Apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has said that the Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 2023 general elections, Atiku Abubakar, is wasting his time.
This was contained in a statement made available to journalists on Friday by Okechukwu Isiguzoro, Secretary-General, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide.
Isiguzoro who described the PDP presidential candidate as a victim of nemesis, said he was reaping the fruit of what he did to former President Goodluck Jonathan in 2015.
“Nemesis has caught up with Atiku Abubakar after he treacherously rounded hijacked some governors in 2015 to provide an opposition as against the re-election of former President Goodluck Jonathan by forming alliances with then ACN, led by Bola Tinubu, CPC led by Muhammadu Buhari and ANPP led by Ogbonnaya Onu, a faction of APGA led by Rochas Okorocha and the then New PDP, which he led.”
“He was able to lead former Governor Chibuike Amaechi of Rivers, former Governor Rabiu Kwankwanso of Kano, former Governor Aliyu Wamakko of Sokoto, former Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed of Kwara and former Governor Murtala Nyako of Adamawa against their own party, PDP.
“Now nature has finally come up against him and he is reaping the reward; let him stop wasting his time and resources,” Isiguzoro said.
He alleged that God was using the G-5 governors led by Nyesom Wike to deal with Atiku “over what he did to Jonathan”.
“Ndigbo commends the G5 Governors led by Governor Wike for their opposition to Atiku Abubakar’s Presidency in the 2023 election.
“Whatever Atiku had sowed in 2015, he is now reaping in 2023. He and the same gang members that destroyed Jonathan’s chances in 2015 have also undermined the PDP zoning formula that favours the South East,” he said.
He, however, told Wike and other members of G-5 to save the nation from imminent danger ahead of 2023 elections.
“These Governors have crafted their names in gold by thwarting the heinous plans to nullify the gentleman’s agreement of rotational Presidency between the North and the South which was the basis for peace and sustainable democracy in Nigeria since 1999.
“As a serial presidential contestant, Atiku should start planning for 2027.”
