A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and former minister of aviation, Osita Chidoka, has said the South-East geo-political zone should back the party in the 2023 elections, claiming that it would be unwise for Igbos to leave the party they have supported since 1999.

Chidioka also claimed that the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, who is from the zone, will disrupt PDP’s dominance in the South East.

He made the statement on Sunday while fielding questions on the Channels Television’s Sunday Politics programme.

“The Igbo position for me is that our significant investment in the PDP for 24 years cannot be thrown away overnight. I remain in the PDP, and many Igbos remain in the PDP,” Chidoka said.

He added that advocates of an Igbo presidency outside the PDP are not wrong, but maintained that the main opposition party is the shortest route for the Igbos to clinch the presidency.

South-East cannot throw away its 24 years of investment and dump the PDP, says a chieftain of the party Osita Chidoka. He believes an Igbo presidency is closer than expected.
