Speaking on Sunday Ezeonwuka said:
"The moment you contested an election and won, you become the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and not the President of the North or South.
"Check out the appointments made by President Muhammadu Buhari, south easterners were nowhere. In appointments of 24 persons, you have 21 from the North, one or two in the South-West, one in the South-South, and none in the South-East.
"It’s quite unfortunate that Buhari has not yet assumed the position of the President of Nigeria. He is like somebody on a specific mission.”
"The APC government should know that we are an integral part of this country called Nigeria. One thing is clear, the marginalisation of the Igbo will not last long. If you keep telling some people that you don’t want them, they can take a decision."
