Peter Obi took my votes in South-East and South-South, Atiku 

    Published By:

    The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar has explained why Peter Obi left PDP to the Labour Party where he emerged presidential candidate.

    Atiku claimed his Labour Party counterpart, Obi took his vote in the South-east and South-South during the Saturday’s presidential election.

    The former Vice-President stated this on Thursday while addressing a world press conference to announce his rejection of the outcome of the general elections.

    He said: “I have always said that I would be a stepping stone to an Igbo president of this country. I have always told my Igbo compatriots that you negotiate for power you don’t fight for it.“

    Speaking about why Obi left the PDP, he said, “I think Peter was in a rush.

    “When the campaign started and our PDP governors said that they must produce the president among them, they must produce the vice-president among them, they must produce chief of staff amongst them, Peter got scared and left.

    “I did not get scared, I stood up against the governors. When we formed the PDP some of them were perhaps in secondary school or in university. So, why should I be afraid and I stood up and fought them and I won the primaries.

    “So, if he were there, nothing would have stopped him from becoming a running mate because I had the right of choosing who would be my running mate.

    “Yes, to some extent he wounded the PDP because all the votes he got were PDP votes in the Southeast and South-South.

    “But whether he will achieve his objective is something left to God to decide. If he was there, nothing could have stopped him from becoming my running mate.

    In response to a question on the current state of the Nigerian judiciary, he said, “I took my boss, a sitting president to court 11 times, trial court up to Supreme Court and I never saw any judge and I got judgment.

    “But do you think it is possible to do that today? I cannot say whether it is the same judiciary until I test them.”
