All Progressives Congress (APC) Chairman, John Odigie-Oyegun says that only the party can give the Igbo tribe a chance at the Presidency.

Oyegun also said that the ruling party would bury the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the South-East.

He made the comments on Saturday, May 6, during a rally held to welcome former Enugu State Governor, Sullivan Chime, to the APC.

“We are going to finally bury the PDP in the eastern states. In the next election, who is going to be the governor of Enugu State?” Oyegun said according to Punch.

“Which party can best ensure Igbo presidency? Is it not APC? No other party can ensure that. The people of the South-East are entitled to full participation in this country, and APC is committed and ready to provide the platform.

“For long, you (South-East) have been prevented from reaping the fruits of your labour. The time has come for you to reap the fruits of your labour. When I get back to Abuja now, I have a message for the national headquarters of our party – Enugu State is ready, the people of the South-East are ready.

“From the moment we won the last election, and seeing how skewed the country is, part of the plan was to ensure that the South-East returns to the mainstream of politics in this country,” he added.

Chime, who defected from the PDP in March, formally registered as an APC member at his ward in the Udi Local Government Area of the state.
