2019: Why Igbos should support me and Atiku – Peter Obi

The vice presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Peter Obi, on Friday gave reasons he believe Igbos should support their ticket.

Mr Obi was recently named the running mate to ex-vice president Atiku Abubakar, who is the PDP presidential candidate.

The former Anambra governor, spoke in Enugu when he was hosted by the state governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi

Mr. Obi told the governor that he was at the Government House to consult him and seek the usual support of the state, stressing that his candidacy was not about him “as Peter Obi” but the people of the Igbo nation and Nigerians at large.

“So for me this nomination is about our own area. We can’t continue to say we are not getting this or that or that we are marginalised,” he said.

“I have served as governor, so people know a bit of my record. I am here to say to you (Ugwuanyi), I remain one of you. Everybody knows that I believe in Enugu. I believe this is our capital and it remains so.

“Your Excellency, that is why I am here. I need your support and that of all of you. I assure that it is all about us and Nigerians, not about Peter Obi.”
