Blame Onu Not Presidency for Marginalisation, Okorocha Tells Ebonyi APC


The Chairman of the G All Progressives
Congress (APC) Governors’ Forum and Imo
State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, has chided
the Minister for Science and Technology for not
living up to his expectations in attracting
democratic dividends to the party in Ebonyi
State.
Okorocha’s reaction was sequel to the
complaints by the stakeholders in the state that
they were being schemed out from the
employment and empowerment programmes of
the federal government and inability to pay the
rent of the party’s secretariat.
Okorocha noted that it was shocking and
unbearable that Ebonyi State has a full fledge
minister and the party could not pay N5million
rent in the state.
The governor, who came on a familiarisation
visit admonished the party members not to
blame the president for sidelining the party in
the state, noted that the appointment of Onu
into the Federal Executive Council (FEC) was to
attract government presence to the party in the
state.
Represented by the Deputy Speaker of the Imo
State House of Assembly, Hon. Ugonna
Ozurigbo, he promised hat all the issues raised
would be addressed as soon as possible.
“The main aim of governance is to help people
around you. I am the Deputy Speaker of Imo
State House of Assembly is to help people
around me. To use the position and help others.
In the 36 states of the federation, we have 13
major ministers and Ebonyi is one. It is bad that
Ebonyi APC has such high profile minister and
you are still complaining of marginalisation from
the federal government.
“Our visit will definitely address these issues.
We are here to know your problems and
complaints. Ebonyi State should join hands and
build APC to avoid being a minority in the South-
east. APC is waxing stronger and stronger,
Okorocha said
The state chairman of the party, Hon. Ben
Nwobashi noted that the leadership tussle which
had factionalised the party has been resolved by
the national secretariat of the party, who sent
delegation to come and register new members
in the state.
Nwobashi said: “We had a team that was sent
by the national secretariat to come and register
new members and issue of leadership was
presented and my humble self is still the
chairman of APC in Ebonyi and my deputy
remains Pastor Eze Nwachukwu Eze.”
A chieftain of the party and National
Coordinator of Buhari/Osibanjo Initiative for
Demonstrating Change, comrade Chinedu Ogah
expressed optimism that the visit has
authenticated Nwobashi as the chairman of the
state.
Ogah noted that Buhari has remembered Ebonyi
people but “we are selfish in the sense that
most of our men don’t want to allow others
after the people have suffered for them.”
