The National Publicity Secretary of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, Uche Achi-Okpaga, yesterday, described the National Assembly elections as an orchestrated gang up against the South-East geopolitical zone.

In a statement in Abakaliki, the organisation said: “We are not surprised a bit. He that is down needed fear no fall. Recall that I had told you that we are not expecting any favour from this administration.

“The government of President Buhari does not place any premium on the South-East and he did not mince or mumble words about that right from the onset of his first tenure.

“So, all his political foot soldiers and adherents in the National Assembly and elsewhere watch and identify with his body language, embellished with primordial ethnocentric and religious tidings.

“Government has succeeded in igniting an orchestrated gang up against the South-East.

“We have continued to extend our hands of fellowship but on each occasion, it is trampled with the feet of hatred buoyed by the air of ethnic chauvinism.”
