Jonathan’s re-election will benefit Igbo- Youth group
The group made this known yesterday during a rally of its South-East zone in Lagos.
Speaking, Publicity Secretary of the group, Theophilus Chibueze, said the call on Jonathan became necessary because the Jonathan administration had benefitted the Igbos more than any previous administration.
This, according to him, can only get better as the President’s continued stay in office would cement the peace and development the region is currently enjoying.
He noted that the re-election of Jonathan would ensure the completion of various projects already earmarked for the zone by the administration, particularly the Second Niger Bridge.
Chibueze also said that with power staying in South-south beyond 2015, the Igbo stands a better chance to secure the presidency in 2019.
“By then, the Igbo nation will have been more than prepared to stake its rightful claim to the presidency in the interest of equity and justice,” he said.
Chibueze congratulated the newly-appointed acting Inspector General of Police, Suleiman Abba, and urged him to look into the occupation of the South-East by police commissioners of northern extraction, saying “apart from Enugu State, the Police Commissioners in four other South-east states were from the North.”
He expressed concern that in the face of Boko Haram menace, having more police Commissioners of Northern origin makes Igbos uncomfortable, wondering whether it was a deliberate act to entrap the Igbos.
