The leadership of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has attributed the recent defections of politicians from the south-east to the ruling party to the commitment shown by President Muhammadu Buhari to execute vital projects in the zone.

The National Vice Chairman (South East) of the APC, Emma Enuekwu, stated this while speaking to journalists at the party secretariat in Abuja after a meeting of south-east stakeholders.

The meeting was to plan for fresh membership registration in the zone.

Mr. Enuekwu said Igbos are beginning to have confidence in the new administration and are wiser after the 16-year rule of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP.

“The problem with the south easterners before the election was that they felt that PDP was the proper party for the Igbo man which they came to realize lately was not true because they were disappointed. PDP was in power for 16 years and the Enugu-Onitsha road was not done, the Enugu-Port Harcourt road was not done, the second Niger Bridge was not done,” the APC chieftain said.

“When they realized this, they are now seeing that Buhari who has been in power for a little over one year has paid contractors and started doing something about the Enugu-Onitsha road, the Enugu-Port Harcourt road and has started doing something on the second Niger Bridge within one year.”

“Because of the high level of integrity displayed by President Buhari, many people are anxious to join the party. Therefore, a lot of people that have moved from other parties and entered APC have not had the opportunity of being registered and therefore the leadership felt it necessary that these people be registered so that they can be part of the party ahead of the next general election.”

The official said the party will adopt manual registration which will also capture the biometrics of every member.

Some top Igbo politicians who recently decamped to the APC include Jim Nwobodo and Orji Kalu former governors of Anambra and Abia state respectively.

    now they know that that gentle man called Jonathan defrauded them by claiming he constructed roads and the 2nd niger bridge… Ibos wake up… but my rejection is that orji kalu and jim nwobo…. those old guys are also the dudes that milked the east of the niger dry

    • Karl Imom

      Were these people NOT singing PDP achievements before and during the last general elections and claiming that Buhari was brain-dead? Are they NOT still claiming he has caused recession in less than one-year in power? Those following Buhari in SS and SE are contractors and political jobbers not real Igbos

    Better late than NEVER!

    Igbo man’s problem is hunger… Never a savvy political calculator or navigator like the Yorubas or the Hausas. That is why they can be easily deceived like they were by Jona with those “plantain” and “yams”…

    • Ibu Anyi Danda

      But kwashiorkor and malnutrition plus hunger are decimating your slave masters in the Allah forsecking arid northern nigga-area. Again, in Ilorin the part of Yoruba land the Fulani captured and seized from your coward tribe, neighbours are stealing pots of soup of neighbours in order feed, just look around you if envy and jealousy will permit you, ndi Igbo and indeed Biafrans are not feeling the recession as your lazy people. All Hail Biafra.

      • Lenz

        Sorry, guy… Biafra is dead already and buried and its descendants are hallucinating and dying of the kwashiorkor you talked about. You don’t need to travel far to Yoruba land… They are there all around you… Thank goodness that Buhari has some pity on the hungry ones who are bold enough to bow down for it…

        • Ibu Anyi Danda

          This is always statement from typical Caliphate slave, house nigga sort of. For your information Biafra is a done deal, go and organise your people at least 2022 World Cup in Qatar the World want see how your Oduduwa and the Islamic North will represent them self. All Hail Biafra.

        And the SS SE are only populated with Alameyeseighas and James Iboris!

  • Julius

    This is a good thing. We all can now rant with one voice on what the government is doing wrong., without the hint of ethnic bias . Good deed !

    • Burbank

      Amen

  • okoro

    these people are not IGBOs but politicians. politcians dont have ethnic group

  • Ulo

    Ibu Anyi Danda, live your name! Allow the government do what it can for the Igbos and be a little optimistic. Show respect too to others and their opinions.

  • Odinaka

    Igbos are not accepting any APC. This is just a publicity stunt. APC and Buhari have not done enough to woo Igbos. Buhari still shows intolerance and hatred on issues affecting Igbos. From the current political calculations Igbos will become the most sought-after in 2019.

    • Burbank

      Even Ojukwu’s APGA is abandoned in the SE SS for jihadist Iimam Alhaji Ali Modu Sheriff’s PDP.

    • Karl Imom

      Who will be seeking them?

  • Burbank

    16 years in federal power and the PDP cannot even completed the 2 federal roads and a bridge in the Niger Delta.

    Yet the same criminal PDP party was still voted for by the very people they ravished and violated.

  • Arc_Deji_Alabi

    Kalu and Jim Nwobodo are the worse set of Igbo APC can welcome. Let them get people like Ken Nnamani, then we would know they are serious

  • JasV

    I will be very cautious with the guy called Nwobodo because politically he has this long history of looking for nwokosha.
