2023 Presidency: Ekweremadu Says South East Won’t Vote For Peter Obi


South East can’t afford to throwaway their vote,  Former deputy president of the Senate, Ike Ekweremadu, has said that the South East region will vote for the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP and not one of her sons and the candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi who’s candidacy is spreading like wildfire in the youth Constituency.

Ekweremadu who represents Enugu West Senatorial zone at the Red Chamber said the South east will have to be very dynamic in their political decisions said Okowa will protect the Igbo interest as much as Obi.

“I come from the south-east, I can assure you that South East will vote PDP, I can guarantee that. No doubt that Peter is our son, ask ourselves, can Peter win the presidential election? Can East afford to throw away their votes? Can we afford to be sentimental in matter that concerns our people our children and our future? The answer is no!

“So we don’t intend to do a thing which we will regret in the future. While we believe that Peter is ably qualified, we believe that the future of our people lies in PDP at least in the next 8 years. So, we need to take that decision as the leaders of our people and we’re going to seat down with them and explain to them.

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

We are going to give the people of the South East the opportunity of meeting with Okowa so that he will also speak to them for we are going to be on ground to talk to our people.

Ekweremadu who contested for the governorship ticket of the PDP who was speaking shortly after the emergence of Okowa as the running mate of Atiku Abubakar earlier, expressed satisfaction with the choice of the Delta Governor.

“I’m very very excited, it means that PDP will win,” he said while responding to questions on the choice of Okowa.

“There’s no better choice at the circumstance than Senator Okowa, he has distinguished himself as a performing Governor. As a parliamentarian, he was very quintessential, he made friends across the country. So he’s very dynamic. He’s a patriot and a pan Nigerian.

“He’s going to bring a lot of value to the Atiku ticket,” headded.
