You can be sure , with Atiku's large pocket his nomination of Peter Obi will be a fait accompli whenever he holds the belated meeting with the South East leaders.

What is your problem again, you don't want Peter Obi, if Atiku pick from another tribe, Igbo are being marginalized. All these IGBO ABU IGBO governors, just be careful. Yesterday it was IPOB, today is Peter Obi. When will you people learn. "Unu a Aňuru Nkwu Gbara Ůka." Kurunu Mmiri Bua ONWE Unu.
