Orji Lambasts Ekwueme Over Comment On Jonathan

South-East Governors’ chairman and Abia State Govenor, Theodore Orji, has slammed former vice president Alex Ekwueme for saying President Goodluck Jonathan might not get as much votes from the zone as he did in 2011. According to a Punch report, Orji, through his Special Adviser, Abraham Ama, said Ekwueme’s comment was “unfortunate.”
“It is unfortunate that Ekwueme has lost touch with the realities of the moment,” Ama said.
He stated that Igbo “are united in their support for the president” who would be rewarded with their votes for what he had done in the zone.
Ama, in the report, said the Igboland had benefitted immensely from the current administration.
He took at a swipe at the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, wwho he said was not popular with the people of the zone.
“The APC here sounds like Boko Haram, and you cannot see any well-meaning Igbo son in theAPC. Rochas Okorocha knows he has missed the way, and Ogbonnaya Onu cannot even win in his ward. So, no other party is recognised here,” he said.
