Peter Obi: South East Governors, Leaders Meeting Deadlocked by Welrez(m): 6:01am On Oct 14, 2018
A meeting of leaders of the South-east in Enugu has ended in deadlock, PREMIUM TIMES has learnt.

The meeting was hastily convened on Saturday following the announcement of ex-governor Peter Obi of Anambra State as the running mate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, on Friday

The meeting had in attendance PDP governors and legislators from the South-east and other eminent members of the party from the zone.

Held at the Enugu home of Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, the meeting ended without any resolution regarding the nomination of Mr Obi.

In attendance were governors Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, David Umahi and Okezie Ikpeazu of Enugu, Ebonyi, and Abia states respectively.

After more than one hour of deliberations, they did not reject or accept Mr Obi’s nomination.

Briefing reporters on the outcome, Mr Umahi said the leaders of the zone were not consulted before the said nomination.

Mr Umahi, who is also the chairman of the South-east Governors Forum, said Mr Abubakar would meet with South-east leaders over the choice of his running mate.

The governor said the meeting of South-east PDP stakeholders was to brainstorm on the choice of the former governor of Anambra State as Mr Abubakar’s running mate.

He said both PDP governors in the zone and other stakeholders were shocked over the news of a vice presidential slot given to Ndigbo whereas no formal notice to that effect was given.

Mr Umahi said Mr Abubakar sent in a message during their meeting informing them that he was out of the country for a short period.

He said he pleaded with them to remain calm that he would be coming down to the zone to dialogue with the leaders.

“We saw news flying up and down saying that our presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has picked a running mate from the zone,” Mr Umahi said.

“We were shocked because we were not consulted. While we were meeting, Atiku sent message that he travelled out of the country for a short period. He promised to come down and meet with South-east leaders.”

The Zonal Vice chairman of PDP, Augustine Umahi, said the leaders of the party in the zone saw the news of Mr Obi’s nomination as the PDP’s running mate on social media.

“Our leaders are saying that we are not yet aware that such a thing (Obi’s appointment) happened.

“We have gotten in touch him (Atiku), he is traveling tonight and he promised that when comes back we shall meet in that.

“Peter Obi is our son, and is from South-east, we are not rejecting or accepting him but we are saying is that we are not aware, you cannot shave a man in his absence,” he said.

I can bet these ones want to feel important too and so must be consulted and their permission asked.

Atiku should bear in mind, SE politics is a different terrain devoid of undisputed leaders and kingsmakers, these supposed leaders advising him cant even dictate for their extended families talk more of SE.

He would loose the whole of SE/SS if he reverses his decision for a less credible SE candidate as he has opted his VP from the region.

I like the fact that they were not consulted if not they would have put a questionable person. Peter Obi is a man of honor and their fear is that he will not steal for them.

We are already Atikulated

Lol

See them self-loathing buffoons want to form activity of relevance and leaders.

If Obi is not good enough because you arrogant guys weren't consulted first, put out a name you guys have consulted and agreed on to Atiku na. Why will that take a meeting into the next day.

Very stupid self-serving and power drunk goats.

If its not me, we could as well lose it.

One news, three front line pages smh for zombies
Let me educate you people a little.
In Igboland, govs don't tell people what to do because the Igbo person look up to nobody but God (if you doubt me ask Rochas why Buhari lost IMO state yet APC won govnership). Hence we the South east people will vote massively for Atiku/Obi come 2019.
Please stop wasting your time, create topics that will market your Lord and Savior Buhari instead of wasting time on the rancour by a few irrelevant govs.

First time in a very long time southeast got top position and theyl are killing themselves over it, the last time in the senate, they changed senate President up to five times. Even southsouth region with different ethnicity and tribes quickly united behind Jonathan but our brother from the east don't feel so for their own. Funny thing is that they will carry another person matter for head during the race.

Truly, these south east leaders wants to miss the chance of a life time if they fail to take advantage of this opportunity to get a shot at the presidency. It's time to put aside acrimony and pettiness and vote for the winning team - Atiku/Obi 2019.

The disunity and greed within Ndigbo is just annoying. Who are these bunch of jokers?

What is the point of consulting them before a VP is selected? For what use? Obi was selected not because of his tribe, but his capabilities. Should there be a ceremony afterwards? This is how they will spoil this thing for everybody now.

Give a man a gift, he says "well I'm not rejecting it, but I wasn't consulted first." Does that make sense?

Always making a mess of opportunities.

Elsewhere, no one would have heard leaders from the zone were not consulted. Mpako is always a manifestation of foolishness. The moment you think u know a lot, is when u r a quintessential fool. K'anyi gwoonu onwe anyi ara a na ayi anyi. Umahi my gov should go & sit down.

You all don't get it.
This isn't about VP, they know that with a brilliant performance peter obi will likely become a major contender for the presidency when the time comes.
This is more than 2019, and it shows the greed of the so called Igbo governors.
