Chris Adolawam, an All Progressives Congress, APC, governorship aspirant in Ebonyi State, has said President Muhammadu Buhari is not responsible for the marginalization of the South-East region.
Adolawam said some governors of the region who were only interested in personal gains were responsible for the marginalization of the South East.
The APC governorship aspirant stated this while addressing newsmen in Abakaliki, the Ebony State capital, yesterday.
He also expressed hope that the party will be united and focused so as to be able to form a credible opposition to the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the state.
According to Adolawam, “The President had put modalities in place to ensure the economic development and sustainability of federal government policies in every sector of the economy within the region.
“If he wins the 2019 governorship election, his administration would focus on the industrialization of the state and human capital development.
“The stakeholders also agreed to allow a free and fair congress that will lead to the ushering in of new executives to pilot the affairs of the party.”
