Former President, Goodluck Jonathan, has appealed to the leaders of the PDP in the South-east zone to support the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, in his choice of Peter Obi as his running mate, to ensure victory for PDP in next year’s general elections.
The former president’s appeal follows a statement issued on Saturday by leaders of the party in the zone stating that they were not properly consulted before Peter Obi’s nomination was made public.
In a statement addressed to party members which he personally signed, the former president counseled against insisting on obtaining a zonal endorsement for a vice presidential nomination, adding that it is the prerogative of the presidential candidate to select the candidate he believes will help him to achieve his vision and goals for the nation.
