We do not know when the South-South geopolitical zone will ever produce Nigeria's President again, the National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Chief John Odigie Oyegun has lamented
He stated this while taking swipe at former President Jonathan who he said failed the people of the south-south where he comes from himself.
Odigie, the National Chairman of Nigeria's ruling party, the All Progressives Congress hails from Edo State.

According to him, ''Jonathan was God’s gift to the south-south. There was a massive movement in the south-south to have one of our sons as President. On a platter of gold, God gave him to us. Did he make us proud? The answer is no. That’s one lost opportunity.'' 

Speaking with Vanguard in Abuja, he said Jonathan wasted his years as the President of Nigeria as the south-south geopolitical zone benefited nothing from his 6 years in office calling to mind the state of the East-West road, Port Harcourt International Airport which he used on a weekly basis while in office. 
In his words: ‘’We don’t know when that opportunity will come again for the south-south to produce a Nigerian president and the south-south has been significant throughout our history in maintaining the coherence of this nation through all its difficulties. 
‘’Finally, we had that golden opportunity and we blew it. He is honored and respected today because of his singular act of conceding the defeat, even though we now know that he tried to reverse himself. 

‘’So, my advice to him is, let time heal wounds. Don’t answer every little query and question about your Presidency because the facts are all there, very glaring.
