Emeka Ihedioha, a former Imo State Governor and former Deputy Speaker, House of Representatives, has told his people not to support Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of Labour Party.
According to him, anyone working for the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, is a saboteur. The Supreme Court-sacked governor stated this in a video seen on Tuesday, while instructing his kinsmen about the “dangers” of voting for Peter Obi in the general election.
Ihedioha was overheard telling his listeners that Igbos projecting the Labour Party Presidential candidate were taking a risk of their lives. He claimed that there were only two recognised political parties in Nigeria, the All Progressives Congress, APC and the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
“Nigeria is in search for leadership; we cannot stay away; I understand the ethics, It is either we get involved or we are not involved. There are two parties; the PDP and APC. Those who don’t know should know. APC is the name of criminals, rogues among other names. If you vote any other place, you are a saboteur.
“After Atiku Abubakar the next president will come from South East of Nigeria. That is the gospel in Accra (Ghana) if you somebody tells you any another thing; that person must win in Zamfara, Sokoto, Kebbi, Borno, Yobe, Adamawa, Kaduna, Kano, Katsina, Niger, Kwara, Plateau Benue, Jigawa, and among other Northern states before you can be a president of Nigeria. Emotions and sentiment don’t win elections; you must be realistic to win elections. You must plan to win elections and that is where I belong.”
