President-elect, Bola Tinubu’s spokesperson in the Southeast region, Josef Onoh has said that Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia state did not work for the victory of his principal in the February 25 election.

SPY NIGERIA reports that according to Onoh, the only governors in the south-east that worked for the president-elect were the governors of the All Progressives Congress (APC)-controlled states of Imo and Ebonyi, noting that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) should not accuse their governors in the southeast of working towards the emergence of Tinubu as president-elect.

Ikpeazu is one of the G5 governors, the rebel governors of the PDP.

Onoh spoke in reaction to the PDP Daniel Bwala’s accusation against Ikpeazu, whom Bwala alleged followed Governor Nysom Wike of Rivers state to work for the APC presidential candidate, Tinubu.

Onoh said that Enugu and Abia states gave APC the worst result in the recent time, which will be unfair to the APC for the PDP to brand the Abia state Governor an APC supporter while it was clear that the G-5 Governors supported their party more than any other party despite the smokescreen opposition.

He added that it was unfortunate that the southeast failed to vote for Tinubu despite the entreaties he made to them, but they went ahead and voted for the PDP and the Labour Party.

“But now that we have won, you cannot come after our sweat to seat down in the air conditioner and expect to be severed while toeing sentimental and ethnic lines. This time around, I urge the Igbo to go home and make a foundation on how to become, at least a vice president, show inclusiveness, show acceptance, show humility and not always boastfulness, or threats.

“Maybe after eight years of Vice Presidency, other ethnic groups in Nigeria will develop trust, and work together to produce a president of Igbo extraction which I believe and know we will achieve with the right attitude and manner of approach, but not when you are clamouring for another country you expect to be handed over the presidency.

“So I urge Governor Ikpeazu to be that bridge builder, educate the Igbos based on what he has experienced on how we can become bridge builders and good ambassadors. Then and then alone can Nigerians of other ethnic groups begin to develop trust among us,” Vanguard on Monday quoted Onoh as saying.
