The dust raised by the announcement of Peter Obi as the Vice Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic party has not fully settled down. Speaking when he recently visited Abia state, Peter Obi, former Anambra governor, said that South-East governors and leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the region never acted against him, reports DailyPost.
He said this in reaction to alleged opposition to his emergence as the running mate of the party’s presidential candidate, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar.
In a report by NAN cited by the DailyPost, Obi spoke when he visited the site of last Friday’s pipeline fire that killed scores of residents of Umuimo and Umuadoro communities in Osisioma Ngwa Local Government Council.
He said he had spoken to leaders in the Senate including Ike Ekweremmadu, Enyinnaya Abaribe, Theodore Orji, Sam Egwu and others.
“For us, what is important is to rebuild the South-East, to rebuild Nigeria. What we need is to talk about how to create jobs, how to make Nigeria better for the citizens.
“Let me thank Gov. Ikpeazu for what he is doing. Governance is about the people feeling you. It is about moving around, seeing it for yourself.
