No apprehensiveness in S/East over Atiku’s 6-year plan – Ex-Rep





A chieftain of the PDP and former Member of the House of Representatives, Greg Egu, has described as unfounded and baseless, a report that there is anxiety in the South East over the six-year action plan of the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
Egu said the plan would in no way truncate 2023 Igbo presidential aspiration.

Egu, in a statement in Owerri, said the Igbo were not worried about Atiku’s plan but were concerned with enthroning a leadership that would restore their pride of place in Nigeria.
Reacting to fears that Atiku’s plan amounted to tenure elongation, Egu said, “Nothing can be more fallacious than this. In the first place, the issue of whether Atiku Abubakar will stay beyond 2023 is not the immediate concern of the people of the zone.

“Their focus at the moment is the emergence of Atiku as the next President of Nigeria come May 29, in fulfilment of their quest for a leadership that will fully restore their pride of place in Nigeria’s corporate landscape,” he said.
“Of course, the zone has its expectations, fears and aspirations, but these are not subject to jaundiced speculations. The support of the South East and its people for Atiku is total and unconditional; and they have absolute confidence that he will do nothing to hurt them politically” he added.
