Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha

Okorocha made the remark on Monday, April 18, 2016, via a statement released by his Chief Press Secretary, Sam Onwuemeodo.

It reads:

My first reaction is that the whole thing is a mockery of the South-East zone and her people, especially when one remembers that the PDP has suddenly felt that the South-East could occupy the Vice-President position for the 2019 election.

This is also coming one year after it had lost power, and it does not have the slightest chance of winning the 2019 poll. Indeed, the PDP is just making mockery of the South-East.

They are just waking up from their slumber after being out of power. The PDP never allowed the South-East to have the president, the Vice-President, the Senate President, the speaker of House of Representatives, and so on. The South-East totally lost out in the PDP government.

All the federal roads in the zone were death traps until the party was voted out of power. The second Niger Bridge became endless pit for the PDP. Some oil locations belonging to some states in the zone were taken away and given to other states outside the zone. It was a hopeless situation for the zone in PDP.
