Okechukwu Mocks Atiku As APC Northern Govs Back Southern Presidency



The Director-General of the Voice of Nigeria (VON), Osita Okechukwu, has mocked Atiku Abubakar over his emergence as the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Okechuku said Atiku’s chances of winning the 2023 elections have been ruined after ten Northern All Progressives Congress Governors backed the quest for Southern Presidency.

The APC chieftain made this known in a statement issued on Sunday in Enugu State.

He commended the governors for supporting the zoning of the APC presidential ticket to the South, stating that their action is patriotic and honorable.

Okechukwu also mocked the PDP for jettisoning its zoning arrangement and refusing to zone its presidential ticket to the South.

He said, “Nigerians have now seen that the Dollar Rain, cash and carry primary that produced His Excellency, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar as the PDP presidential candidate was a pyrrhic victory that has nothing in store for the new Nigerian of our dreams.

“I am inclined to believe that Atiku’s victory is pyrrhic going by Greek mythology, and may not lead to ultimate victory, especially with the patriotic stance of his northern brothers.

“I am very elated. I commend APC Governors and political leaders of Northern belt for their profound patriotic statement, which aligns with Mr President’s idea of consensus.

“I must add that this is national healing balm and bridge-building pedigree of APC Governors and political leaders of the Northern belt, which they anchored on the doctrine of progressivism.”
