Governors elected on the platform of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in South-East geo-political zone have resolved to adopt cautious support for the party’s presidential standard bearer, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.

A source close to one of the three PDP governors confided in The Guardian that even before the meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari as part of the members of the National Economic Council (NEC), the governors agreed to take a middle course in the forthcoming presidential election.

The source said: “Part of the resolution of the governors is that they should not make financial commitment to presidential campaign of Atiku/Obi. They also agreed to ensure that there was no joint campaign promotional, especially billboards in their respective states.”


The source stated that the governors’ decision was informed by the need to preserve their political future and avert any adverse response from the ruling party in view of the electoral challenges they face in the hands of candidates from All Progressives Congress (APC) and All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in the zone.

He added that some of those who erected goodwill political campaign billboards featuring Atiku/Obi, the governors and other PDP candidates had been told to remove them while the message had gone round that pictures of the governors and the presidential candidates should not be promoted on the same materials.

However, when contacted about the development, the Director-General of South-East Governors’ Forum, Prof. Uche Ortuanya, denied that the governors were aligning towards a political party to achieve zonal integration, stressing that the “political future of the governors and economic integration of the zone are not mutually exclusive.”

He said: “It is not true. It is a wrong perception of what is going on because South-East people tend to look at the Governors’ Forum from a distance and as such do not understand the inner workings of the forum.

“Rather, the economic imperatives require that they come together more than political imperatives. Politics is only limited to the realms of elections and about individual positions. The forum operates as a regional bloc in the realms of the economy.

“Anybody can be in any party and politics is only limited to parties. We have three PDP governors, one each from APC and APGA. There is no justifiable premise for that imputation.” They can still survive politically and the zone would grow.”

If I were any of them, I would act same way and manner.

Athiefku's candidacy is doomed for crash right from the word go; and every sane person should know this.

No need to talk too much but as I've said on many occasions here, PMB will have won the election by 12 noon on feBuhari 16.

Athiefku will not get 40% of the votes in Adamawa and won't get 30% in the entire North. The governors are in better position than you and I to know this and it will be sheer idiocy for them to invest their state's and personal resources in a FAILED PROJECT.

Think!

Who can blame them? These are seasoned politicians we are talking about here, whom can see the handwriting on the wall that the Atiku-Obi project is DOA. Let's be sincere and pragmatic here please, if you were in their shoes what else would you rather do? Support a candidate that is destined to fail

This report may not be far from the truth, considering that Uche Secondus recently raised an alarm about some PDP governors being 'forced' into 'secret deals' by the APC. Though I doubt the concerned governors were coerced as alleged, but are rather taking this position due to polticial realities. Like they say, there is no smoke without fire. undecided

Who are your Igbo brethren? Take that rubbish and get out of here! Fake friends and people everywhere. Igbos have suddenly become your brethren because it suits your narrative to deceive people and get this useless man Buhari back in Aso rock. But we are wiser now. Vote Buhari all you want.

7 Igbo states are locked down for Atiku. Block votes gan gan!


THIS IS FAKE NEWS BY THE WAY!

Story of my life. Igbos are 100% in support of Atiku! We voted against Buhari in 2015 and we will vote against him again come 2019. You know why? Buhari was an imbeccile prior 2015 and became a worse imbeccile post 2015! We do not need any presidency come 2023 as far as it is from Buhari. Nothing good can ever come out of an accursed and cursed fellow from birth like Buhari. We Igbos won't even mind mortgaging our turn to run for Presidency by 2023 all to make sure the Northerners remain in Power! Even if Atiku looses now, we will still give him the support he needs come 2023. We will keep on supporting him till he becomes a President. Who presidency help? Shey Yorubas think they have sense? Lets see a Yoruba man then compete agains a Northerner and see how he wins!

We ascribe too much importance to these governors, a group of men who were there with all the government apparatus and one man came from London and took influence from them, apat from Anambra state that has had a semblance of governance since 1999, the rest Eastern States governors needs their heads examined, iam from abia and very ashamed of myself and anyone who has ruled that state since 1999
