ABUJA- AHEAD of the 2015 Presidential election, Senator Arthur Nzeribe Wednesday asked his kinsmen, the Igbos to jettison that idea as that will not be feasible because of lack of unity in the zone, just as he warned that the people of the East were not just ready for it.
He also said that if the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP must get it right and move away from its present crises, the National Chairman, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur, all members of the National Working Committee, NWC must go, adding, ‘’the PDP must clear the desk including Bamanga Tukur to get it right.’’
Speaking with Journalists yesterday at his Apo residence in Abuja, the Oguta born Political Maverick from Orlu, Imo State, told his people bluntly that before they seek for the exalted position, they must first put their house in order by speaking in unison.
Chief Nzeribe who based his position on previous unsuccessful attempts by the Igbos and also due to what he termed endemic disarray amongst the Igbo politicians, said, ‘‘Until we start speaking with one voice we cannot get the Presidency’’. We should not try it now, we are not just ready for anything like that, we must first put our house in order.’’
He also warned that ahead of 2015 elections, Nigerians must note that the country was bigger than any body irrespective of status, adding that politicians must therefore put their selfish interest in their handbags to save the country.
