The National chairman of the United Progressives Party, UPP, Chief Chekwas Okorie, Sunday, expressed disenchantment over ethinicity exhibited by the people of South East zone during the just concluded 2019 Nigeria presidential election.
Okorie said, “The new awareness that we are noticing is wrongly headed, about trying to play up ethnicity which is no longer in trend now.
“Ndigbo, I can tell you, have almost surrendered. I have been in the forefront of arousing the Igbo political consciousness for years, but it seems we have achieved little”.
The frontline politician, made his opinion known, in a terse statement forwarded to DAILY POST, on Sunday, reiterated that he would continue to do his best, with his associates in promoting Igbo political consciousness.
According to Okorie, “We have the number, we have the spread, we have everything it will take to be politically relevant and to decide who wins elections, particularly presidential elections”.
