South East Votes Alone Can’t Give Us Presidency – Osita Chidoka

Osita Chidoka, a former minister of aviation, says the southeast should continue to communicate with other regions of the country to increase its prospects of winning the presidency.

During an appearance on Channels Television’s Politics Today, he stated that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has neglected the area ahead of the 2023 elections. Chidoka says that partnership with other areas is essential for the southeast to elect a president.

The PDP leader stated on Thursday that the southeast will be recalibrating its representation in the party and continuing its vigorous campaign for a president from the region.

“Therefore, I estimate that four to eight years separate us from the presidency. We require a qualified applicant. We must continue to build upon our past accomplishments. We must strengthen ourselves so that we can produce the candidate who will tell the nation, “It is our turn.” And that our turn will be fought on the grounds of Eagle Square; wherever the primary takes place,” Chidoka remarked.

“We hope that candidate will be able to attract votes from other regions of the nation, as votes from the southeast will not make us president. No matter how many votes we receive from the southeast, we must convince the rest of the country to endorse our goals.

Osita Chidoka, who remarked in the wake of Governor Ifeanyi Okowa’s emergence as the PDP’s vice-presidential candidate, feels that the governor of Delta State is perfectly equipped to serve as Atiku’s running mate.

According to him, having worked at the municipal, state, and federal levels of government, Okowa is qualified for the post.

He said, “He provides an intriguing mix of experience.”
