Atiku will hand over to Igbo – Adolphus Wabara


The acting Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Adolphus Wabara, has advised Ndigbo not to be in a hurry over the 2023 presidential bid as the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, will hand over to them after his tenure in 2031 if he wins.


Wabara, who was a former Senate President, was speaking on Tuesday in Umuahia, Abia State capital, at the inauguration of the Atiku/Okowa Presidential Campaign Council.


He said, “There is no way Ndigbo could get the President. (During the the PDP presidential primary) Ndigbo had 95 votes but only 14 was given to an Igbo aspirant, Anyim Pius Anyim.


“If you look at the logic, I get confused that Abia is confused. Let us go to where the president will emerge.


“We should use our brain to follow it. Let us show course when he has promised to hand over to an Igbo man.


“We should not be in a hurry, but he will do it. Let us begin now to look for the black goat now that it is day time.


“Our overall leader is a man of God who will not victimise us”.


He urged all PDP candidates to live by the mantra and show that “Abia is PDP and PDP is Abia”.


He noted that Nigeria is not a one-party state and has 18 presidential candidates, adding, “So, all must vote according to your conscience and according to party.


“PDP is the oldest party in Nigeria. If you look at our antecedents, you will understand what is happening in the party”.


Addressing the members of the Atiku/Okowa Presidential Campaign Council and the Abia State Atiku/Okowa Presidential Campaign structure management committee during the inauguration, the South East Coordinator of the Campaign Council and Senator representing Abia Central at National Assembly, Theodore Orji, said Abia would remain a PDP state.


He said, “We have a presidential candidate, Atiku and our brother, the vice presidential candidate and the sitting governor of Delta State, Ifeanyi Okowa.


“The party brought out our candidate and it is our duty to support him.”


The state coordinator of the Campaign Council in Abia, Charles Ogbonna, advised all to be faithful party men, adding, “I have seen the handwriting on the wall that Atiku is going to win.”
