The Apex Leader of Ndigbo in the Lagos State chapter of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Jude Emeka Idimogu, has said the Ndigbo in the state and across Nigeria should regard the party as the only one that will guarantee their right to having a shot at the Presidency.
The lawmaker, who represents Oshodi/Isolo State Constituency II in the Lagos State House of Assembly, was commenting on complaints of marginalisation by the Igbo and other parts of the Southeast regarding political disparity in the country.
He advised the Ndigbo to join the APC to enable them clinch the Presidency, after many years.
Idimogu said the APC remained the party to beat, stressing that there was no other party with the kind of relevance the APC has, even as he added that joining other parties would not be a surety for their goal.
The lawmaker, who visited Eze Ndigbo of Ajeromi-Ifelodun, Eze Nwajiofor Okoli, to solicit his support, said: “The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) or any other party in Nigeria cannot guarantee the Presidency for the Ndigbo. They need to embrace the APC to be relevant, politically. We cannot continue to complain of being marginalised when we remain members of parties that are in opposition to the ruling party at the state and federal levels.
