Ohanaeze Endorses Peter Obi As Atiku's VP




The Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Anambra State Chapter, has described some Igbo Presidential candidates in the 2019 general elections as midgets.

The Igbo socio-cultural organisation at a press conference in Awka, Anambra State, likened such candidates with “somebody trying to go to Lagos from Awka by bicycle.”
Speaking at the conference, the State President of the group, Damian Okeke-Ogene, stated that the chapter had decided to support Peter Obi, who was nominated as the running mate to the presidential candidate of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar.

Okeke-Ogene said, “You know in this presidential race that some contestants are like somebody trying to go to Lagos from here by bicycle, while others are like somebody trying to do the same journey by aircraft.

“So, we have chosen the person we shall support in that election based on his acceptability, capacity and chances to achieve result.”
