South East can’t afford to waste our votes for Peter Obi – Ekweremadu
Senator Ike Ekweremadu, former Deputy Senate President, has said the South East will not vote for Peter Obi in the forthcoming presidential election in 2023.
Ekweremadu said this in a short interview with newsmen making the rounds on social media.
The former Deputy Senate President acknowledged that Obi is a credible presidential candidate but the South East will rather vote for the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, than throw its votes for Obi.
“I can assure you that the South East will vote for PDP, we ask ourselves if Obi wins the election and the answer is no.
“Can the East afford to throw away our votes and be sentimental about a matter that concerns our people, our children and future? No.
