Senator Ike Ekweremadu, former Deputy Senate President, has said the South East will not vote for Peter Obi in the forthcoming presidential election in 2023.
Ekweremadu said this in a short interview with newsmen making the rounds on social media.
The former Deputy Senate President acknowledged that Obi is a credible presidential candidate but the South East will rather vote for the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, than throw its votes for Obi.
â€œI can assure you that the South East will vote for PDP, we ask ourselves if Obi wins the election and the answer is no.
â€œCan the East afford to throw away our votes and be sentimental about a matter that concerns our people, our children and future? No.
â€œWe donâ€™t intend to do a thing that we will regret in the future but we believe that Obi is qualified.â€
