The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in Ebonyi State Prof. Bernard Odoh, has lamented the failure of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and main opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to allow Igbos emerge as their presidential candidates.

Prof. Odoh made the lamentation while addressing church members on Sunday during the 2022 Fathers’ Day celebration at All Saints Anglican Cathedral, Abakaliki, Ebonyi State capital.

The APGA gubernatorial candidate, Odoh, who bagged the Anglican outstanding leadership award, said Igbos have no place in the two dominant parties in today’s Nigeria.

“We know that Igbos have no place in the two dominant parties in today’s Nigeria again because we have nobody running for President or Vice President in any of the two Parties” he stated.

He stressed further that the time has come for the people of the southeast region to work hard so that Igbos can be recognised in national politics.

“So, it’s time for our people to think about how to secure their various States in the South East first before we begin to gain relevance again in national politics. That’s why we have to work hard to liberate ourselves and make a profound statement on our identity as a people,” he said.

Earlier in his remarks, the Bishop of Anglican Church, Abakaliki Diocese, Rt. Rev. Nkwoagu, charged fathers to always stand in the gap for their families as pillars of their homes.
