A Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Mr Olisa Agbakoba has said that the promise of the presidential candidate of the PDP, to the Southeast was preferable to those being made by the APC and its candidate, President Muhammadu Buhari.
He said this in a statement issued to journalists on Friday. He said Buhari had nit done much for the Southeast zone.
Reacting to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo’s appeal to the Southwest to vote Buhari in 2019 in order to secure a Yoruba presidency in 2023, Agbakoba posited that the VP was only making efforts to deliver his zone to the APC which in turn favours him.
He however added that it is left for the people of the Southwest to decide what they want.
Even tbough he described Atiku’s alleged promise to do a term and hand over to the Southeast as a political statement, Agbakoba urged the Southeast to vote for Atiku.
His words: “I advice the South East to vote for the PDP. What has the APC done for the South East? Atiku has promised to restructure the country.
“PDP may not be a better party but the vice presidency and promise of restructuring are major attractions”.
