The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says the South-East demand for a President from the region in 2023, is morally right and timely.
Mr Chukwubuikem Uloka, Deputy Director, Media and Publicity of PDP Presidential Campaign Management Committee, said this in a statement in Awka.
“It is comprehensible that the Southeast is demanding a president from the region in 2023; we all agree that such demand is morally right and timely,” he said.
The PDP publicity secretary said though there was a growing sentiment in favour of the President from the Southeast geopolitical zone, the reality on ground in terms of national spread and acceptability favoured Atiku/Okowa for victory.
He, however, called on the electorate in the South East geopolitical zone to support the Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and Gov. Ifeanyi Okowa ticket.
Uloka said the ticket was the best bargain for the South East in the February 2023 election as it had bright chances over other candidates.
He said the PDP had the best manifesto among all the political parties as it guaranteed egalitarianism, restructuring, better economic policies and national cohesion.
“It is important that we remind ourselves that what is important to the Southeast having our region reconnected to the national political and economic grid is through genuine reconciliation, forging strategic alliances with other regions.
“The Atiku/Okowa presidential campaign management committee, led by Professor Obiora Okonkwo, is optimistic that the victory of the PDP ticket is the shortest route for an Igbo presidency,” he stated
