That was because he was contesting against Jonathan that had SS and SE locked down, SW felt cheated cause they were no where near top 4 in Jonathan's govt. But in this case, both atiku and buhari are from the north. PDP traditionally gets sympathy from SS and SE but same can not be said of SW. If atiku had picked a VP from SW it would have countered the osibanjo/tinubu sentiment by reducing APC votes from say 65/70% to 50/55 while still having about 80/85% in SS and SE for PDP. But with was just played out it is a direct contest of survival between SW and SE meaning APC vote might just shoot up to say 80/85% instead of 65/70%. Again don't 4get SW has the highest number of registered voter next to NW. Buhari is NW, osibanjo is SW. If these permutations are to be correct then you should know PDP is trouble. PDP might eventually win more states but APC will have more counted votes and still meet the constitutional requirements.

eyeview:

But buhari had the votes of South west but you didn't complain when he still handed you the VP

Atiku is smart,he knows he's not winning any state in the west...so there's no room for betrayal because the west will zombienly follow buhari to daura next year...and there's no one(from the west) capable enough to compete with the minister of condolence and burial activities so he joined forces with SE&SS. the real battle now is the North.
PeterObi will succeed Atiku. the best candidate from the East. I love Atiku.

Miscalculation. South East was already in his pocket, who is he tryig to court? Obasanjo cannot win southwest for him because of Tinubu's clout but a SW VP would have been a master stroke. Anyway, What do I know
biggest mistake for atiku

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 ?

In Nigeria ,Voting are done on tribal sentiments. The West will not leave Osibanjo and Vote for Obi... The Northerners also dont like the igbos..

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.

The northerners will vote for Atiku. Everyone is not a tribal bigot

This is perfect
Nigeria has no reason not be the best country in Africa. We have yet another opportunity to decide which way our dear country heads.... Either further down to oblivion or back up into greatness. Let sentiment and tribe not influence your decision rather let the spirit of common zeal to rescue Nigeria be the ultimate factor in your decision making process. Atiku/ Obi all the way.

Igbos love Osibanjo irrespective of his tribe just that he can't do much as VP under Buhari so until he comes out as the presidential candidate let's all support Nigeiria

When did your west start deciding who rule Nigeria?.



Shagari won without the West, OBJ also won without the West. So what are you saying?
But you forgot both shagari and obj won massively in the north. Atiku is paper weight compared to PMB in that zone. Not even now that Buhari is the incumbent

Re: Atiku Picks Peter Obi As Running Mate by Kzealz(m): 4:08pm On Oct 12, 2018
SW seems to be the problem of this country.. the present administration is having a Fulani and a herder as the president.. and also the SW as the PV with lopsided appointment only living the SE with being the cook and drivers.... With all sense of humour and equity, Do u think the SW deserve the VP slot again even if they are consider to have a high number of voters... that's totally unfair... the fact the SE are regarded as slaves shouldn't be the reason why you guys will always treat us unfairly.... Una no get conscience??

marvinsync:



so ur saying
Yorubas are so stupid and shallow that they would vote for apc because PDP didn't choose a VP from their side?


So when I saw this comment I felt so insulted, like why would you generalize your perceived stupidity of one man to a whole tribe. Let's be more thoughtful and analytical before making comments.

I am quite happy Peter Obi is the running mate to Atiku, simply because he is a pragmatic and principled man.
He understands how a capitalist economy works and also understands that Government service is not to the exploitation of the massess.

You all can Google Peter Obi Speech on "The Platform" which was hosted by Covenant Christian Church last year.

It doesn't matter right now, Buhari may be all Anti-corruption and what not but it's obvious he lacks the capacity to really turn this nation around through sound economic policies, he's saving grace most times comes from PYO, but theirs only a little PYO can do in light of the Sycophants and supposed inner circle that whispers to that old man.
Re: Atiku Picks Peter Obi As Running Mate by omoharry(f): 4:09pm On Oct 12, 2018
SW if una like give a block vote to Buhari. No whahala!...who are you doing?..while you are suffering in this president dispensation, sey Osibanjo position as VP dey cushion the effect of the hardship in the South West?..you guys shouldnt be selfish, try and also think about others so that when your time comes others will think about you .It has been decided at the beginning before PDP finally was able to put thier house in order that the presidency will go to the Chairmanship will go to the South: North, The VP: South East,..why do you think the rule should be bent because you have osibanjo as substitute?how has it benefited the south west?...did he stop him from even speaking against the killings across the country..you guys should vote Buhari in again if you like and get ready to start sleeping with one eyes closed at night because Buhari will launched fully his plan to settle his headmen on any free land across the country either by hook or force and with the Support of his puppet Tinubu is vision in the SW will be realized..and the impending fulani/farmers clashes across region just will start..because your region did not get a VP slot which was not zone to your region but the SE in the first place.so for that you will mortgage your security and peace of mind to a fanatic..who is only interested in settlling his kinsmen across the country.

Tinubu and Lagos were there in 2015, but APC beat PDP by only a narrow margin in the South West. There was voter apathy in South East as turn out was very low in that region in 2015. With this decision, SE got the motivation they need to turn out and vote where Atiku will win comfortably. PDP will still get a good percentage of votes from the SW regardless. PDap has a good percentage of the North central states, and half the states in NE except Borno, Yobe and maybe Bauchi. APC can take the North West, but PDP will sure get a good number of votes in Kano. So putting all these into consideration, it was an excellent decision

Great choice. Let’s hope for a new Nigeria where there is respect for life, appreciation of our diversity and unity of purpose in closing the divide in the country. Unfortunately, Buhari is just too narrow minded and lacks the flexibility to lead a country like Nigeria. He is mentally unfit.

with combination, buhari will get less than 5% in South east and about 15 to 20% in ss. there will be voter apathy in South west. in north central and north east, 40-45 % and 45 to 55 votes for buhari respectively. buhari will clear north west with 60 to 65% votes. atiku is likely next president of nigeria.

Ghana former President Mahama lost the election with that mindset. The Volta Region are core NDC, during his tenure NDC felt that they already had the Volta Region in the kitty and then decided to do more projects in Kumasi etc (Core Opposition areas) in order to win over people in those areas.
Guess what happened, the area they felt they had in the kitty boycotted the election, they didn't vote for the opposition and didn't even vote for their own party.
The opposition won easy.
Lesson: Never take people for granted.
Ignoring the SE will backfire, there are no wrong or right answer. It's better to reward loyalty than try to win over the opposition.
