Chief Sam Ohuabunwa

Presidential aspirant, Chief Sam Ohuabunwa, yesterday, said that the people of the North would support the Southeast zone to produce the president of the country in the 2023 general elections.

Ohuabunwa stated this when he met with the executives of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Ebonyi State chapter, as part of his consultations to actualize his ambition.

He disclosed that Northerners have assured him that they would support the Southeast in 2023 because it is the turn of the zone.

He, therefore, called on the people of Southeast to speak with one voice in order not to miss 2023, which he described as the best opportunity for the president of Igbo extraction.

Ohuabunwa who is the convener of the New Nigeria Group said: “We need to change, we need to revolutionize, we need to change our attitude to politics. We must seek to put the right people with the right PDP in position. The people in the North are telling me that they are tired of their leaders, that they have had more leaders in national politics than anybody else, but they don’t have anything to show for it. They still have the poorest poverty, the worst healthcare. Everything is terrible. So, telling them it must be another Northerner, they don’t buy them, they want to try somewhere else.

“And the world is saying, let us give the Southeast a chance, Nigerians are saying let us give Southeast a chance. This is our best chance, this is our best opportunity and we must rise up spiritually. One of the painful things I have is that it is the Igbo man who says that he can’t be president.

“The Southeast says we don’t want Nigeria, we don’t want this. Gentlemen, it is going to be too bad if we allow this opportunity to slip from us, this is the best opportunity and God has sanctioned it that come 2023, a man from Southeast, an Igbo man, will be the an occupant of Aso Villa. It may be me, it may be somebody else, only God knows.”

He called on political parties to give a level playing ground to all aspirants to produce right people in all the elective positions in the general election.

Staff of the National Chairman, Senator Iyorchia Ayu, on Tuesday, rejected copies of the widely publicized letters returning various sums ranging from N28.8 million to N36 million representing three years of housing allowances of NWC members.

Vanguard gathered that the letters written by the Deputy National Chairman (South) Taofeek Arapaja; National Vice Chairman (South South), Chief Dan Orbih; National Vice Chairman (South West) and National Women Leader, Prof. Stella Affah-Attoe, last week were only taken to the National Chairman’s office this morning.

A source in the party’s National Secretariat who confided in Vanguard said, “Arapaja and the National Woman’s leader’s letters in which they said they were returning their housing allowance which they shared on social media last week was just brought to the office this morning (Tuesday).

“Arapaja’s letter which was written on PDP letterhead was sent via courier. The man is still here.

“That’s what he could have sent through his secretary if mischief was not intended

“They had lied that they submitted their letters to the chairman. It’s today they are struggling to.

“How can the Chairman receive letters from his colleagues via courier?”
