'We Will Stop Atiku From Winning In South-East'
The South East seems to be the beautiful bride in the forthcoming presidential election.
Both President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressive Congress (APC) and the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Atiku Abubakar are currying favour from the region.
But the National Coordinator of a group routing for the re-election of President Buhari, Frank Ezike, on Wednesday has vowed to stop Atiku Abubakar, from winning the February 16 election in the South-East.
The coordinator of the group tagged “I Believe in President Muhammadu Buhari 2019,” said his move would counter Atiku’s endorsement by the Igbo apex socio-cultural group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo.
In a statement made available, Ezike said he would galvanise all the major bodies in the South East to go against the endorsement.
He said Buhari would sweep the votes from the South-East states.
He said, “We will block Atiku in the South-East, come February 16. The purported electoral support given to former Vice President Atiku Abubakar by the leadership of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, holds no water as the good people of the South-East are not ready to gamble with their votes at a time they are supposed to carefully define their political interests by way of secured electoral investments for the future.
“Ohanaeze Ndigbo, in their calculations, may have their reasons for the said electoral endorsement and all the members of the youth population, across the five states of the South-East and significant other eligible voters, are set to vote for PMB 100%.”
