Following the proposed plan for President Muhammadu Buhari to visit the Southeast states, the Igbo National Council (INC), has demanded that the Vice President slot should be zoned to the region, in the next election.
A statement in Owerri by INC President, Chilos Godsent, said it was the only way the ruling party could get the votes of the people of the region in the 2019 general elections.
Godsent claimed that under the All Progressives Congress, APC, the region has been deliberately marginalized.
The statement read: "The Igbo National Council INC has long x-rayed the performances of PMB and also the fulfillment of their campaign promises to Southeast region.
"The INC is of the view that the PMB-led federal government has abysmally failed the Southeast due to marginalization of the zone by the government.
"Consequently, INC's condition for the South East to support PMB for second term is that APC should zone its Vice President ticket to South East."
