The South East Youth Leader of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chidiebere Egwu, on Tuesday said the choice of Nigeria’s former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, as the PDP presidential candidate and former Governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi, as his running mate is the best choice to rebuild Nigeria’s ailing economy and address other challenges facing the country.

He expressed optimism that Atiku would defeat President Muhammadu
Buhari in 2019 as Nigerians were disenchanted with the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led government which he said has brought untold hardship, increased unemployment and poverty in the country.

The youth leader who spoke in Abakaliki, Ebonyi State, also noted that the youths voted for Atiku massively during the last party national convention of the
because of Atiku’s restructuring agenda and his capacity to rescue the country from the challenges of insecurity, abuse of human rights, rule of law, starvation and unemployment.

Egwu also assured Nigerians that with Obi as Atiku’s running mate, Ndigbo will vote out Buhari in 2019, as according to him, Nigerians have suffered under the Buhari’s administration.

He further noted that though there were skirmishes from the leaders of the
South east on nomination of Obi as the vice presidential candidate, the youths of the zone were not also happy on the way the youth leaders were being relegated to the background in any decision or issue that concerns the zone.

Egwu, who’s also the deputy national president PDP youths, blasted
those criticizing the Governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi; Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremmadu, and other leaders of the Southeast over their insistence that the process of Obi’s nomination didn’t follow due process, stressing that it amounted to shaving one’s head in his absence.

He said: “We voted for Atiku for some reasons and majority of the youths voted for him. He’s result-oriented. He’s not deterred by what the oppositions are saying and he’s making sure he rescues Nigeria from the challenges it’s facing, especially in economy, insecurity, rule of law among others

“We are committed to making sure we deliver him, and that’s where we
stand.  All the 36 youth state leaders and FCT and the leaders of youths in the six political zones for which I am one of them, have agreed that to work for Atiku and canvass for votes and supports for our presidential candidate.”

“Nigerians are now yearning for positive changes because they’re disenchanted with the APC government which is full of deceit, disappointment, nepotism and visionlessness, abuse of human rights, fake promises among others. A party that believes in manipulating results but this time, whoever thinks that he will manipulate results, should write his will because we won’t tolerate that. We have suffered too much under APC, and we can’t guarantee the future of children if the party continues.”
