A leading pan-Igbo organisation, Igbo Bu Ogbo Sociocultural Foundation (IBI) has hailed the presidential flag-bearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, for picking his running mate from the south-eastern part of the country.

In a statement released on Friday evening in Abuja, the nation’s capital, signed by Dr. Law Mefor and Chidi Omeje, Chancellor and Secretary respectively, Igbo Bu Igbo noted that the Southeast parades an array of eminently qualified men and women who could be vice president of the country and make the needed difference.

Describing the choice of former Anambra State Governor, Mr. Peter Obi, as the right one, the organisation noted: “The country is in a dire need of self-rediscovery, unity and economic revitalisation. The situation calls for a president and a vice with track records of achievements, astute leadership capabilities and bridge building capacity to bring divergent parts of the country back working together again.”

“The nation needs to urgently industrialise and develop, create jobs for the teeming unemployed youths and give hope to Africa and the Black race at large. An Igbo Vice President will surely help to get the nation on the path of development, industrialisation and job creation.

“A southeast Vice President will also be a fitting reward for the steadfastness and commitment of the zone to the Peoples Democratic Party despite all the odds,” the statement added.
