Presidential Primaries: We’ll expose, put ‘Igbo saboteur delegates in Hall of Shame’ – ASETU

The Association of South East Town Union (ASETU) has condemned the outcome of the recently concluded Presidential Primary elections of the two major political parties: the All Progressives Congress, APC, and the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.




It said the parties hatefully failed to produce a South-East presidential candidate, vowing to expose people they identified as “Igbo saboteur delegates.”

This was contained in a statement signed by Chief Emeka Diwe, the National President of ASETU.

Diwe said the outcome of the primaries vividly confirmed “our continuous cry over the years through various press releases, communiques and other sundry publications regarding the sordid marginalization of Ndigbo within the Nigeria Polity.”

He said, “our fear is that this ugly incident has graduated to the terrible state of alienation.”

While noting that there could be no better time to ensure that Igbo man deservedly becomes the President of Nigeria than now, the ASETU National President stated that, “going by the constitutions of the major political parties, they were expected to zone the President to the South this time.

“In the South, also South East was to be the automatic beneficiary being the only zone that has not tasted either the exalted position of the President or Vice President since the democratic dispensation that started in 1999.

“Such brazen injustice and marginalization have received regular mention by agitation groups both in the South East and other regions.

“We, however, doff our hats for Igbo aspirants, particularly Dr. Ogbonanya Onu, and others for their courage and boldness in speaking out against injustice meted to the South East during their speeches at the primary elections.”

Diewe declared that, “the party primaries have also exposed the real saboteurs in Igbo land. These are the South East delegates who were chosen to represent Ndigbo but went there to fest their nest. They practically sold out their Igbo brothers and voted for aspirants of other regions obviously because of money.

“Records showed that five South Eastern States had about 389 delegates/votes in the case of the APC. Of this number, Ebonyi State had 39 delegates, Imo 100, Anambra 100, Abia 100 and Enugu 50 votes. But shamefully, only 40 votes from this number went to South East aspirants. It is important to mention that 39 of the 40 votes came from Ebonyi State delegates.

“Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State got 38 votes while Dr Ogbonanya Onu had one vote. The other one vote went to Hon. Emeka Nwajiuba. The question is who did other Igbo delegates of South East vote for? Certainly contestants from other zones.

“It is for this patriotic reason that ASETU, therefore, thumbs up for all the delegates from Ebonyi State for making the Igbo proud. They did not sell out nor allow their reasoning to be swayed by pecuniary interest. They are the true sons of their forefathers. They have made the Igbo HALL OF FAME with appropriate rank and designation.

“As for those shameless desecrators of their fatherland, we have traditional way of handling such deviants. We therefore call on all the traditional heads and “Aka-ji-Ofors” of Igbo land to do the needful with their Ofo. While calling on the aged Umuada/Umuokpu to do the needful with their hindsight.

“We have directed all the Presidents-General in the affected areas to compile their names for subsequent exposure and committal unto a disgraceful hall of ‘shame’. Enough is enough!”
