2023: South East won’t waste votes on Peter Obi; Okowa is one of us — Ekweremadu

137

Former Deputy President of the Senate, Mr. Ike Ekweremadu has stated that South East will not waste its votes for Peter Obi, the candidate of Labour Party (LP) in the 2023 presidential election.

Senator Ekweremadu made the statement in a viral video, saying that the region will rather vote for the presidential candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar and its vice presidential candidate, Mr. Ifeanyi Okowa, who he said is “is one of us”.

Ekweremadu, who was recently disgraced out of the Enugu State PDP governorship race, said:

“I assure you that South East will vote for the People Democratic Party (PDP). I can guarantee that. No doubt Peter Obi is our son, but you need to be dynamic.

“You need to ask yourself, can Peter win the presidential election? Can the East afford to throw away their votes? Can we afford to be sentimental in matters that concern our people, our children, and our future? No”

“We do not intend to do a thing which we will regret in future.

“So, while we believe that Peter is ably qualified, we believe that the future of our people lies with PDP.

“So, we need to make that decision as the leaders. I am going to sit with our people and explain to them.”

“Okowa, of course, is one of us, so there is no difference between Okowa and Peter in terms of protecting the interest of the South.

“So, we will go and give the people of the South East that opportunity.”

His comment has drawn widespread condemnation among the youth populace especially on social media who believe that Peter Obi is the “Messiah” to alleviate the woes orchestrated by the bad leadership of APC and PDP since the inception of the fourth republic in 1999.

Recall that members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) attacked Senator Ekweremadu in Germany in August 2019 over his unpopular positions in matters affecting the region.
