The National Coordinator of Atiku WAZOBIA Gabriel Churchill Chukwuemeka has disclosed the group’s plan to hand over the South-East region to a presidential aspirant, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar.
This is following the inauguration of the coordinators of the group in the Southeast region in Owerri.
The names of the coordinators are: Chukwura Onochie, Anambra; Emeka Charles, Ebonyi; Uche Umazi, Abia; Kanayo Afunugo, Enugu; and Ikechukwu Ohanedo, Imo state.
Chukwuemka told Vanguard that “All of us have seen what this country has been turned into and we need a saviour that will rescue us from this bad governance.
“We need a leader that is well experienced about the issue of governance and that does not discriminate. We need a leader that does not practice nepotism.
“We need a leader that believes in equality and does not segregate along ethnic lines; a leader who believes in the collective interest of the different climes that make up a country.
“Because we are tired of this favouritism style of administration, we are calling on Atiku to come and save this country from collapsing.
“This is a move to ensure that the zone is carried along in the wind of positive change coming to Nigerians and also for the zone to speak in one voice.”
