In Southeast, we wont Waste our Votes on Peter Obi – Ekweremadu
POLITICS DIGEST- Former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, has said the South East will not vote for Peter Obi in the forthcoming presidential election in 2023.
Ekweremadu said this in a short interview with newsmen in the Senate.
The former Deputy Senate President acknowledged that Obi is a credible presidential candidate but the Southeast will rather vote for the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, than throw away its votes for Obi who he said won’t win the election.
“I can assure you that the Southeast will vote for PDP, we ask ourselves if Obi can win the election and the answer is no.
“Can the Southeast afford to throw away our votes and be sentimental about a matter that concerns our people, our children and future? No.
“We don’t intend to do a thing that we will regret in the future but we believe that Obi is qualified.”
