A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress APC in Enugu State Osita Okechukwu has cleared President Bola Ahmed Tinubu of any blame in the nomination of only five people from the South-East as members of his cabinet after South-East leaders accused him of marginalizing zone.

Okechukwu, a foundation member of the APC while answering questions from newsmen in Enugu yesterday over the perceived poor treatment meted out to the South East remarked that without defending Tinubu he would rather blame the South East APC leaders.

The Director General of Voice of Nigeria reiterated that the leaders must be blamed for being more or less petty in their lobby strategy instead of genuine advancement of South East interest, stressing that one of the leaders is the chairman of the APC Governors Forum, the leading Power Bloc and the other was already in the senate.

Okechukwu reminded journalists that it is on record that he was the only one who in December 2021, publicly appealed to TINUBU to support any Igbo in the race, and his men replied instantly that the Kingmaker wants to be King.
