Concede VP Slot To Southwest, George Urges Southeast by Agritech(m): 6:24pm On Oct 11
Former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Olabode, has pleaded with the party’s stakeholders in the Southeast region to concede the position of running mate to Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the party’s standard-bearer, to Southwest.

George, who made the appeal yesterday in a phone discussion with The Guardian, said it was imperative of the Southeast zone to concede the running mate slot to Southwest now on the grounds that in the event that Atiku wins the presidential election next year and takes eight years in office, whenever the pendulum shifts back to the South “the presidential slot would automatically go to Southeast.

“But if the region decides to take the vice president slot now, it would be awkward for it to say after spending eight years as running mate that it would go ahead to produce a president.


“Such calculation will not work, because a region cannot produce the vice president and president for 16 years running.”

George therefore appealed to the stakeholders in the Southeast to consider the future and on the benefit of doubt that the party would trash the ruling All Progressives Congress in the next general election, Igbo people should allow the Yoruba produce Atiku’s running mate.

The former deputy national chairman said: “Putting into consideration the importance of numbers in the coming election and the need to defeat APC, Southwest stand a better advantage in terms of registered number of voters.

Mbanu! They can't try it. Atiku can't try it. PDP can't try it.

Pick VP from any region that is not SE, and see how we all will boycott the election. Whether you pick from SW or not, they will vote for APC because of their supremacy there. And they won't trade Osibanjo who they see as a technocrat for another Yoruba VP.

Atiku please don't allow these APC miscreants cajole you into picking VP from SW. All the people shouting for SW VP are all APC members.

You need SE and SS votes. May God give Atiku the wisdom of Solomon.


Let's ATIKULATE


Edited: To all you saying you already have Igbos. It doesn't work that way with Igbos. If Atiku picks VP from SW, Igbos will see it as another marginalization and lose hope in Nigeria again. Yes, we won't vote for Buhari/APC because he killed our kinsmen with python dance, but we will either boycott the elections or we intentionally vote for another party (remember Oby Ezekwesili has a party) and continue the struggle for Referendum or Restructuring. The only thing that will pull an Igbo man out of his house to the polling unit is when he has a brother running for election. Atiku shouldn't do anything that will make him lose SE/SS votes....no matter what:

The PDP unfortunately have no state currently in the SW. It just makes no sense politically. It's just akin to saying the APC should cede the APC VP to the SE to split that regions's vote since the SW would rather vote for APC anyway.

This is a tight national election and it would be in the interest of both major candidates to come with their strong, A games:

APC already with SW VP and PDP with SE VP.

Where the SS votes go would determine who wins in the south - and that's likely a no-brainer.

It's called Double Chance in Bet9ja. grin This guy's are greedy and funny at the same time.

PDP gave Yorubas and OBJ complete 8 years even though they never supported them for once.


They abused Igbos that we aren't loyal to their regional party. grin Their own marginalization is about to start.


Igbos have paid their dues in PDP and it's time for them to reap what they have sown. Yet these clowns are complaining about marginalization.

Yorubas should be ready to sojourn into political wilderness for the next 12years cos after Atiku is SE presidency.

Don't worry George, when Atiku is done with his eight years with a VP from the southeast( that is if he is not kicked out after 4 years) and the presidency is zoned to the south we will know what to do, eight years is a looonnnnngggg time to figure out the next step OK?

This yoruba people think say na only them waka come, as if after Atiku's rule, the south west will emerge as the flag bearer for the next presidential election and south south and south east go sitdone dey look them like mumu.
