“Even in PDP days, we orchestrated the 2nd Niger Bridge that never took off, but today something is going on in the place, including renovation work going on in Akanu Ibiam International Airport.

“Southeasterners of PDP extraction were ministers and they did nothing to upgrade the airport, but the president is doing wonderful work there despite not getting votes from the region,” The Nation quoted Dikeocha as saying.

The party chief promised to help rebuild APC in the state, saying the time had come for Ndigbo to join the government at the centre.

He also urged APC chieftains, Senator Rochas Okorocha, Uche Nwosu, and Hope Uzodinma to form a common front for the task ahead.
