Chairman of The Patriots, Prof. Ben Nwabueze, SAN, on Wednesday said he believed former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, would lead the country to greatness.

The head of Igbo Leaders of Thought said this on Wednesday in Enugu when the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate met with Igbo leaders.

Segun Sowunmi, spokesman of Atiku Presidential Campaign said Nwabueze got emotional during the meeting.

Sowunmi, who posted a photo showing Atiku and the Igbo leader in a warm embrace tweeted Wednesday night: “Touching moment Prof Ben Nwabueze almost moved to tears.”

“I will not die until your become president”, he quoted Nwabueze as saying.

The endorsement of Atiku was taken by Southeast elders, comprising political, traditional and religious leaders as well as women groups.

The communiqué read by a legal luminary, Olisa Agbakoba, SAN said: “The summit deliberated on the State of Ndigbo in Nigeria today especially after years of exclusion from the center.

“This country has never been as divided as it is today. We Igbos have always yearned for a level playing field with justice, equity and fairness.

“The Summit recognized the nomination of His Excellency Mr. Peter Obi Former Governor of Anambra State as the Vice Presidential Candidate of the PDP and fully endorses this nomination.

“It was acknowledged that this nomination puts Ndigbo back in the center of governance. It is therefore important that Ndigbo should rally behind the Atiku/Obi ticket.”

Hmm,  an Aged Nigerian is so much in love with Methuselah,  he is wishing to be like the man who is fabled to live eternally.  If,  Waziri Adamawa eventually attains his goal,  hope he will watch his back,  so that we don't have a repeat of Musa Yar'Adua.

I read vanguard and I observed many ibos complaining,it comes to me as a shock. Hello,atiku picked Peter obi as his running mate. If atiku does not deliver and Peter obi sits down watching like muuuuu whose fault??. I don't know how people think sometimes. The way we think helps the evil prevail.

After crafting DECREE 34 (Unification Decree) for Aguiyi Ironsi, he now believes that Atiku will try and change things that will remove the central power from FGN. Sharp Man.
