Senator of the 8th Republic,Senator Samuel Anyanwu reinstated commitments to support anybody vying for the number one citizen of Imo state.
According to him,if justice,equity and fairness are to be adhered-to, then Imo East must produce a governor in 2023,because since the creation of the state nobody from there has become the governor.
Anyanwu, who represented Owerri Senatorial District in the 8th National Assembly, said the reason why other states in the South East and South South geopolitical zones are making waves is that they have paid high level of respect to zoning formula, wondering why Imo’s case is different.
Senator Anyanwu made the statement via his media aid,Ikenna Onuoha .
The statement reads:
“while the Igbo are agitating against marginalization by the Nigerian government, Imo people should in like manner recall the injustice meted out at Owerri zone and ensure that equity and fairness are seen to be done in future.”
He urged men and women of conscience to speak against marginalization of Owerri zone in the power sharing before it is too late.
The 2019 PDP gubernatorial aspirant said that zoning arrangement allows for easy development and ensures that every component unit is at par with each other, appealing to those opposed to the idea to have a change of heart.
