A legal luminary and erudite don of the Imo State University (IMSU) Owerri,now Special Adviser to Imo state Governor on political Affairs,Professor Nnamdi Obiaraeri has X-rayed why the former deputy speaker federal house of representatives and erstwhile governorship candidate of the peoples democratic party,PDP,in the 2015 general elections,Rt Hon Emeka Ihedioha cannot be the governor of Imo state.

In an interview with Watchdog Newspaper correspondent recently in owerri, the vocal and youthful lawyer, Prof Obiaraeri who firmly believes in the political zoning arrangements which according to him is n order as contained in section 24,of the 1999 constitution observed that those who clamour for the application of the arrangements are really selfish people who do not in it only if it favours their selfish interest and cited Chief Emeka Ihedioha as one of such selfish advocates of the zoning arrangement.
Hon Emeka Ihedioha he reiterated only supports zoning for as long as he is the only beneficiary such he never considered zoning for the three terms of 12 years he spent at the Federal House of Representatives.

He declared "if Ihedioha is sincere,he should not aspire or talk of becoming governor of Imo state after enjoying three tenures in the National Assembly as Deputy Speaker and Speaker of the federal house of representatives for a seat zoned to his Aboh Mbaise and Ngor Okpala Federal Constituency only to consider zoning when it favours him and queried what does he want and why is he desperate?

He went further to explain that as former deputy speaker and speaker,there is no place he will walk into in Nigeria without getting due attention,thus "he should rather support other younger ones to get to that office rather than being desperate" bursting out to ask even while in the exalted offices as deputy and speaker of the house of representatives,what more did he attract to Imo as compared to what Senator Ike Ekweremadu did and is doing in Enugu state?
