The cry by the Chairman of the South-East Governors Forum and governor of Ebonyi state,Engr Dave Umahi thet the south East zone was at no time consulted before the choice of ex Gov.Peter Obi as Vice Presidedent may have the leaders of Peoples democratic Party(PDP) in the zone as Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe applauds the Atiku/Obi ticket.
The Abia born Law maker and Chairman,South-East Caucus at the Senate, Senator Abaribe,emphasized that the choice of a former Governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi, as the running mate to the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, is the finest for the party.
Abaribe, in a statement issued in Abuja on Sunday, noted that the choice of Obi to run with the former Vice-President had boosted the chances of the PDP winning the 2019 presidential election.
The vocal senator who is representing the Abia South Senatorial District, described Obi as an embodiment of discipline and positive attributes.
Hear him, “ Mr Obi’s widely acknowledged good track record in infrastructural development and economic reforms as governor of Anambra State remains an eloquent testimony of what service delivery and good governance is all about.
“The ticket of the duo of former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar and Mr Obi represents the finest choice available and one that reflects the high-pitch push by Nigerians for total economic and political reforms.
“The present hopeless situation of fear, despondency and hunger in the land, which is occasioned by a seemingly rudderless and clueless government, requires experienced and steady hands in the saddle. Of course, the Atiku/Obi ticket presents that radical choice capable of pulling the country out of her present horrendous predicament.”
