A Pan-Igbo think tank group known as the Izu Umunna Cultural Association of Nigeria has said its members living in northern Nigeria will vote for the Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar in 2019.

 

The group in a statement signed by its President, Patrick Ugo Ihekuna stated that, “let it be said that come 2019, Ndigbo in the North with Izu Umunna in the forefront, will reward the Waziri with our total support that we believe will impact positively on the outcome of the electoral battle.”

The group while facilitating with the former Vice President for emerging as the presidential candidate of the party also commended him for selecting the former Governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi as running mate.

The statement explained that though it appreciates the views of those who felt they were not fully consulted before Obi’ selection, it urged them to be patient as there will be room for further consultations in the nearest future.

“These are perilous times in the history of our country Nigeria. We therefore hope that every patriot will see the need for sacrifice that will enthrone a truly redemptive team for our country,” it stated.
