Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Anambra state chapter has condemned the lopsidedness in the appointments made by President Muhammadu Buhari recently, calling on Igbo people to remain calm.
In a statement made available to newsmen in Awka, the state capital yesterday by the state chairman of the party , Prince Ken Emeakayi , the PDP described Buhari’s appointments as “the marginalization of a people.”
It stated: “Now that it has become obvious that the “change” which APC promised Ndigbo is nothing other than marginalization, harassment and intimidation, we call on our people to remain calm as we caution that we are no commodities that can be purchased, and that the Igbo nation can never be frightened into submission by any political party or government.
“Our dear President makes no pretences in confirming that hard time awaits Ndigbo and all those that did not vote for the APC in the last general election.
“From the appointments made so far by President Buhari and his party, the message is clear that the Igbo nation has no place and future with Buhari .
“While we have no regrets whatsoever as members of Peoples Democratic Party and the faithful supporters of former President Goodluck Jonathan during the last presidential election, we cannot pretend to be happy seeing our people from the South East, even the APC members who supported President Buhari during the election now being victimized and marginalized for no reasons other than that they are Igbo.
“There are eminently qualified Igbo people who are APC members, and as such the APC led Federal Government is morally bound to give equal opportunities to the people of the South East similar to the appointments being given to their colleagues from the Northern part of Nigeria and elsewhere.
