Former Deputy Speaker of the Federal House of Representatives and PDP stalwart, Rt. Hon. Emeka Ihedioha, has pleaded with the Igbo people to wait till 2031 and characterized Mr. Peter Obi’s presidential ambition as dead on arrival.
Ihedioha made this remark over the weekend while interacting with reporters in Abuja, the capital of Nigeria.
“Peter Obi’s desperation to become Nigeria’s President is ill advised. What any right thinking average Igbo person should do now is to be in alliance with the North to complete their tenure under PDP before the South East can try its luck in 2031. Take a closer look at Peter Obi’s Presidential pretenses, the only people supporting him are miscreants, jobless and idle youths; no responsible leader is supporting his actions”
Ihedioha said that Peter Obi’s presidency will never be a better choice for Nigeria to overcome its severe issues.
He said that if the Labour Party candidate is elected, the errors of President Buhari’s administration will be multiplied, and advised anyone urging support for Obi’s ambition to be wary of the approaching repercussions.
“Peter Obi is my personal friend and brother from the same tribe; I know him too well more than others, he is not only crafty but desperate to cease any opportunity for his personal desires. He is not the best for now to rescue our country. Atiku Abubakar is better than him” Ihedioha submitted.
Ihedioha spoke on the nation’s faltering economy and noted that the PDP candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, remains the hard-core to save the country due to his extensive experience in business and governance.
Therefore, he urged everyone backing Obi to stop, warning that doing so would plunge the nation into a catastrophe that was far worse than what the APC had already brought about.
