He accused president Goodluck Jonathan of jeopardizing the chances of the people of the South -East Geo political zone from becoming the president noting that what was agreed in 1999 was that South would go for 8 years and the North for another 8 years and that if president Goodluck Jonathan should be allowed to continue it would further block every possible way of Ndi-Igbo producing a president.
