By Valentine Amanze

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), South-East Nigeria, has reaffirmed support for the candidacy of Alhaji Abukakar Atiku and Mr. Peter Obi, warning those trying to sabotage their efforts to beware of the wrath of the people.
Rising from the combined meeting of the Zonal and State Working Committees of the party in its Secretariat at Enugu, the Zonal Chairman, Deacon Austin Umahi, declared: “The South East PDP will aggressively give all their support to the victory of the party in the South-East.”
The chairman said that the party was lucky to have two qualified candidates vying for the presidency.
His words: “Alhaji Abubakar has verifiable records. Mr. Peter Obi’s performance in Anambra State is there for everybody to see. Nobody is more qualified than both of them among other presidential candidates.”
Advising other parties to keep-off the South East, Umahi said: "Hold me by my words; you will now see a different dance step that will tell other parties that they have no place in the South-East. Every stakeholder must go and deliver his polling booth.”
Appealing to all PDP members to join hands for the victory of the party, he said that now was not the time of “trafficating right and turning left.
“The PDP must get it right now.”
Collaborating the position of the Zonal chairman, the Anambra State PDP Chairman, Chief Ndubisi Nwobu, said that it was now incumbent on all PDP members to put in all they have towards the success of the party in all the parts of the country.
Meanwhile, the Vice Presidential candidate of the PDP, Mr. Peter Obi, has called on the leaders of Nigeria to make little sacrifices for the progress and development of the country.
Obi gave the advice at the just concluded crusade by the Lord’s Chosen Church, at Mgbidi in Imo State.
Obi said that though the problems of the country were many, that they required a committed leadership to begin the processes of solving the problems and within a short time, the country would be back on track.
Besides, he identified some of the problems to be hinged on poor economic policies.
He said even when good policies were put in place that the leaders lacked the courage to implement them as they should.
Regretting the spate of unemployment, restiveness, and agitations in the country, the former governor traced them to faulty economic policies and implementation and assured Nigerians that as a wealth creator and one of the biggest employers of Labour in Nigeria, that Alhaji Abubakar Atiku knows how to solve the problems of the country as contained in his Action Plan.
The General Overseer, Pastor Lazarous Muoka, thanked Obi for his efforts to always be close to God.
He pointed out that even as a governor that Obi had not missed their programmes.
