Chief Onyema Ugochukwu, the former Chairman of Niger Delta Development Commission, says the Igbo will be justified to go for the presidency in 2015.
Ugochukwu said in Umuahia that the unity and resolve of the South East was the biggest lesson of 2011 polls, adding “We made a decision to vote for President Goodluck Jonathan and we voted massively and overwhelmingly.”
“It was a strong message, the tribe represented in every part of the country was not tied to the South East alone.”
Ugochukwu expressed the hope that the race would use the new found unity to leverage and reposition itself in the country’s politics, stressing that disunity made the tribe to lose its pride of place in the country.
“Our new found strength in 2011 polls will get us there,’’ he said.
