2019: Igbo Will Produce Presidential Candidate – UPP Chairman


The United Progressive Party (UPP) has announced that the Ndiigbo based in the South east will produce its presidential candidate in 2019.

The party, however, accused the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) of dividing the country along primordial cleavages more than any government had done.

UPP’s National Chairman, Chief Chekwas Okorie, who stated this in Awka, Anambra State, during the national convention of the party, said that APC had defrauded Nigerians by failing to make good its promises of bringing change.

“We have been politically defrauded by a political party that canvassed true federalism while it sought for the votes of trusting Nigerians, but in a very unscrupulous and unconscionable manner promptly jettisoned its avowed article of faith, and foisted on harmless Nigerian citizens the worst form of nepotism, reductionism, lethargy, cluelessness and retrogression,” he said.

He reaffirmed the policy of the UPP to zone its presidential slot to the South East geopolitical zone during the 2019 general elections until the party’s objective was achieved.
