- People of Awgu south state constituency have expression dissatisfaction in the APC-led federal government
- The group said the government failed woefully in delivering democracy dividends to Nigerians
- They, however, declared that the party should be voted out of power in 2019 general election
Ahead of the 2019 general elections, stakeholders in Agwu south state constituency have declared that their constituency seat in Enugu state House of Assembly will resume rotation among the federating communities.
Vanguard reports that they said the APC-led federal government has failed woefully in delivering democracy dividends to Nigerians, adding that the failure has had debilitating effects on the economy and lives of the people.
It was learnt that the constituents met under the aegis of Agwu South Vanguard for Gburugburu, where they lamented that the seat had remained in one out of fifteen communities for 16 consecutive years and needed to rotate to other communities.
The meeting was attended by nearly 100 indigenes of the area, who all appended their signatures to the resolution.
According to them, ''Agwu town has had more than its fair share of representation and therefore should allow other components communities in the consistency to produce the next representative in the state House of Assembly.
''It appears that representing Agwu South constituency has become the birth right and exclusive preserve of Agwu town. This is unacceptable.''

They said they needed a new and vibrant representative at the assembly to allow equity and elimination of creeping restiveness.
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had reported that there were indications that the APC may have been thrown into another round of confusion ahead of the 2019 general elections as posters of Ambassador Babagana Kingibe flooded Abuja and other Nigerian cities.
This is happening barely a week after former president Olusegun Obasanjo stoked controversy in a letter to president Muhammadu Buhari asking him not to seek re-election in 2019.
The posters bearing Kingibe’s portraits for president flooded major cities across the country, including Lagos, Kaduna, Abuja, Maiduguri, Calabar, Asaba, Uyo and Kano.
