Obi’ll assist Atiku to revitalise Nigeria’s ailing economy –Ohanaeze

People of South-East geopolitical zone, yesterday went into celebration following the announcement of two-term Governor of Anambra State, Mr. Peter Obi, by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate in next year’s general election, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, as his running mate. Obi was announced yesterday evening by former Vice President of the country as his running mate for 2019 presidential election. The people of the South- East went into jubilation immediately Atiku pronounced Obi his running mate. Speaking to Saturday Telegraph in Abakaliki, National Publicity Secretary of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Prince Uche Achi-Okpagha, said Obi would bring his expertise to bear by assisting Atiku to revitalise the nation’s economy. He said: “We the Ohanaeze Ndigbo has already made it clear that we are not interested in the Presidency or Vice-Presidency of Nigeria unless you restructure Nigeria.

If you put an Igbo man as a President, there is little or nothing he can do in developing the south east because his wings are clipped by the wages of confusion in his side. “But be that as it may, Atiku is the one who has been hammering on restructuring. So, we have absolute faith in him that he is going to restructure Nigeria and if he does that and with people like Peter Obi on his side, that is where the expertise comes in.

“Peter Obi is a technocrat; he will help to revitalised the economy of this country. This is all we want because if you are not an expert and you are into politics, you bring the expert close to you not base on ethnic or religious sentiments. “You already know that Obi is a two term former Governor of Anambra State which is not a no mean experience and he has been a financial guru before he came into politics. So, he will help Atiku to revitalise the economy.

“The way the economy of the country is, we need people like Obi otherwise the economy will collapse irretrievably. “Obi is a Christian, he is not a Muslim and he is from the South-East and Atiku has brought him close to help him to fix the economy. This is what we want. What else do we want if not to move the nation forward because the masses will not continue to suffer?”
