progressive Alliance, formerly the Progressive Peoples Alliance, Dr. Vitalis Ajumbe, has carpeted Emmanuel Nwanyanwu over comments that the South East should wait beyond 2015 to occupy the nation’s presidency.
Ajumbe stated that at a time Igbo sons and daughters both at home and in the diaspora were calling for Igbo presidency in 2015, is unbelievable that Iwuanyanwu could make such a self-centered assertion.
In a statement made available to the media, Ajumbe said: “APPA as a party is highly disappointed with the remarks emanating from one of the supposed South East leaders.
“The statement by Iwuanyanwu shows the thinking and mindset of some old school politicians who have been living on government over the years without adding value to their people and are ready to sell the future of Igboland for just a penny.”
Ajumbe noted that Iwuanyanwu at age should be busy using network of contacts to consult and seek support of stakeholders in other geographical regions for the actualization of a Nigerian president of Igbo extraction.
He further stated that time has come for Ndigbos take their rightful position in the Nigeria polity after years of marginalization.
The APPA scribe maintained that there is no going back on Igbo presidency in 2015, stating that most parties are conscious of the fact that Igbos have been denied the number one position for more five decades and have decided to zone the position to the South East in order to gain massive support during the 2015 elections.
Ajumbe assured Nigerians that APPA remains the only party with human face and called on all and sundry to support the party in forthcoming elections.
