Chief Chukwuemeka Ezeife, former Governor of Anambra State, on Wednesday said the South East states will shock the All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2019 general elections.
Ezeife who was in Akure, the Ondo State capital for the public presentation of the biography of Governor Olusegun Mimiko said none of the Southeast States has anything to show the people of the region for the APC’s government
He described those joining APC in the region as those who wanted to be governor at all cost .
While noting that the people of the zone would disappoint APC and the politicians who are trooping to the party, Ezeife said the people would stick with All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
His words :“Southeastern people are not going to APC. What is happening is that some people who want to be governor by stealing the position about twelve of them are going to APC and they will discover that they will never win any election after going there.
“They cannot win the governorship. So don’t worry about that. We have been more consistent in the zone, so we are not going anywhere. We are consistent in APGA and PDP.
“Some people saw what happened in Edo and Ondo and they believed that the only way to be governor is to go through APC but we are assuring them that our people will not vote for them.”
While corroborating the position of Governor Rochas Okorocha that the Southeast states have nothing to show from the government at the centre, Ezeife said “There is nothing for us to show in this government. Are we the Secretary to the Government of the Federation? Do we have any protocol position? Nothing. Okorocha is in APC but we know that we are not wanted.
“Some people who wanted to be governor are smuggling themselves in to APC but we will not allow them. We are going for presidency. I like what Chief Olusegun Obasanjo said. For that 2019, we are going for President.”
