We applaud the gesture of PDP and Alh Atiku Abubakar on the nomination of our son and mentor, Mr Peter Obi as the running mate in the 2019 Presidential election; this nomination is the respect accorded to aspirations of millions of Igbo scattered across length and breadth of the country.
The jubilation that erupted with the news of Peter Obi as Atiku’s running mate, across the South East shows that both youths and agitators accept it is the best pair for PDP to win 2019 Presidential election.
We will ensure that this respect accorded to aspirations of our people will yield better dividends for PDP because the whole Igbo youths will support Atiku and Peter Obi in 2019.
We call Igbo Youths to remain law abiding and prepare to ensure that the duo of Atiku and Peter Obi are returned to Aso rock in 2019, as President and Vice President.
We will reach out to the Arewa Youths, Ijaw, Middle belt, Ibibio, Yoruba Youths under the Nigeria Ethnic Nationalities Youth organizations for the success of Atiku and Peter Obi Project 2019.”
