shocked


Very smart decision from ATIKU
If Atiku Continues with this SMARTNESS, then winning 2019 elections would'nt be a problem
Even Though Peter Obi Never achieved any thing while in power during his tenure as the Governor of Anambra, Igbos and Easterners will still vote for him because Peter Obi is From the East!!
We already know that at least 55% of people who voted buhari during the last election are regretting it already, so we can admit that the reverse will be the case come2019.




PMB had less baggage than Atikulate, yet choosing his vice from d SE, never got him anywhere!


I really don't care, where his vp comes from! I'm Osinbanjo for 2023

PETER OBI NOT A BAD CHOICE BUT HE SHOULD ALSO REMEMBER TO WOO OKONJO NGOZI FOR CBN GOVERNOR..

THAT WOULD MAKE A BETTER MATCH

I doubt NOI will take that position... Would have love to have her as a VP sha!

atiku kill himself by doing such nonsense because sw cannot denied their own son as vp in apc and that is why by 2023 power will go back to sw.

They want PDP to go against their initial zoning arrangement so that they will capitalize on that and project the lifeless one back to Aso Rock, it won’t happen. Atiku/Obi is a goal !!!

Kai Walahi! Atiku don kill us by picking this Peter Oboy of all people. That man nah very stingy person. How would guys get easy money from the incoming government?

Lol.
And you think Buhari will not also get votes from the south East?
Or you think Buhari ministers and political appointees in the south east will not also work for their boss.

Buhari has Obiano fully on his side now and it will be an interesting battle even in that Anambra state.


Atiku will lose north completely now because the northerners don't even want to have anything to do with the Igbo's.

When most of you talk like this, you sound like the so called the obaino, ministers and Co will be the one doing the voting. Oga, this one Na all man for himself. There is hunger in the land and I know Nigeria will unite for a common cause that threaten their life like Ebola disease.

When Ebola broke out, no one dare mention such nonsense because they know if they do nothing, they will be dead by few days. They united to eradicate Ebola and I see that happening again!

It's funny that you think Atiku made this decision in a vacuum ... at his service are are at least a dozen astute political players (from all over Nigeria) with whom he's done the math. I'd assume their opinions are a little informed than any of us commentators (most of who cannot even win estate chairman elections)
Exactly my thought, but honestly nigerians need a president that is enlightened

The thing is Ngozi Okonjo Iweala is more generally liked in Nigeria and also a prominent figure in the international scene. Educated people would have seen her as a step in the right direction. I mean those in the south west. If Obasanjo is willing to fully back Atiku then am sure at least 40% of the votes from the SW can be gotten. Let the south south and south east come out in their numbers to back Atiku. This has been the problem of the south south and south east. They sit at home during election day whereas in the north even the children are made to come out in their number to vote and yet we cry foul when it doesn't go our way. After following the primaries closely I am pained I didn't get a PVC
Obasanjo is useless in South west....he never got votes from South west when he was president

Good. Now Promise SW senate president to balance the equation. It:s only OMO ALE JATI JATI that will vote Buhari come 2019 in SW.

Ego sir. What did SW gain from pdp 16 years of rule? Jonathan gave all the strategic postions to his ipob brothers. You think a sensible yoruba will throw away having peeps like Fashola and Osibanjo in government to a Peter Obi right? You are the omo ale from obvious reasons

From the way I see it, Atiku's hope of winning is dead on arrival. His candidature is only being projected in the South East and the South South. I'm almost certain he can never get 25% of total vote casts in 2 out of the 6 Western States and his less than 30% electoral value in the North is another indicator that he's not getting anywhere with all these hypes. It would have been a tough election if Kwakwanso had been the contender as the guy commands a cult followership in the North,most especially, the state with highest number of registered voters.
For those thinking Atiku can get meaningful votes in the Southwest, they've gotta have a rethink as the region has some how benefitted from this government than the previous one and as such, wouldn't want to jeopardize the chances they already got,as they're fully aware a bird in hand is better than 10 in the air.
If you question my logic,you need to understand that the Nigerian politics is about what you can get for yourself and your people,it's the way it's been since Independence.

Been waiting for this great news. I will be going for a plate of nkwobi after work for this news. I am not from anambra bit I know that Peter obi if far better than osibanjo from his handiwork in anambra. It will please u guys that non of Peter obi kids get job from him, he leaves them to go job hunting. Just listen to his speech on the channels the platform.

Executive governor & VP are two different things all together. While a governor is in charge, a VP is a "Boi, boi". Though I like Obi. He's sound & showed great management prowess during his stint in Anambra, politically, this choice might backfire. PDP has SE already in their kitty. They needed to woo the SW. With this choice, SW will prefer their son, Osibanjo to anybody, no matter how saintly & great, from SE. Moreso, with PMB/Osibanjo ticket, SW can dream of a shot at the presidency by 2023 after PMB. This scenario is lost with Atiku's choice bcoz surely he will go for second tenure that will terminate by 2027. After which, the Igbos will lay claim through Obi.

What about people in the west?

They will leave Osibanjo and vote for Obi?

There will be a block vote for buhari in SW...

Atiku has lost it.... Wrong calculation.

If Atiku had picked from the SW it won't have been suicide. The Igbos would have stayed their hands during this election.
Atiku knows that a lot of Nigerians can't stand another 4 years under Buhari, it will be mass suffering.
SW voters won't vote Atiku and sure won't vote Buhari. They will just thumb print for APC Governor and will ignore Buhari.

Why give vp to south East when u already have their votes.

VP should have been used to get massive votes from South West

Why is it that you did not clamour for APC to pick VP from SE since SW is already APC, greedy man.

And you think SE votes will make atiku a winner? With this, theres nothing like split votes in SW. Buhari is winning SW with 80%.

He didn't win 80 percent where we were seeing his as a saint, is it now we have seen his level of incompetence and underground corruption that he's going to win 80 percent ?

Since you are neither Hausa or Yoruba nor a Muslim -=
Then you must be An ipob pig. From their comments you shall know them. Always wailing.

"He who the gods want to destroy, will first run mad mentally " Ipobs will out of natural hatered for accountability and legitimate means of livelihood. vote for Atiku, however Yoruba's have a lot to loose if they vote for Atiku, a such it would have been wise for Atiku, to give Yoruba VP, so that at least 40% of Yoruba's vote will go to him.

I wanted Adeshina, but Atiku is right.

PDP does not exist in the West. Even if he gives it to the West, PDP will lose. It's better he commits his all to a region where he will reap almost all

It's just like Buhari pickng and easterner as VP. He will still lose in the east. Atiku calculated well, to me
