A head of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, and former Minister of Aviation, Osita Chidoka, noted that the Southeast must continue to liaise with other parts of the country to improve the region’s chances of winning the presidential seat.

The former minister said this on the Politics Today channel on Thursday, amid allegations that the region had been marginalized by the PDP, ahead of the 2023 elections.

He said that collaboration with other regions will be essential to have a president from the Southeast.

“What I think the Southeast will do is recalibrate our presence in the PDP and continue our strong pressure for a president from the Southeast.

The Catholic Diocese of Enugu condemned the comments made by Rev. Foot. Ejike Mbaka on Peter Obi’s presidential ambition.

Mbaka, director of Chaplaincy at the Enugu Ministry of Catholic Worship, on Wednesday described Labor Party presidential candidate Obi as a ‘stingy man’, declaring that unless God ceases to exist, Obi would never smell the president’s seat.

According to him, it was better to have an old man as president than a ‘stingy young man’.
