The vice presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Mr. Peter Obi, has visited leaders of the party in the South-East, including governors, to seek support for his nomination, which he said was for all Igbo.
The governors of Abia, Enugu & Ebonyi had expressed reservations over Obi’s selection as Alhaji Atiku Abubakar’s running mate, saying they were not consulted.
However, in a bid to diffuse the ‘tension’ that greeted his nomination as the PDP vice presidential candidate, the former Anambra State governor embarked on a peace mission to meet with leaders of the party in the South-East.
The former Anambra State governor explained that he was passing through Enugu and decided to see the governor and ‘inform’ him of his nomination as the PDP vice presidential candidate.
“Politics is about what is there for your people, not what is there for you. For me, this nomination is about all Igbo; we can’t continue saying we are being marginalised. This is an opportunity to get some of the things we want”. Peter Obi said.
