The Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, has assured Nigerian citizens from the South-East that the region would get its fair share of representation in the Buhari-led government.
Governor Okorocha, who spoke after a meeting with political leaders in the state, explained that, as the Commander in Chief, President Muhammadu Buhari had exercised what the constitution allowed him to do.
The governor said there was no cause for alarm, as it was too early in the day to judge the president’s intentions and reason for his appointments which some persons in the region had questioned, saying it was one-sided.
He said that his recent interactions with the president, made him more confident that Buhari’s administration meant well for the entire nation, including the South-East.
Governor Okorocha said he would continue to appeal to the president to consider the South-East in subsequent appointments even though, the people of the South-East were more interested in projects and programmes that would bring about rapid development for the people.
President Buhari’s last appointments had generated mixed reactions, with some persons from the South-East saying the region had not gotten any of the appointments made by the President. (Channels TV)
